Hi, I'm Kirsty
I hope you find the support you are looking for. To help you reflect on whether I might be able to help, let me tell you a bit about how I work.
KAM stands for; Kindness, Acceptance, Meaning the core values I hold both personally and professionally. When working with me I will provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space where you can feel heard, and supported to deal with the issues and challenges that have brought you to seek support.
As an integrated psychotherapist / counsellor, I can work responsively to your needs, using a range of interventions, and finding the best approach for you.
I offer a face-to-face service in a welcoming environment, adhering to COVID 19 guidelines. For those who may prefer not to travel, or are shielding, I work online and by telephone and have undertaken additional learning to ensure both are as comfortable an experience for you as the client.
Training, qualifications & experience
Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, with over 30 years working in Health & Social Care settings and relevant qualifications in that field.
I am also a Companion with Seasons for Growth - an educational support for grief and loss, and have experience of counselling those receiving palliative care and treatment in and out of hospice settings.
I have both professional and personal experience of the impact on individuals and families with a diagnosis of Dementia and Parkinson's Disease.
