Kirsty Marshall, Qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist
I work with individuals from a variety of backgrounds offering long and short term sessions either face to face or via video call. I work with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, trauma, low self- esteem and relationship breakdowns.
My approach is to listen and encourage the individuals I work with whilst providing a safe and secure environment to help empower clients to work towards a more satisfying and fulfilling life. I am a person- centred counsellor with training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
During our sessions I offer
- A safe, confidential and non judgmental environment.
- A place where you can both challenge and explore your thoughts, experiences and emotions.
- A supportive relationship that will encourage the development of personal growth.
I strongly believe in the powerful effect counselling can have on individuals. At times it can be quite challenging to express our emotions with those closest to us and share with them the difficulties that we may be experiencing. I offer a neutral space to explore any kind of issue, and in an environment that is safe, supportive and confidential.
I believe that counselling can have a profound effect on an individual. From my experience it is a privilege to be trusted to help and support someone through life’s difficulties. Watching my clients evolve through the process and find solace in their life is extremely rewarding.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
