Kirsty Murray Psychotherapy and Counselling UKCP (accred), MBACP
Are you feeling alone, overwhelmed, lost or confused about which direction to take, or stuck and don't know where to turn? Or are you feeling generally anxious and stressed about life? Are you struggling at home, with family issues, in your relationship or at work? It’s completely normal to find things tough at times and you don’t have to struggle through it alone.
I provide a non-judgemental and confidential space to enable you to explore the issues which have brought you to therapy, at your own pace. I believe that the client-therapist relationship is an essential part of growth and change. It is therefore important that you feel comfortable working with me as your therapist, in order for you to be able to get the most out of our time together. Please contact me and we can arrange a free initial consultation to enable you to make an informed decision about whether I am the correct therapist for you.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means I have been trained in a variety of different psychotherapeutic theories. Which ones I use depends on the individual's needs. Within my work I utilise aspects of attachment theory, object relations, transactional analysis, gestalt, CBT, grounding techniques and mindfulness.
Training, qualifications & experience
I graduated with a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute in 2019.
Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute) - 2018
I have over five years experience working both in private practice and in charitable organisations, offering face to face counselling to adults and teenagers with a wide range of presenting issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship problems, bereavement, childhood physical, sexual or emotional abuse, coercive control, loneliness and work issues. I also worked for several years providing telephone counselling to children. I have a large amount of experience working with carers.
I can work with clients for short term work (6-8 weeks) or contract for longer term work or leave it open-ended.
I undertake personal therapy and regular clinical supervision with a UKCP registered integrative supervisor, to ensure that I am providing an ethical and effective service.
I am an accredited full clinical member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy, an organisation which regulates counsellors and psychotherapists, promotes high standards of practice and by whose ethical standards I abide. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist I worked within the Pharmaceutical Industry, providing IT solutions for clinical trials. I managed a team of project managers across different global locations including Japan, China, Germany and France.
