Kirsty Turner - Integrative Psychotherapist (UKCP), CBT (BABCP), Supervision
Individual psychotherapy and counselling for Adults in Belper, Derbyshire.
Psychotherapy is an opportunity for you to explore your life and develop a deeper understanding of yourself. It can help you connect better with others and find ways to live according to what really matters to you. It can support you to find new perspectives on areas you are struggling with and wanting to change.
You can begin therapy for a variety of different reasons and you may want to make sense of and work though specific issues you are struggling with.
I can offer you Integrative Psychotherapy or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as an approach to your therapy.
Integrative Psychotherapy draws on a variety of relational psychotherapy approaches to help bring change. It will help you explore the patterns from your past and current life that may be causing you difficulty. It can help you improve how you connect with yourself and others, and support you to find a sense of integration to your life. As a relational therapy, our therapeutic relationship will be central to helping support your growth.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an approach that helps to make sense of the thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours that make up our experiences. It supports you to use this understanding to begin to respond more helpfully, so that you can move forward in your life.
How My Service Works
You can contact me by phone or email and we will arrange an initial assessment appointment. This session will last 1 hour and help us explore your issues, consider what you want from therapy and decide whether I may be able to help you.
If we agree to begin working together, therapy sessions will be weekly and last 50 minutes. We will agree what approach I will use and consider some therapy goals to guide our work. Throughout your therapy, we will review your progress and make any changes needed to help you move forward.
