About me

Hello, I’m Kirsty.

I provide weekly creative and experiential psychotherapy to help you feel safe, supported and resourced to explore whatever is important to you, to cope with any difficulties, stress, anxiety, overwhelm and stuckness, and to experience growth and healing.
 
I work holistically, attending to the interconnectedness of our mind, body and emotions. I offer opportunities for you to connect, regulate and learn about all aspects of yourself through movements, actions and activities that feel safe and comfortable for you. This means that as well as talking and listening, I may invite you to create images and sculpts with objects, use empty chairs to try out different roles, explore movement and expression, or map out experiences and relationships. 

These techniques are flexible, and I will work alongside you in a collaborative process, adapting them to suit your needs, at a pace that fits for you.

About me

I am passionate about supporting people to feel safe and connected with themselves, their community and nature. I have extensive experience working with people, helping them to recover from hardships and challenges, learn more about themselves, and create meaningful change.
 
Before training as a psychotherapist, I worked in a range of different education, youth and community work and professional development settings across the UK and abroad, in both the voluntary and statutory sector. I've also set up and run many of my own collaborative and solo private ventures.

I am a qualified Psychodrama Psychotherapist, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work from a strength-based and trauma-informed approach, integrating various different theoretical perspectives in my work, including attachment theory and polyvagal theory. 
 
I provide weekly individual psychotherapy from the Sage and Magnolia Therapy Centres in Nottingham city, and also run a weekly therapy group from the Iona School, in Sneinton, Nottingham.
 
I also provide Creative Outdoor Therapy. I have worked in and with nature for many years and am a Recognised Professional in Outdoor Learning, a member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning, a qualified Mountain Leader and Forest School practitioner.
 
How to get started
 
I understand how important it is to find the right therapy and therapist for you. I offer a free, no commitment initial online / telephone meeting where you can discuss what you want to achieve from therapy and see if I’m the right person to help you at this time. 
 
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book an initial meeting. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest wishes,
 
Kirsty

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
