Hello and welcome.
My name is Kirsty White and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I work from a private office in Ossett, Flushdyke near Wakefield.
I also work as an integrative psychotherapist, providing a person centred approach to enable individuals to restore their well-being.
I provide mental health services for:
Adults, Adolescents and Children.
Together we will take a journey, completely tailored to what you or your child chooses to explore at each session.
I provide a completely safe and non judgemental space, to ensure you have the opportunity to work through any barriers that prevent you from living a fulfilled and happy life.
I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their Code of Ethics & Practice. I attend regular supervision.
