Kristina Hagstrom, BSc, MA, Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling, BACP, APECS
I am a trained BACP certified counsellor and Holistic Therapist. I started my exploration of Humanistic Psychology 14 years ago when I found myself looking for a deeper meaning in life. I worked as an executive leader and manager in the corporate world, most of my career until I retrained to become a counsellor and executive coach (APECS). I have 25 years of experience of working with people. I studied at Middlesex University, graduating in 2011 as a Psychosynthesis counsellor. I've also studied synthesis of meditation and western psychology, and graduated as a holistic Therapist 2006. I charge £ 50/h and £60 for couples.
Counselling & coaching can give you a better understanding
of yourself and it can be helpful to solve some difficulties you are
experiencing. It will give you a choice to make some changes in your life.
Over time I’ve helped men and women, with the complexity of life
challenges. Finding identity and direction in life when you lose track:
- Divorce or Separation
- Relationship difficulties - I work with couples
- Low Self esteem
- Addictive behaviours
I am looking forward meeting you,

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Offer out of hours sessions
Where do we begin?
The initial session is an opportunity for us to meet and to discuss what has brought you to counselling/therapy or coaching, it is also to identify what you are hoping to gain from the therapeutic work.
Where will we meet?
I am based in Fishbourne near Emsworth and Chichester, on the south coast of England, 10 minutes walk from Bosham train station.
How long is the process?
We will give consideration to how many sessions feels right for you. Therapeutic work can be short term (generally 4-10 sessions) or longer term and more open ended.
How does it work?
In the initial session, we can identify a structure to the work that fits with your hopes and expectations. This can be adapted and changed if needed.
How long is a session?
The session will last for 60 minutes.
Counselling/therapy and coaching to me, is a humanistic approach with the view that we all have the capacity to heal ourselves. I listen without judgment and we will look at alternative ways of problem solving. My role is to create a trustful working space to facilitate exploration, understanding and healing. It can also be helpful to understand the links between the body and our mind. I draw on the work from Dr R Assagioli, C.Jung, Winnicott, Faisal Muqaddam and A.H Almaas
