Hi. My name is Kristina. I specialise in women’s counselling in the Worcestershire area. I aspire to help women to overcome difficulties in life and lead a fulfilling life. I believe that every one of us deserves a better life and, what is more, each and every one of us can progress towards it; and make improvements whichever way one wants to.
I strongly believe that you don’t have to be stuck with your problems or issues alone; you have a choice to work on whatever has been bothering you. It might be very difficult to confide in a stranger, but my warmth and acceptance will offer a safe environment where you can speak of what troubles you, explore and work on your issues without being judged or criticised.
I will be treating you with the utmost respect and whatever we discuss will remain highly confidential. You will have control of what you want to work on and I will guide you professionally to the best of my ability. We will work at a pace which you find most comfortable.
My approach to counselling is Integrative which includes person-centred and psychodynamic theories. I am also registered and accredited member of BACP.
Training, qualifications & experience

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
