Kyla De Graauw
Try as we might, life is not always easy & there may be times when we need additional support. Whether this is in the form of regular sessions to address a specific concern, develop strategies & learn tools to be equipped to cope, or a one-off appointment to debrief with a neutral & compassionate third party in order to gain perspective, help is available.
I offer relaxed, and individually tailored sessions, where we will work alongside each other to clearly determine what you are looking to address. We will collaboratively set goals and cover topics at your own pace.
I work from a person-centred approach, which draws on your own unique strengths and preference. Sessions will be tailored to you, and built on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), with the inclusion of psycho-education, where beneficial.

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Having gone through a divorce myself, I find that I thrive in being able to offer support to those going through a separation / divorce, who are looking for ways of doing so respectfully. We are so often told that this needs to be an aggressive and ugly experience, but I honestly don’t think that needs to be the case.
