Kyla Taylor, BA(hons), MBACP
Life can be a challenge and there may come a time that you are no longer able to deal with your feelings and emotions on you own, that’s where I may be able to help. My name is Kyla and I offer counselling to individuals and couples over 18.
I often get asked “why do people come to counselling?” My answer is simple.. Its usually because they want something to change. Counselling is a hard process and the client feels brave enough to find out more. That change could be a relationship, a mindset or a life stage. Change can be painful and difficult, Our lives tend to be full of expectations, not just oour own but the people around us, we carry around so many “should’s, could’s, must’s” I will help you work through the negative feelings leaving you with a healthier sense of self. Enabling you to feel better equipped to deal with the day to day challenges of life. This is your journey and as such I aim to facilitate your needs as much as possible. That could be the introduction of walking and talking therapy, creative therapy, fortnightly, evening, early morning appointments.
I strongly believe that every person is unique and therefore the focus of my practice is YOU. I want to know how life is for you, how you experience your feelings, thoughts, symptoms or diagnosis. You are more than words on a piece of paper
If you are experiencing feelings of isolation, depression, anxiety, sadness, grief, loss, stress or anger and wish to feel differently I may be able to help. Individual therapy focuses on building a trusting relationship between you and I. I look further than the diagnoses, I want to know how you experience anxiety,grief, depression or loss. What works for you, and what you would like to change. Everybody is individual and I want to celebrate that individuality and find a path that works for you. A path you carve out, I will walk alongside you in your journey. Supporting you therapeutically when things get hard which is inevitable in therapy because you are opening up past or present hurts and looking ahead to a different future.
I pride myself in treating all clients fairly, with respect and dignity, seeing the person in front of me and not the diagnosis. I have seen clients with many diagnoses including, stress, anxiety, depression, post natal depression, ocd, personality disorders, Living losses and grief. You do not have to have a diagnoses of any sort to seek therapy, you may be at a junction in your life and you need somebody neutral to discuss your feelings with. For me it is vital to see the person behind that diagnosis, feeling or thought. Finding out what’s important to you and what changes you wish to make.
I want to offer a safe, non judgmental, calm, comfortable, confidential space, where you can explore the themes you wish to explore without the expectations of others
Couples therapy focuses on the relationship between the couple with me as the therapist very much on the outside. Homework is set after each session encouraging a re-connect with each other.
The therapy I offer for couples focuses on communication between the couple. Learning how to get both individual and couples needs met. I see couples who wish to
*learn to communicate better,
*couples following an affair,
*couples in conflict,
*couples who have decided to separate but wish to do so in a calm respectful manor.
You don't need to wait until you are in crisis before seeking help. You may wish to learn to communicate better, or even argue better. We are never going to agree 100% of the time so learning to be respectful during a disagreement is a key to resolving conflict. Difference and sameness are both needed to make the relationship work.
If you would like to find out more please email me with your questions, alternatively please give me a call and we can find out if I’m the right counsellor for you.
