Kylea Sustek MBACP
Turning the age of just 18, I was very depressed. I had been for a few years due to certain events I experienced in my teens. I had become to feel extremely stuck within my young age. I felt trapped within this dark bubble that was filled with so many negative emotions; sadness, depression, hurt, anxiety, anger, confusion, jealousy…
I had tried numerous attempts to make various positive changes to my life, all of which failed. Thankfully I did not give up hope. Instead, I accepted the fact that I wasn’t able to ‘do it alone’ and so I sought professional help. It was here when I started my own journey within therapy when my life began to change dramatically and more importantly... when I did.
As I walked to my car after my very last counselling session, I was suddenly hit by a unique memorable life-changing moment. I physically felt as though I had been slapped around the face with this new realization, becoming aware of what it was that I was meant to do with the rest of my life – To become a counsellor and to give other individuals the chance that my counsellor had given me; The ability to change.
I now have over 15 years of experience working within a wide range of mental health issues, life difficulties and both individual and relationships struggles and now run my own private practice in Rainham, Essex.

Think of a fingerprint, no two are the same, right? This relates to us as individuals too. We may share the same life events as others; miscarriage, divorce, bereavement, abortion, cancer, etc. Yet, no two of us will experience the secondary implications; emotions, thoughts, changes, senses of loss etc, as those of others. Why? As we are all unique individuals.
Read my blog on 'Primary and Secondary experiences'. to gain more insight into how just one experience in life, can cause us multiple complications that we are unaware of.
This is why Integrative Counselling is the better option, rather than working with a counsellor who only works within one or two main approaches. What works for one, will not work for many others. However, integrative Counselling is designed to be extremely flexible for all individuals as it brings together different elements of specific therapies, constantly making adaptions to work with all individuals as a 'whole', within a unique way to help resolve personal issues.
