About me

Hi, my name's Kyra. I'm a BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I help adults, children and young people. I can help with depression and anxiety disorders, low self-esteem, recovering from childhood abuse, anxiety and panic attacks, and complex PTSD. I can help children recover from school bullying, especially in relation to special educational needs and disablities and I can support young careers, including the siblings of children with SEND. I also specialise in recovering from a range of addictions, You can find out more about my work at neurotribe.uk or: www.tlctherapy.online

My style is integrative, and at it's heart, person-centred. This means we focus on you, a person, in a room with me, another person. I strive to help you understand your own needs better. I work at psychological depth. I offer a safe, confidential space, and expertise in psychology and psycho-education. You will find my therapy both gentle and challenging at times, to suit your needs. Additionally, my training in Arts Psychotherapy means we can use many different artforms as a helpful tool if you wish to.

Conversation is at the centre of my work, and I am trained and experienced in using many artforms as an additional therapeutic tool alongside dialogue.

As well as face to face therapy, I offer different types of online therapy, each has unique benefits. I offer therapy by video messaging (via secure online platforms such as Zoom) and therapy via phone.

Both on and offline, my therapy space is a shame-free confidential environment where all are welcome and we work at your pace to reach your goals. For substance misuse counselling, we can work together whether you are abstinent or not, as long as your substance use is stable.

You can call, text or email me for an initial conversation about your needs, or to book a consultation. I am likely to be with another client, so please leave a brief message with your preferred method and time for contact, and I will get back to you within 48 hours.

(Neurodiverse clients struggling with addiction are very welcome at TLC & C. To find out more about my neurodiverse-specific therapy work please see Additional Information below).

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered, qualified therapist. I also lecture in counselling & psychotherapy at a leading London college.

Among other qualifications I have a PG Cert with Merit in Counselling and an Advanced Diploma  from the leading London institute for Arts Psychotherapy and over fifteen years' experience of empowering people to move through addictions, childhood traumas, suicidal feelings and emotional difficulties. I work with many young women recovering from sexual abuse. I also support healthcare and medical professionals with their mental health & wellbeing.

I have worked on gang prevention projects, as Head of Enrichment and Welfare in a pupil referral unit, and as Lead Honorary Arts Psychotherapist for a well-respected national drug and alcohol recovery service. I am now a therapist in private practice at TLC&C, and am Co-Director of NeuroTribe UK CIC- a specialist practice that provides therapy for neurodiverse children, young people and families.

Member organisations


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.
