Kirsty Aitken CPCAB Dip Couns. MBACP
I offer Person Centred Counselling on behalf of Lemon Counselling, offering one to one sessions in a safe, confidential space. I also offer "you time" where you can explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment.
Within these sessions, I will not tell you what to do, but instead help you to discover the tools to be able to decide what to do yourself, whilst walking by your side and sharing your experience through the way you communicate with me.
There is no problem too big or small. I see clients dealing with a number of issues from stress to addiction, anxiety to depression.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed all my formal training at Epping Forest College in Loughton, Essex where I gained my counselling qualification. Although I iam fully qualified, I believe it is important for counsellors to continue their professional development through more short courses depending on their interests and clients.
I have attended several of these and intend on continuing to do so, so that I can always be the best counsellor I can be for you. I started seeing clients in 2015 at The Living Room, a Rehabilitation Centre specialising in addiction and I am also the sole counsellor at The Women’s Refuge in Stevenage, helping women who have faced abuse to get back on their feet. I really enjoy being part of these agencies as well as seeing clients at Lemon Counselling; my private practice.
There is no problem too big or small and whether you are experiencing anxiety, relationship issues, addiction or something else, I am sure that I will be able to work together with you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment.
