SANDRA KUTNER Registered Counsellor MBACP Ad. Dip
Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depresssion, feeling unable to engage in your life as you do normally - your symptoms may feel overwhelming! Seeking emotional support will enable you to engage with uncomfortable thoughts and feelings that you may be experiencing in both your mind and body.
As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, I offer an environment based on support and empathy, encouraging discussion without barriers. I will actively listen and support you in making sense of your conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings.
Whilst my counselling style is non directive, I will enable you to understand the reasons for your array of emotions and support your growth through our collaborative working relationship. As our therapeutic relationship grows, you may benefit from my challenging some of your thought processes with the aim of helping you to strengthen your emotional wellbeing.
My experience centres around a broad range of presenting issues including relationships, anxiety, depression, abuse (physical and emotional), bereavement, stress/work related stress and self esteem issues. I offer both short and long term counselling.
Forging a strong and collaborative counselling relationship will enable you to make sense of your past, recognising what is important for you in your life right now, enabling you to make choices that feel right for you.
At our initial session we will explore what has brought you to counselling and build a strategy for how we may work together. For us to build a therapeutic relationship, it is important that by the end of the assessment you feel we can connect on an emotional level and importantly feel that you will benefit from our continued working together.
I provide an initial free 20 minute telephone consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a Registered Counsellor with an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, I incorporate a range of psychological theories into my practice, applying them appropriately for the specific issues you are experiencing.
Having had life changing counselling experiences myself, I really want you to have your own unique experience!
I have worked extensively with bereaved clients who found themselves traumatised by the loss of a loved one. Together we work through the stages of the loss before being able to re-enter their lives, albeit a slightly different life to the one they left behind.
My experience in a Womens Centre enables me to help clients make different life choices; at odds from the challenging experiences they may have tolerated in the past.
My past experience includes working in a corporate HR environment for a number of years, which has enabled me to appreciate the variety of work/life balance issues that we experience and to understand how they affect our wellbbeing.
