SANDRA KUTNER Registered Counsellor MBACP Ad. Dip
Are feelings of anxiety, sadness or depression overwhelming you and taking their toll on your personal and professional life.
If you are experiencing repeated patterns of negative thinking and feelings of low self-worth, then maybe this is the time for you to really focus on your emotional wellbeing.
In a safe, nonjudgemental space I will listen and support you in making sense of your thoughts and feelings, encouraging discussion and an exchange of ideas. I will help you to develop healthy coping strategies and a more positive way of dealing with the problems that life can throw at us.
Forging a strong and collaborative counselling relationship will enable us to make sense of your past, recognising what is important for you in your life at the moment, helping you to make choices that feel right.
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.
Our initial session is an opportunity for you to focus on you and what you want from our work together. At the end of the session you can decide if you would like to continue counselling, there is no commitment beyond the first session ifeither you do not feel this is the rigth time for you or that I may not be the right Counsellor for you.
Before booking your first appointment I also provide an initial free 20 minute telephone consultation which clients have found helpful.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a Registered Counsellor trained in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, I incorporate a range of psychological theories and approaches into my practice, applying them appropriately for the specific issues you are experiencing.
Having had life changing counselling experience myself, I want you to have your own unique, memorable experience!
I have worked extensively with bereaved clients who found themselves traumatised by the loss of a loved one. Together we can work through your loss so you can learn to heal and find a new and different way of being in the world.
My experience in a Womens Centre enables me to help clients make new choices; different from the unhealthy ones they may have made 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 wellbeing.
