My name is Kristina Hill, and I am a Trauma Informed Therapist, and a Children’s Counsellor. In other roles, I have worked with families, adults and children and young people as a teacher, and mentor and have a background in Psychology, Mental health, Education, and social care. I work integratively with clients with a trauma informed focus and I have good experience working with children and young people and safeguarding dilemmas.
I am a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS)
I adhere to the BACP ethical framework for good practice and the ACTO Guidelines for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My qualifications include an undergraduate degree in Psychology with Criminology, Level 4 Diploma in Counselling and therapeutic studies and a Level 5 in Counselling Children and young people and Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision as well as other CPD in a range of topics such as Neurodiversity, Safeguarding, Trauma and Online Therapy.
Supervision is a specialised form of professional mentoring and I will aim to collaborate with my supervisees reflectively, in order to ensure professional standards are met and that the quality of work is maintained. It is also a space to advance learning, stimulate creative think about and support with self-care and resilience. I am Neuro- Divergence and LGBTQ plus friendly and Trauma Informed.
Sessions can be face to face, online via TEAMS/Zoom or over the telephone .
I regret that I am currently full at the moment.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
