Behind all this information is a human who you will be working alongside.
I'm Kirsty, an individual, who is very passionate about offering people whatever it is they need to feel more comfortable and confident in themselves. I offer therapy for any and all issues, and am open to working with anyone.
My way of working is very relaxed. I don't believe in pressuring you to behave a certain way or believe in something. I allow you to be you and I will accept you for who you are. In turn I am me, there is no façade, no suit or blazer, me as I am.
I take great joy and pride in my work, in being able to provide a time and space for people who want to not only be listened to but to actually be heard. Working alongside individuals as they begin to discover who they really are and making the necessary changes to thrive and grow is what makes me so passionate about what I do.
My previous experience can be found across several organisations. By working with different organisations I was surrounded by a diverse range of clients ranging from sixteen to seventy with issues from low self-esteem to grief.
I approach therapy with the intention of being a part of your team. This working relationship isn't solely on my shoulders and it isn't just on yours. We split the work between us to get you to where you would like to be. I want to emphasise that I will never judge you, ever. My aim here is to facilitate your personal growth and to support you on your journey of self discovery.
The issues in which I can facilitate you through the therapeutic process are: anxiety, bullying, bereavement & loss, depression, family issues, relationships problems, stress and trauma.
I specialise in working with low self-esteem and low self-confidence. This particular area is a passion of mine, I am a strong believer in embracing who you are and liking the parts of you that make you different. My firm belief is that we were all given a voice and we should use it, with many clients we have worked through the importance of using your voice to gain respect and the understanding you deserve. Sometimes in life we have to be our own personal cheerleaders and that's ok.
Through therapy the hope is that we can work together to uncover why you don't feel confident or maybe why you don't like yourself that much. By exploring where the thoughts come from and the impact they have had on you it will allow us to challenge and prove those thoughts wrong. Our work will stop the negative voice, the bully, in your head or in front you, from having so much power. Together, we will help you find your voice and use it to stand up for yourself and embrace who you are.
