My name is Kay, thank you for looking at my site. I have thirty years of experience in helping people through stressful times. I have specialist mental health knowledge and therapeutic skills gained through extensive NHS experience. Recent work as a consultant psychotherapist includes counselling women and girls in the field of rape crisis and childhood sexual abuse, social services, NHS and family courts.
I work with adults, children and young people, parents and infants on a short to medium term of six to twelve sessions, or an open ended basis with the aim of enabling you to deepen self-awareness, to overcome difficulties and resolve habitual patterns that may no longer serve you in well-being and relationship. You will be met with warmth, respect and interest in whatever it is that is troubling you.
Having worked at a senior level in a maximum secure psychiatric hospital, community mental health teams, and more recently a rape crisis charity I have experience in working with significant psychological and emotional difficulty. Areas of special interest include complex trauma and dissociative disorders, post-natal and ante-natal depression, attachment issues, trans-generational trauma, bereavement where there has been an unexpected death or homicide, and survivors of childhood sexual abuse. People who are experiencing severe and enduring mental health problems, and people in crisis are welcome. I am familiar with the Mental Health Act and it's application. I am a training supervisor for the Karuna Institute, a UKCP Humanistic and Integrative training college in Devon, UK.
Services provided include:
- Supportive psychotherapy for women with post natal depression
- Working therapeutically with complex trauma and dissociative disorders including DID.
- Parent infant therapy
- Couples' therapy
- Clinical supervision and wilfulness based supervision
- Counselling for children and young people
Please see the website for further information on services provided and fees.
The first meeting lasts for half an hour and is free, with no obligation on either side.This gives you an opportunity to describe what you would like to get out of coming to therapy at this time, and to ask any questions that you may have about my approach, training or qualifications. If you are coming a long way I may be able to reserve time (at my home practice) so that if we do decide to work together the first session can be held. It is important that we feel able to work together and it can be useful to have time and space to reflect on that before starting work together. Sometimes it may be that a colleague or another service may be more helpful for you and I may refer on.
