I am a skilled and experienced CBT therapist (BABCP accredited) and Forensic Psychologist (HCPC registered). I have a wide range of experience in mental health, having worked with clients across the age range and various settings. I have outlined the modalities that I use within session below.
I aim to equip individuals with a greater understanding of themselves and the necessary skills to overcome past difficulties and current challenges.
Therapy can be offered in individual sessions or as part of a group.
The number of sessions you need depends on the difficulty you need help with. Often this will be between six to twenty weekly or fortnightly sessions lasting between 60 and 90 minutes each.
We start by discussing your specific difficulty and set goals for you to achieve.
Therapy is not a quick fix. It involves you actively engaging with therapy during and between sessions.
Although I will not tell you what to do, I can help you decide what difficulties you want to work on in order to help you improve your situation. By the end of the therapy you will know what therapy techniques work for you and have created your own toolbox, so you essentially become your own therapist.
Kelly uses the models below to inform her work
“Having a personality disorder, I was told by so many therapists that they couldn’t work with me, I felt judged and alone but with Kelly I just felt support and listened too. We worked at a pace that was suitable for me but Kelly knew when to push me to try that little bit harder. I cannot thank Kelly enough for her patience and kindness and making me feel like me again”
Kelly covers the following topics in individual and group sessions:
As well as individual therapy Kelly works with couples, although many of the reasons couples choose to start therapy are similar to individuals there are a range of additional difficulties such as:
We tend to have routine checks on our physical health but we often forget about our mental health.
At your mental health MOT, you will discuss your current wellbeing and have a comprehensive mental health assessment with a qualified psychologist.
We will explore what is going on for you and get quickly to the root of any imbalance or difficulties, identify positive choices you’ve overlooked, and suggest the best ways for you to move forward.
By taking the time to complete a mental health MOT you could benefit from improved focus, increased self-esteem, a motivation boost, less stress or anxiety, a renewed sense of purpose and overall, just feel better.
At the end of the MOT you will be provided with a bespoke package of handouts and/or ebooks to support you in moving forward, improve your mental wellness and living the life you want and deserve.
Kelly develops and delivers a wide range of workshops locally and virtually. These are tailored to the each individual, group or organisation. Some of the previous topics have including reducing burnout, anxiety management, improving self-esteem, incorporating mindfulness, understanding and managing Irritable Bowel Syndrome, resilience building and much more. She has been invited to share her knowledge at international events and retreats in Canada, Spain and Switzerland as well as in the United Kingdom.
Kelly is able to offer practical mental health and wellbeing services to support businesses. It is widely accepted that employers need to ensure that their teams are getting the best support for their mental wellbeing and understand what activities that can incorporate into their working day to enhance their mental wellbeing.
Kelly is keen to continue to share her psychological skills and knowledge so please contact her to find out how she could develop a tailored package for your next event, workshop, retreat or programme.
“Coming to therapy with my wife was a culture shock, I didn’t know what to expect, but we are so glad we did we were able to improve our communication and be us again without the arguments and negativity”
