Counselling with Kevin
Hello and thank you for visiting my website. If you are considering counselling you have taken a positive step to get this far - I know from my own experience it can feel scary to reach out.
My aim is simple: to help you get close to what is troubling you, and to help you understand what needs to change, and how to make those changes, in order to make your life better.
Often my clients face a dilemma, not sure of how they feel or how to deal with situations or problems. As a professionally trained psychotherapeutic counsellor with 10 years of clinical experience, I can help you identify and untangle what is going on, so that you can gain a clearer understanding of the issues affecting you and the solutions you need.
I believe we are all doing the best we can at every moment, with the internal resources we possess at that point in time. We have the ability to learn from our mistakes and build our resources to make better choices in the future.
I know private counselling costs precious money and time - so my aim is to provide affordable and effective counselling to get you to the better place you need as quickly as possible. Some clients achieve this in a small number of sessions, while other clients have ongoing life-situations and wish to work for longer periods. I work with a wide range of adult clients from all backgrounds and of all ages to address a very wide range of issues including:
Relationship issues (of any kind)
Abuse (past or present)
Issues around sexuality
Bullying (past or present)
Loss, bereavement and grieving
General unhappiness or unease
Meaning and meaninglessness
Thank you for reading my page - I hope you get in touch so that I can help with the issues affecting you.
Location, cost and availability…

Relationships are Everything!
Every problem you ever had, will have, or have now, are to do with your relationships with people in your life...
We are relational creatures - we can't exist without relationships in our lives. When they go wrong it can have a profound effect upon us, causing us to go from happiness to despair in seconds.
Being half of a couple is trickyHuman beings are naturally predisposed to being in a close, loving relationship. However, finding such a relationship and being able to know if it meets enough of our individual needs can be tricky.
I also help couples understand where they are in their progression through the stages of relationship. Many couples stumble when the initial romance fades, feeling the relationship is not for them or that something has gone wrong, when in fact they may be experiencing a natural shift in depth within the relationship. I also help my clients rediscover their individual selves - the very selves which attracted the other person to begin with.
In relationship counselling I focus my clients to identify what is happening for each person, and what needs to change. I aim to create a fair, equal and balanced environment, helping each person to understand each other, why they are experiencing 'blockers' in their relationship and how to overcome them.
