About me

Hello, I am Kirsten, a Counsellor and Wellbeing Coach who helps my clients to harness their strengths to reach self-development, growth and wellbeing.

We all have a confident, ambitious, and vibrant side to us, but sometimes life throws us curve balls, leading to negative emotions and unhelpful coping strategies, which stall our growth.

If you are ready to take control of your own life and create permanent positive changes, then let’s chat to see how I can help you.

What I offer

As a Counsellor and Wellbeing Coach with a Master’s degree in psychology, I have worked with many issues, including trauma, anxiety, phobias, depression, self-development and working with athletes.

Apart from one-on-one sessions, I have developed a 90-day coaching program called The Wellbeing Project. This Project is your guide to ultimate Wellness, which includes weekly modules and workbooks and a weekly session with me. This approach allows my clients to get the most out of the sessions while having material to work through each week.

I have a holistic approach to Wellness and cover all these aspects in The Wellbeing Project. Enrolling in this program will get you from being overwhelmed and frustrated to your healthiest life, physically and emotionally!

I am also a BWRT® or BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® practitioner. BWRT® is a type of psychotherapy like no other! Terence Watts, a UK Psychotherapist who developed it, proved it to be a highly effective technique with outstanding results. I have added this to my therapeutic toolbox by training as a Level 1 practitioner. BWRT® helps clients work through difficulties in a significantly shorter period than traditional therapeutic approaches.

I offer online and face to face sessions in Stroud.
