Hi I’m Kristian a Counsellor based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. I offer face to face counselling (although this is currently limited). I offer telephone and online counselling. I aim to provide a relationship where people can explore their thoughts and feelings, helping them make sense of them. I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, identity issues, abuse and loss. Sometimes people feel that something just doesn’t feel right. This might be a relationship issue or a behaviour they feel they want to change. I work with the past, present and the future, aiming to work at your pace.

There are times in our lives when we feel completely lost and alone. We start to question our own judgment or feel 'adrift' without knowing why. There can be lots of reasons for feeling this way. Perhaps because of a bereavement, the end of a relationship or friendship, losing your job, your community or a tradition or routine that you had become used to. These are just some of the reasons that we start to lose the certainty in life that we once had. Or maybe you have always had a nagging feeling that some aspect of your life remained 'unanswered' or that you have been living in a 'fog' where something is missing?

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I recognise that starting counselling can be challenging however it can also provide opportunities for personal development and a better understanding of our current situation. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is extremely important, and is the foundation of all the work we do together. The relationship is built on respect, honesty and the use of empathy.

There are times when life can feel overwhelming, when we feel we need some extra support in order to shoulder what life throws at us. I aim to provide this support for you, giving you the time and space to develop your awareness, understanding and implement change in your life. This could be by talking through and making sense of painful memories, tackling anxieties and low self-esteem or confidence, overcoming low mood, navigating through relationships and difficult circumstances or developing coping skills during significant periods of change.

Making the first move to see a counsellor can feel like a big step, especially if this is the first time you've done it. Perhaps you feel like you’re worrying more than usual at the moment? Or maybe there is a specific issue on your mind that you can't seem to get past. Perhaps you've had enough of feeling anxious, or you're feeling low and 'stuck'. When we have the opportunity to share how we feel in a safe, confidential environment it can help us to develop a toolkit of coping strategies to deal with times when things get tough.

I also have significant experience working with people who have experienced trauma (and may have a PTSD diagnosis) and may have been given a personality disorder diagnosis. In addition to using EMDR I am also trained in DBT and schema therapy so tend to use a combined approach tailored to the needs of the individual.

There are times in life that can feel complicated, difficult and too overwhelming to deal with on your own. You may be struggling with feelings of burnout, or a heaviness you’re not fully sure how to explain. Perhaps you’re noticing difficulties in your relationships or are struggling with an ending such as separation or bereavement. Maybe you have noticed yourself worrying more than usual and you are experiencing low mood or anxiety. It may be that you have recognised a specific issue that you would like to explore more or you may have experienced a trauma that you feel unable to move past and would like support to work through it.

Sometimes life can throw up unexpected challenges and we find that things that wouldn't normally bother us do. You may find yourself stuck, and unable to move forward; to make the change you so badly desire. It may be that you find yourself feeling anxious, depressed or stressed leaving you constantly worrying and struggling to sleep. Perhaps, you are having problems at work or in your relationships, or maybe you have suffered at the hands of others which impacts on your emotions and behaviours now. If any of this resonates with you, counselling can help develop the self-awareness you need and give you the tools to move you forward.

We all experience different challenges at different times throughout our lives. This can be overwhelming and sometimes hard to process alone. Counselling is a safe place to explore life events and the emotions, thoughts and behaviour they bring with them, in a non-judgmental and confidential environment. Together we can unearth the way you want to think, feel or act; your future goal, and as a team we can work towards achieving autonomy. Through the supportive and empathic working space I provide, on a one to one basis, we can address issues past and present and uncover useful coping mechanisms to embrace challenges old and new.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Wakefield psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
