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.

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.

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.

Do you feel different than other people, like nobody seems to understand you? Do you often feel like an outsider? Perhaps you have trouble standing up for yourself or speaking your truth. Do you tend to cater to other people's needs and don’t get what you need? Do people sometimes tell you that you're a loving and giving person, but you feel flawed and unlovable? Do you feel uncomfortable in social situations, fearing that people will reject you if you stand out? Do you feel depressed? Do you often feel anxious? Perhaps you often don’t know what you need or want. Are you very hard on yourself and have lots of self-critical thoughts?

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?

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.

As an Integrative and Transpersonal psychotherapist I believe that every client that I work with has an inherent capacity to achieve happiness and fulfillment regardless of circumstances or environment. The difficulties associated with living are as numerous as there are people alive today. I believe that each individual carries the seeds of future contentment in the difficulties that they face in the present. My approach to psychotherapy seeks to harness the potential for individual wholeness by creating a safe and unjudgemental space in which clients can obtain clarity on their past and present whilst shaping a sought-after and fulfilled future.
