Trust in Counselling & Therapies


Kirsty Bolton MSc, BA (Hons), MBACP

Life can be overwhelming and there are times when it can feel impossible to deal with the challenges it brings, leaving you feeling distressed and struggling to overcome these incredibly painful experiences on your own.

Together, we can work upon making sense of, and exploring, any issues that may be impacting your life and/or relationships within a safe, comfortable and confidential environment, at your own pace.

I am an integrative therapist, committed to developing a positive therapeutic relationship utilising the principles of person-centred care. Additionally, offering therapeutic strategies to develop further insight into your experiences, creating a tool set for you to feel empowered within your life and to aid greater clarity and belonging. Furthermore, adopting a robust self-care strategy when faced with the unfortunate adversities that life can bring.  

I have previously worked for The Carers Support Service and The Young Persons Support Service (YPSS) offering support to service users with a variety of concerns.

Research suggests that the therapeutic relationship is key to successful therapy. Feeling that you can trust and share your inner-most thoughts and feelings with your therapist is extremely important and I hope that our initial session together will help to assist you in deciding if my approach and style of counselling is the right fit for you.
