Ms Kelly Mesut
- Registered With N/A
Sometimes we just need space to talk and to be heard. Sometimes we feel the need to work through life experiences that may be preventing us from moving forward in the way that we’d like to. I believe that as people we are complex and issues can interrelate, so I choose not to confine my practice to certain areas of counselling. I will work with you for either short-term or long-term therapy, according to what you need.
I combine Counselling, Psychotherapy, Yoga, Reiki, Coaching and exercise to support my clients’ transformation and overall wellness. My therapeutic approach is integrative, working with clients to provide a safe and supportive space where they can explore the challenges, life circumstances and emotions that have led them to therapy or in search of personal growth. My approach draws on the various counselling theories I've studied, including person-centred, psychodynamic and humanistic, but really it is the individual counselling relationship itself that drives the work.
Area of Expertise:-
I have a BSc Psychology Degree and a BTEC Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I've also studied Reiki to Level 2 and have a great interest in holistic health: I am an accredited health and nutrition life coach and mentor clients as part of a healthy living programme.
