Kirsten Hammond - Counselling
Kirsten Hammond BCAP

I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor registered with the British Association of Counselling practitioners (MBACP).

I offer counselling for adults (18yrs +). My private practice is based in Lewes, East Sussex.

I have worked for a number of years providing counselling for carers and people experiencing loss through bereavement. I currently work as a counsellor in schools and colleges within Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.

My Approach

I trained as a humanistic counsellor at Brighton University and in Person-Centred counselling at East Sussex College.

My approach respects, acknowledges and welcomes the unique individual. With support and guidance, I believe you have the ability to create the changes you need.

I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space and believe lasting change occurs when you find your own answers or solutions. My approach is to help you make choices and decisions that align with your values in the belief that beneath the confusion you can come to your own decisions and gain a greater sense of self.

If you are travelling on an old road leading to the same destination I can support you on a journey towards something new.

This new awareness can lead to the path of lasting change.

I adhere to the BACP ethical guidelines for practice ( guidelines can be found here ), and I am fully insured for all therapeutic work.
