Krystal Joseph Psychodynamic psychotherapist , CR5
I understand how difficult it can be when looking for the right Counsellor. It is therefore my aim to provide a safe, supportive space in which you can explore, and connect with your true self. I am passionate about enabling you to develop the internal resources to cope with the stressors that life can bring. I use a Psychodynamic approach to counselling, which means I will draw on your childhood and past experiences to help you to raise self-awareness and understanding of the influence your past can have on your present behaviour, relationships and thought patterns.
I also use a Transcultural approach to therapy, which means I am willing to understand and work with your different or similar cultural experiences and belief systems. Transcultural Psychotherapy is a form of Psychodynamic Therapy which stresses cultural awareness and sensitivity. I understand that counselling can bring up difficult feelings, and recognise the importance of developing a trusting relationship with you so that you feel seen and heard.
I have a range of experience working therapeutically with adolescence, as a Counsellor with Place2be, and with adults at Sutton Counselling. I have gained exposure to individuals going through a variety of challenges such as; anxiety, depression, sex and relationship issues, addiction, and anger. I have a passion for supporting women, this is displayed in my experience working with women who have experienced domestic abuse, at Woman’s Trust, and vulnerable women during my time at the Maya Centre.
It is my mission to make Counselling accessible to men and women who are not usually able to access quality Counselling services, or who may not have the time, or the resources to attend traditional therapy. Offering online video Counselling, as well as traditional face to face Counselling, allows me the opportunity to provide convenient, affordable and accessible therapeutic support to those who need it.
Finally, I have a special interest in supporting individuals through challenging life transitions. It is my understanding that as you enter my therapy room you may be experiencing a loss of some kind; whatever stage of life you are in.
Feel free to contact me for further information on my sessions, or visit my website: www.krystalkimberlycounselling.com.
I look forward to hearing from you.
