About me

My name is Kirstan Murphy Adams, I am a registered psychotherapist with the BACP.
I support adults, children and families by providing a secure place to explore and communicate their thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Through establishing a safe and relaxed environment where you can talk about your concerns without being judged. Psychotherapy fosters self-growth and equips you with the skills to live a more fulfilling life.

Adults

I work with adults who are experiencing difficulties, such as depression, eating disorders, parent/child relationship difficulties, family breakdowns, amongst others.
I also provide life coaching, helping adults take control of their situation in areas such as relationships, careers, fitness, work-life balance and self-confidence. I specifically tailor the way I work with my clients.

Children

With children I conduct play therapy such as sand play, uses of dolls and puppets and other material to aide young clients in their ongoing therapeutic process. I work closely with parents so as to provide support and guidance towards their child.

My background

I have been practicing as a qualified Gestalt Psychotherapist for over 14 years. I am a registered member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have undertaken an enhanced disclosure check form the criminal records bureau and I am fully insured.
The majority of my clinical work has been carried out within educational settings, agencies and private practice. I believe that building a good rapport between myself and my client is the building block of a sound therapeutic relationship. To be able to share the journey with my clients is by far the most beautiful experience, albeit being painful. Each individual has his/her own potential and my aim is to guide and uncover my client's strengths. Being able to show the client his own resources will undoubtedly support his therapeutic work.
I am empathic and warm towards my clients and I firmly believe that psychotherapy provides a safe place within which the client can begin to reclaim a sense of identity and self esteem.
