A little something about me

Kirsty Walker

Hi, I'm Kirsty.

S

ince 2008, I have been working as a professional counsellor in the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire area, helping individuals and couples to navigate through various challenges in their lives. I am a fully accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, which means that I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework, ensuring that my clients receive the highest standards of care during our counselling sessions. I am also a certified professional member of ACTO allowing me to work online with clients.

My journey as a therapist began in 2007 when I started studying for my counselling qualification while working as a group work officer in a secure unit within the NHS. During this time, I gained valuable experience working with men who had dangerous and severe personality disorders, which helped me to build a solid foundation as a therapist. I also took on counselling placements as a trainee counsellor, where I worked with a diverse range of client groups, including young people in schools and colleges, adult clients in GP environments, and clients in a counselling service. Throughout my training, I studied a variety of psychological theories, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, and Person-Centered, which I use with my clients during counselling sessions. In 2010, after completing my training, I established my own counselling practice, Morgan Walker Counselling, where I provide online counselling services to clients in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. I have worked with many different client issues, such as relationship and family problems, life changes, domestic violence and sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, and loss and grief. For me, being a counsellor is about providing a safe space for my clients to explore their thoughts and feelings, without fear of judgement. It is about helping them to feel heard and understood, and giving them the support and respect they need to make positive changes in their lives. I strongly believe that giving yourself to another person in a therapeutic manner can evoke change in the relationship and help to begin a personal journey of healing and growth.
