Therapeutic Approach 

Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy in Cumbria

I am eclectic in my approach as a transpersonal therapist and so draw on a variety of strategies to suit the needs of my clients. I provide acceptance, genuineness and empathy at all times, whilst enabling clients to search for their own resources for change. These core conditions are the foundations of effective therapy and are at the heart of all of my therapy work.


We are meant to enjoy life. To be happy and free to express ourselves creatively, to love ourselves, and to connect in a meaningful way with the world around us. For many, the ability to achieve these things is blocked by trauma, grief, loss and emotional disturbance. These blockages and limiting beliefs, though often hidden, manifest as depression, anxiety, anger, phobias, addictions and many other physical, emotional and mental health problems. 

However, we have inside of us the ability to heal, and therapy can help you to access this ability and once again reconnect with the joy of life.


During the first session, we will explore the problem and I will explain ways in which I will be able to help you. If you're happy to proceed, I can see you as often as we feel will be of benefit to you, and for as long as is productive and helpful. 


If you have any questions about my approach or therapy in general, please feel free to call me for a brief chat with no obligation. 

“Where do I start in trying to display how grateful I am for your support through my journey? You've listened and guided me like no-one else I know. Thank you so much!"
“Everything has changed! I have a life worth living and I can't thank Kris enough.”
“Thank you for all your help and support through the most difficult time. I hope I can keep on this positive road you have helped me to build.”
“Over the past two years you've changed my life and given me the strength to change my own life, too. Because of you, I'm finally becoming the person I've always wanted to be.”
“Having had nightmares for as long as I can remember...the session with Kris really worked. I now have a much deeper understanding of why I was having the nightmares, which in turn allowed me to overcome them.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Kris to help you understand your dreams and have a calmer night!”
“Thank you so much! Without your help I wouldn't be in the position I am today. You saved my life and kept my family together, and I will be forever grateful."
