Counsellor Kay Bingham
Life is full of trials, tribulations and trauma. None of us escape unscathed, even those of us who may outwardly appear to have the 'perfect' life. We all experience pain and hurt, it's part of being human.
Talking with someone who gets it makes a tremendous difference. You do not have to hide away any aspect with me as I work with all of your experiences. I will sit with you in your distress and discomfort, and am passionate about helping you with your healing process and growth.
For over twenty-five years, I have had the privilege of working with children, young people and adults, who have experienced more than their fair share of life's challenges, from warfare, neglect, sexual abuse, abandonment, serious illness, physical abuse, bereavement, domestic abuse, criminality, poverty, separation, rape, and drug and alcohol abuse, to name a few. I have been, and continue to be astounded by individuals and how they do the best they can to survive such horrific experiences. I have always been honoured by the trust placed in me, to hear and witness their experiences, and to allow me to help support them to live life more fully.
I studied in humanistic theories at the University of Nottingham and qualified with a first class honours degree. I have a love of learning and have attended vast training throughout my working life, and continue to do so. As well as professional development courses, I am now studying for a Masters Degree in Trauma Informed Practice. I am an accredited member with the National Counselling Society and adhere to their ethical framework and codes of conduct. I am fully insured and also hold a full and current enhanced DBS. Full details are available on request, so please ask to view. It’s important that you trust your therapist and can obtain proof of their claims so you are confident you have the right therapist for you, then you are free to concentrate on working towards living your best life. I look forward to working with you.
