Christine King

Christine is a Person-Centred Therapist who has additional training in Emotion Focused Therapy. She is committed to building a collaborative, facilitative and trusting relationship with clients, so that they can freely express and explore their emotions and needs.

If you are considering talking to a therapist for the first time, you may be wondering how to start and what happens during a session. You may be looking to understand yourself and your emotions better. Perhaps you may need support to make sense of the past or be experiencing difficulties in the present. Christine will offer support, helping you to begin to talk through your emotions and feelings in the present. She will look to help you make better sense of your life, yourself and your relationships.

Often we lose sight of our self when facing challenges or difficulties. To have the space to talk more openly, in a safe environment and within the context of a trusting non judgmental relationship, helps build strength so that we can start to make sense of our own experiences and feelings.

Christine offers a calm presence. Through a balance of empathy and compassion alongside supportive and timely challenge she will help you find a way through your difficulty to reach insight and clarity. This will include developing strategies and finding ways in which you can support and care for yourself, all whilst building strength and resilience so that you start to feel more positive and better about your life and choices.
