I’m Kristina

I am a BACP registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering face to face, online, and phone sessions.

I am working in partnership with a private GP, at 418 Wellbeing clinic in the city of Derby. Whilst I work with a variety of presenting issues, such as anxiety and depression, among others, my particular interests are in eating disorders.

Therapy can be very daunting - whether you had successful therapy that ran its course, bad therapy where you felt not listened to or perhaps even hurt, or if you have never had any therapy before, starting with someone new can be very difficult and anxiety provoking. I created this section to tell you a little bit about what you might expect from our sessions and I hope this helps to put your mind at ease.

A little bit about the therapy

“I want to thank you for helping me get in a much happier and better place than when I first came to see you. I was very wary about therapy at first but you have been really easy to talk to, understanding and helpful. I have always felt comfortable from the off and were easy to trust with my problems.”

Client testimonials

“Kristina always did her best to accommodate me and my busy schedule, - having two children I needed to change some sessions and she was always trying her best to accommodate this. She made me feel at ease from the very beginning and I am very thankful for all the help that I received from her.”

Female client in her 30ies.

“I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you Kristina and let you know that the sessions that we have had have helped me tremendously; I find myself in a situation and a head space which I would have deemed impossible before the start of this process. I want to thank you for your time, promptness and availability to accommodate me and I cannot say enough positive comments about you and how fantastic you have been. You have been patient, kind and guided me through this process and helped me understand myself and my situation more than I could have ever anticipated.”

“Kristina, thank you for showing me how kind people can be. You helped me uncover so much about myself. I will look back on our sessions with great fondness and gratitude.

Female client in her 20ies.

“I just wanted to take some time again to thank you so much for being there for me within these past few months. It has been very tough for me but having you be there for me genuinely helped and I really do appreciate it. You have shown me that there are good people in this world and you’ve shown me how real friends should treat me. You also made me feel like a friend, and even in my worst times you made me feel appreciated and loved, and that is how people should really be treated. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know you as a person and I genuinely wouldn’t have been able to get through everything without you.
