About me

Kristina Smout

MBACP (reg) FdSc Counselling and Psychotherapy (CBT)

Hello, I’m Krissy. I’m a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist, trained to a degree level in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am bound by their code of conduct, ensuring that my services are reliable and ethical.

I have experience working with a wide range of adults and young people facing a variety of challenges. Outside of my counselling role, I have many years experience in the Mental Health field, within both the charitable and public sectors, helping a large amount of people along the way.

I have worked with many issues, including; Anxiety, depression, OCD, phobias, dissociative disorder, personality disorders, attachment disorders, schizophrenia, psychosis, mood disorders, trauma, PTSD, CPTSD, abuse, low self-esteem, eating disorders, grief and loss, relationship issues, stress and work related stress, paranoia, intrusive thoughts, suicidal ideation and crisis, substance misuse, self-harm, anger and neurodiversity challenges.

I accept clients from ages 11 and up. Having recently worked on projects supporting young people who's mental health have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become my mission to help as many young people as possible to develop confidence and resilience in this new normal. For this reason, I offer reduced rates to young people aged between 11-30.

I understand how daunting it can be searching for a therapist to share your deepest fears and worries with. I can assure you that you will be treated with respect, understanding and kindness.
