My Services:

Hello and thank you for visiting this site.  Whoever and wherever you are, I offer you a safe and welcoming service designed around you and the issues you wish to explore. My name is Susan Kinder.  I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor.  I have spent many years working in the NHS as a Mental Health Therapist, Counselling Service Manager, Staff Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor.  I have also worked for West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service delivering Workplace Counselling to its fire fighters and civilian staff. I am a Registered Member MBACP (Accred). My therapy style is integrative, which means that I incorporate a variety of theoretical bases and approaches to help you to benefit from our work together.  These approaches include Psycho-dynamic (using Atachment theory and Object Relations theory), Humanistic theories, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Here are some of the services I can provide:  one-to-one work in the counselling room; face-to-face work online; and in the field, work with the assistance of horses. I work with individuals, couples, young people and groups, and contract with corporate clients and EAPs to provide services for employees.  I also provide consultative support to experienced and trainee supervisees. I work in Keighley and the surrounding area. If you contact me, our first meeting would be for an initial assessment session of one hour.  This is so that you and I can decide whether we want to work together, and what form our work will take.  If we do decide to work together we will usually meet for one hour per week until we have accomplished your goals. BUPA, Aviva, AXA PPP clients welcome.  Where fees are paid through your insurer please be aware there may be an excess which you will need to pay directly to LifeSupport.    

Training, qualifications and experience:

I have an MA in Counselling, am a registered Relate Practitioner and Supervisor, I studied CBT at the University of York, and am accredited by BSCP (Tavistock) to practice and supervise IAPT Couple Therapy for Depression.  I am also a qualified practitioner in Equine Facilitated Learning and Equine Assisted Therapy. I hold an enhanced DBS and my work is fully insured.
