Therapy with Kylie
I aim to work with individuals to help them develop lifelong skills and strategies that can be used to empower and enrich their current experiences and future life journey.
I specialise in adolescents and adults who present with a range of diagnoses including anxiety and depression. I have a special interest in supporting the mental health of people with physical disabilities. I believe that when working with adolescents the combined role of the family and the young person are pivotal in providing optimised outcomes for psychological concerns. As everyone is different, it is important for me to adopt a range of therapeutic approaches to best fit the needs of each person. I have experience and training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). Using a flexible and integrated approach means my sessions are planned and designed to best suit the unique needs of each of my clients.
