Halcyon Counselling

West Yorkshire

Hi I’m Kristian, a Person Centred Counsellor. I offer face to face, telephone or online Counselling. I work from a warm and friendly Counselling practice in Wakefield city centre with free parking onsite and good links to local public transport. I can also offer Telephone or online counselling. This allows you to access therapy from the comfort of your home or another suitable space. This can be at a time of your choosing, allowing your counselling to remain anonymous and you don't have to travel to meet me. You can access counselling with me from anywhere, all you need is you and a phone or computer. Life can be busy and that it can place high demands upon us. We can end up feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or find ourselves feeling lost. We may not know why we feel this way. I aim to help you connect with yourself again, to make sense of your thoughts and feelings. I aim to meet you as a human being and importantly as a 'real' person. I’m not interested in judging you, I accept you as I find you. I aim to offer you a place where you can come and talk to an open minded person, who is interested in you and what brings you to counselling. I aim to be alongside you, as you explore your reason(s) for coming to therapy. If you feel I'm the right counsellor for you, contact me via phone or email.

What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy seeing people change as they go through therapy, being present with them as they uncover new insights. It can be real pleasure to see clients make sense of their thoughts and feelings, making new links to their behaviours and interactions with others. I would say that most of all its seeing them smile again, seeing them grow to accept themselves more and to see them grow kinder, more understanding of themselves (and others) . This is the stuff therapy is made of, ultimately its seeing someones overall situation improve for the better.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired by a number of things to be honest. I have spent about 15 years working in 'helping professions' with both adults and children, having worked for a number of different organisations. I decided that I would like greater personal freedom to pursue my interest in therapy and providing counselling to individuals. I met a group of like minded people whilst training as a counsellor and we soon realised we shared similar values and ideas. We set up a counselling collective, where we share ideas and resources with an aim to improve the lives of others through therapy.

Why should our clients choose you?

I aim to provide a relationship where people can explore their thoughts and feelings, helping them make sense of them. I offer this without the judgements that we often encounter in our day to day lives. I accept people for who they are, as I find them and aim to let them decide which direction their counselling takes them.

I don't see myself as there to tell people what they should do but I believe it is they themselves that know what is best for them. I will be there alongside them as they explore their reason(s) for entering counselling. I offer counselling either face to face, online or via telephone, it is up the individual to decide how they access counselling.

I aim to provide reassurance of a confidential and professional service to clients who are accessing counselling. I have undertaken relevant training, holding a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a member of the BACP.

Counselling FAQs

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
