Welcome to

Counselling with Krissy

A solution-focused approach to the challenges in your life.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Counselling with Krissy.

Is stress or anxiety holding you back, making you irritable and stopping you from being the person you want to be?

Are thoughts about the past or concerns about the future overwhelming you? Is life getting on top of you or are you feeling low?

We can work together to equip you with tools you can use in the here and now as well as exploring the root cause of what's holding you back.

I can work with you to:

Stress and Anxiety Counselling

Help cope with the demands of work and home life

Process the painful past so that you can focus on enjoying the present

Help you to say "no" so you have time for yourself

Build your self-esteem

Be less short-tempered

Prioritise the things that really matter to you

Explore self-care

Equip you with tools that you can use now and in the future

When you are a busy person it can feel difficult to fit in one more thing, but continuing to "push through" can be counterproductive, leading to high blood pressure and burnout. Engaging with a counsellor can help you to create space to process the past, find some calm in the here and now and learn coping techniques for the future.

I work face-to-face from offices in Lisburn, County Antrim. My therapy room is located a short distance from the motorway, making it easy to access from the greater Belfast area. I also offer online therapy, saving you the time and costs involved with travelling to sessions. I have flexible appointment times including early morning, afternoon and evening slots to fit around your current commitments.

I am a fully qualified integrative therapist/counsellor, so I blend a range of approaches (person-centred, CBT and psychodynamic) to offer therapy that helps to get the best results for you. I am registered with the BACP and the ACC.

My therapy room is based in Northern Ireland but I provide counselling all across the UK and Ireland from Bristol to Belfast, Hillsborough to the Highlands of Scotland, Cork to County Antrim.

What is stress?

Stress is a natural response to a difficult situation. Small amounts of stress are healthy and can help us to achieve our goals, but too much stress can impact us negatively, causing us psychological and physical problems.

Stress can look like....


Muscle tension

Difficulty sleeping

Feeling overwhelmed

Change in eating habits

Difficulty concentrating

Restlessness or finding it hard to relax

Feeling anxious or worrying



What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a feeling of unease like fear, dread or worry. It is normal to feel some anxiety during stressful situations or changes, but it can become a problem if these feelings persist or if you are feeling this way despite there being no obvious triggers.

Anxiety can look like...

Frequent “What if?” thoughts



Racing heart

Avoiding certain situations

Difficulty sleeping



Feelings of dread

Excessive worry

Digestive issues

Faster breathing


How much does therapy cost and how often does it take place?

Sessions typically take place once a week and cost £50 for a 50-minute session.

What do I need to be able to do counselling online?

You will need a laptop, computer or tablet with a camera and a microphone and a stable internet connection. It is essential that you are in a private space where you won’t be interrupted or overheard during the sessions.

What is important for therapy to work?

The relationship between the client and the counsellor is most important for therapy to be effective.

With that in mind, I prioritise being a “good fit” for you. Do you want to be challenged or have space to reflect? Do you want to work towards specific goals or to explore what’s going on for you? Not sure? That’s okay! We can find out together what works best for you.

Do you work face-to-face as well as online?

Yes, I use offices located in Vic Ryn, just off the Moira Road in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, to see clients who prefer to meet face-to-face.
