“The relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have”

– Jane Travis

My name is Keziah and I’m a qualified integrative counsellor and registered member of the BACP. Based in Barnes, I offer supportive therapy to both adults and children experiencing emotional difficulty.

I offer a non judgemental, safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and make sense of your experiences. Sessions are carefully tailored to your needs and delivered at a pace that’s right for you.

I work using an Integrative approach to counselling. This not only allows me to draw on different theoretical models and adapt my approach to suit the needs of each individual, but also be more versatile in my approach in meeting the emotional needs and world views of those from different cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds.

How Can Therapy Help Me?

Most people at some point in their lives and for various personal reasons experience periods of difficulty. It’s easier than ever to get lost and consumed in the day to day stresses of life and often our focus is on everyone else but ourselves. Life can feel overwhelming and during these times we can feel confused, anxious, lonely and trapped.

Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space where time is dedicated just for you. I aim to provide a nurturing space in which change, healing and growth can occur. Whether you’re experiencing emotional difficulty, anxiety, stress or low mood, struggling to cope with change or just need someone to talk to, you don’t have to face these feelings alone.

I view therapy as a collaborative process in which we focus on your unique goals, values, and needs and where your thoughts, feeling and experiences will be welcomed and accepted.

I will work with you to help you explore your thoughts and feelings and work through any challenges you are facing with empathy and professional understanding.

I have experience working successfully with clients in areas including low mood, low self esteem and confidence, stress, anxiety, trauma, codependency, loss and grief, perinatal mental health and domestic abuse. I work with individuals to:

  • Identify how past experiences can affect present behaviours and responses
  • Explore and express difficult emotions to others
  • Explore and make sense of personal experiences
  • Identify solutions
  • Find an authentic voice through self discovery
  • Identify unhealthy patterns of relating to self and others
  • Explore losses and identify ways to cope more effectively
  • Form more meaningful relationships with self and others
  • Identify personal needs and self care

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us.” David Richo


We are all unique individuals and many of our personal experiences contribute to how we relate to the world, ourselves and others.

I use various methods to help clients explore their thoughts and feelings, tailored to the individual. This can include play therapy, talk therapy, and using art as a form of expression.


Play Therapy is based upon the fact that play is a child’s natural medium of self-expression and communication.
Play therapy can help children to play out their feelings and tell their story.

When working with children, I use a range of art and play therapy activities which can be used as an expressive and creative outlet for children helping them to access those feelings that have no words.

This form of therapy can be used as a way to relate to the child’s understanding of the world and help them develop a better understanding of their experiences and feelings.

“Inside every child, there is a story that needs to be told” Winnicott

Tweens and Teens

Many young people today are struggling with the way they feel. Some young adults may develop a range of emotional difficulties leaving them feeling unable to cope. It can sometimes be difficult for young people to express how they feel to someone they know. Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space to explore their thoughts and feelings and make sense of their experiences without judgement.

I work with young adults to explore a range of issues including: social and academic pressures, relationship and friendship issues, social anxieties, peer pressure and low self esteem.

I work by providing emotional support to help them identify and develop strategies for coping and enhance their mental wellbeing.


Feeling overwhelmed, low or anxious? You don’t have to face feeling this way alone.

Whatever it is that you might be going through, talking through difficult emotions can help us to recognise unhelpful patterns of relating and identify the effects of past experiences.

I will support you to explore your thoughts and feelings and explore new ways of thinking, behaving and relating at a pace that feels right for you.

When we are better able to understand ourselves, our actions, reactions and how we relate to the world and others, it becomes possible to regain a sense of control promoting emotional wellbeing and recovery.
