My name is Kieran Mountney and I am a counsellor providing both short and long-term therapy to adult and young individuals in Camborne, Cornwall. I also offer counselling by telephone or online, using Skype and Zoom.
We all experience times of difficulty in our lives, when events or relationships feel overwhelming, or we can feel a loss of direction or purpose. Talking to a trained professional helps us make sense of those challenging times and offers a way through them, moving towards a better understanding of ourselves and our feelings.
One of the main bodies overseeing the registration of counsellors in the United Kingdom is the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a Member of the BACP, which means I have met their criteria for qualified and experienced therapists and work in accordance with their ethical framework.
Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with a professional like me who will listen with sensitivity and empathy – and without judgement.
In the therapy space, your thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence. This is your space to express yourself without fear.
Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression; anger issues or grief – many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems – and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.
By working together, we can make positive changes in your life that help you be the person you want to be.
Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.
I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.
My approach to therapy is a person-centred one. This is a non-judgmental way of working, where the counsellor creates the right conditions to help someone increase their self-awareness; to move towards – and reach – their fullest potential.
People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:
Feelings of stress or anxiety
Grief, loss or bereavement
Problems with addiction
Trauma and post-traumatic stress
I work from private offices located in Camborne, and see clients from across Cornwall, including Truro, Redruth, Newquay, Falmouth, Hayle, Helston and Penzance.
In addition to providing face-to-face therapy, I also offer telephone counselling and online sessions for clients in the South West area and beyond via Zoom or Skype. Contact me to find out more about how online therapy works.
