Hello and welcome

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.

Speak in confidence

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.



A problem shared...

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.

Make healthier choices

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.

How can counselling help you?

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

Panic attacks

Relationship problems

Grief, loss or bereavement

Problems with addiction

Trauma and post-traumatic stress

Abuse

Depression

Problems with confidence or self-esteem

Anger management

Issues relating to sexuality

Difficulties at work or in retirement

Problems with family or school life

Guilt or shame

Testimonials

All names have been changed to maintain confidentiality

"I got in touch with Kieran after years of struggling with low self esteem. As soon as we began speaking, I really felt heard and realised my problems did deserve to be fixed and I deserved to feel better about myself. I began to see changes in myself quickly. Kieran is very patient and calm.

I would definitely recommend Kieran. Thank you!"

Alexander

"After my time with Kieran, I feel like a new man. I am feeling more confident and that life is worth living for the first time in a long while.

If you are struggling and need a place to talk, I would recommend Kieran wholeheartedly."

John

"I felt very lost and in quite a bad place when I first began working with Kieran. After I started seeing him for a few weeks, life began to get a little clearer and easier. I began to see the changes I needed to make in my life.

Now, I have a happy smile on my face and while life isn't always Roses, I feel Kieran has helped give me the strength to face life."

Julia

"What better a testimony can be given than the improvement Kieran has wrought in me? I won't say he's cured all my ills yet when he asked me to write this I told him it would be an honour.

I have been seeing Kieran for many months and though some days have been tough I can honesty say I've felt more comfortable in myself. He has given me a greater understanding of my emotions and continues to guide me and give that little extra strength I need when things get rocky with truths I need to hear.

I find Kieran easy to talk to, putting me in safe place to explore my feelings.

When I think about it I fondly remember the first time I met with Kieran saying "I don't want to talk about my childhood" as I'd been there so many times yet he showed me that was the root from which weeds grow. I also truly believe we could sit down over a pint outside of our chats and put the world's to right especially as we now have a shared interest."

Richard

"Kieran helped me a great deal in 2019 to really see things from different perspectives and appreciated things from the points of view of others. He is a fantastic listener and really made me feel comfortable. Kieran made it very clear that the time we had was "my time".

I really feel that without the care, support and guidance I received from Kieran that my life would still be in turmoil.

Kieran is a genuinely nice guy and a really skilled therapist, who I would recommend to anyone."

Michael

"Friendly, helpful! Professional, too. Thank you. It was my first time seeing a therapist so I’m generally enthralled and think everyone could benefit from this! I'd recommend Kieran very highly."
