Kirstie is a registered member of BACP. She is a former trustee of COSRT. She previously represented COSRT on the national Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy group. She has undertaken further specialist training with Pink Therapy to work with sexual and gender diversity, an area of therapy which is of particular importance to her in relation to her own life experience.

Kirstie is a core faculty member of the Diploma in Clinical Sexology offered by the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology where she teaches Gender and Sexual Diversity.

In addition to being a general therapist she is a qualified Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist.

Kirstie utilises an Integrative approach, drawing on her awareness of various therapeutic modalities and adapting these to suit the individual client’s need. She works with individuals and couples whatever their sexuality or gender.

Kirstie is registered with Pink Therapy and has undertaken additional training in working with the essentials of gender and sexual diversity.  She has personal and comprehensive knowledge of the transgender community and is aware that transgendered people deal with the same day-to-day problems as everyone else irrespective of their specific transgender needs. She is also aware of the issues that family and friends of transgendered people face and believes that her own experience in this area will be of benefit to others.
