Psychological Support
for Business Owners / 
Entrepreneurs

  • Are you feeling stressed, anxious or depressed?

  • Are you so busy looking after your customers and employees, you've forgot to look after yourself?

  • To show up consistently for others you need to show up for yourself.

The last few years have been particularly stressful.  If you are looking for someone to talk to about the stresses in your life, including work / life balance, family and career, Kirsten can help you find more effective ways of coping and managing your stress.  

Covid has changed how we work and live.  The boundaries have never been more blurred as we work from home and generally more remotely.  And yet neither work nor home lives have become less demanding.

If you are a high achiever and need help coping with a sudden change in work arrangements, lack of  motivation, or are working in a very demanding role while still dealing with the stresses at home, having a psychologist to guide you can be make all the difference.

"“We work hard together, but it's also about connection and forming an alliance.  Openness, honesty and vulnerability are the key to growth and it's my job to provide an environment where you feel safe to step into discomfort.” – Kirsten

WHY WORK WITH KIRSTEN?

With over 10 years’ experience as a Psychologist and a further 10 years working in the corporate sector, I come to the session not only as a psychologist but as a business woman, a mum and a partner and all that brings in terms of knowledge and experience. 

 

In 2021, I went on a 12-month health kick which included a break from both work and alcohol, and a focus on healthy eating and regular walks (in nature, without AirPods).  In that time, I learned that burnout is real and I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to slow down in a way that would not have been possible has it not been for Covid, to reflect and regroup and of course come back stronger.

 

I use a range of evidence-based therapies tailored to best address my client’s needs. These include cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness and of course motivational interviewing.

I have worked in several settings including schools, private practice and corporate companies. I have experience providing therapeutic support for a broad range of concerns including stress, anxiety, depression, OCD, social difficulties, career and work related problems.
