My name is Kelly Porch and I would love to work with you to help you with whatever it is that is troubling you right now. 

I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor with a lot of experience. I am based in Kettering, Northamptonshire and I offer appointments both during the daytime and evening.  Unlike some agencies and organisations, counselling with me is not time-limited or restricted to a specific number of sessions - you can have as many as you want or need. 

I provide person-centred counselling which is a popular form of counselling in the UK. This type of counselling puts you in control - I won't tell you what we should talk about or assume I know more about you than you know about yourself (you just might not know that yet!). We will work together to help you to identify what you would like to change and how you might be able to do that. 

As well as helping people with all of the above issues and concerns, I also have a specialist interest in helping those who have a chronic health issue or chronic pain. Click here for more information.

I am easily accessible from all of the surrounding areas to Kettering, such as Wellingborough, Corby, Northampton and Market Harborough, as I am work in a location very close to the A14 and walking distance from Kettering Railway Station.

AT PRESENT, DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC,  I AM WORKING USING THE ONLINE PLATFORM ZOOM OR VIA TELEPHONE. I AM EXPERIENCED IN DELIVERING ONLINE COUNSELLING AND IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT COUNSELLING ONLINE, I AM HAPPY TO HAVE A CHAT ABOUT WHAT THIS ENTAILS BEFORE ANY COMMITMENT IS MADE.
