Christopher Kidd 

You come to me because you desire impactive integrative, directive counselling and psychotherapy with aspects of personal coaching and mentoring. Although my approach is predominately analytical, our sessions and conversations will be filled with warmth and compassion, seeking to identify and treat the causes of symptoms, both conscious and unconscious. Such insights reduce repeated patterns of thinking and behaviours that cause depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. With a background in philosophy and linguistics we use a Socratic but person-centred approach which establishes what you want to achieve before agreeing a bespoke plan for treatment. Focus upon ASD/ADHD, narcissism and trauma. 

A broad range of modalities is offered, with a strong emphasis upon communication, and hope. Language is central to how we experience the world and ourselves, and so we examine the how the language you use is structuring your experience. Considerable experience treating narcissism and narcissistic abuse, including covert narcissism. 

 

The approach is completely non-discriminatory and non-judgemental. The context of our work is confidential and pragmatic. The active listening is abbreviated with a direct and gentle approach in which we explore the many different memories and experiences that inform your sense of self. You will receive feedback of how the transference is experienced.

Simone Polden - Hypnotherapy Partner

I graduated from Kent University with a degree in Philosophy and went on to train as a teacher, working in many settings in the UK and abroad. Having grown up with family members working in mental health, education and the law, I had a deep interest in people and in the workings of the human mind, always exploring how and why people think and behave the way they do. After working in education for almost 18 years alongside voluntary work within the community, I decided to expand on my passion for helping people by pursuing a career in Clinical Hypnotherapy. I completed further training in Rapid Transformational Therapy ® and set up my own private practice. I enjoy continually expanding my knowledge of personal development and hold certificates in Child Psychology, Psychotherapy, Hypno4Children, Equality and Diversity, and Safeguarding. I hold indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS.

My warm and compassionate nature enables me to connect with clients on a deep and meaningful level, where they can feel heard and validated within a safe and non-judgemental space. My approach is based on the belief that as humans we all have immense potential for growth, healing and happiness. I specialise in working with anxiety, confidence building and overcoming fears. I live in Margate, Kent and work online via Zoom and in person.
