Professional Profile

My name is Dr Abbie Kirkham and I am a fully qualified Chartered and HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist for Think CBT in Deal, Kent. I have over 13 years’ experience of working in the NHS and private practice with clients presenting with a range of emotional and psychological difficulties ranging from mild to moderate difficulties to more complex issues, such as people diagnosed with a personality disorder or trauma.

I have a specialist interest in working with people struggling to manage intense emotions triggered by interpersonal / relationship difficulties. I have undergone further training in Mentalisation Based Treatment, EMDR and Counselling for Depression. This enables me to approach a person’s difficulties with flexibility whilst drawing upon the most up to date evidenced based guidelines.

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties or other emotional difficulties, I am able to help you gain greater understanding and self confidence in making changes. I provide therapy in a confidential and comfortable therapy center in Walmer near Deal.

I abide by the professional and ethical standards laid down by the HCPC and BPS. I have full professional indemnity and current DBS clearance.
