Kingsley is extremely good at creating a non-judgemental space where I feel safe enough to discuss uncomfortable subjects. No matter how hard our sessions can be due to subjects discussed or how emotional I become, by the end of the session he always leaves me in a capable head space. This is something I have not experienced with a therapist before. My many historical experiences with therapists have usually left me emotionally vulnerable, but Kingsley's gentle time management to prevent this is wonderful & greatly appreciated.

Kingsley is a very patient and approachable therapist, who truly listens and encourages you to seek healthy solutions to enable your healing process. He is easy to talk and open up to and has helped me gain helpful insights.

I have had two meetings with Kingsley so far and cannot wait for the third meeting. I've tried going to therapy several times and Kingsley is one of the only two I could open up to. He is empathetic and actively listens, and when he speaks he brings my attention to phrases, habits, and mindsets that I usually think of as innocuous but could turn out to be holding me back. Highly recommend.
