About Kirsty

Hello! My name is Kirsty Crawley - van Lieshout, from Dutch-Indonesian descent, and I moved from The Netherlands to the UK in 2002. I started private practice in 2014 and love working with high functioning clients!

Yes, that is you! Overall, you function well in life, you look after your own basic and psychological needs, probably even making sure that these needs are met for others (parents, siblings, dependants, friends etc.). You know there is something more to life than just existing and you aim to live a full and meaningful life. Although sometimes it might feel like spinning plates, pushing that boulder up hill, no rest for the wicked… Therapy can help looking after you, while you look after others. Therapy can help figuring out why you do what you do, while you do not have to change this. Therapy can help to sort out the jumble in your head and heart. Therapy can help you to achieve your full potential; experiencing, learning, and integrating everything on your journey – growing into the person you are meant to be!
