Hi! Please note that I'm currently not taking on new clients. Apologies! I'll change this notification as soon as I have availability.
I am working online: I can offer you sessions via Skype, FaceTime, or Zoom.
How is it for you - this time of "coming out of lockdown"?
Relieved - a bit? Stressed - about how it's all ramping up? Can I offer you the reflective space you need to meet the challenges?
You know how it is...
Life can be challenging sometimes. Painful, even. You can feel so flummoxed that there must be someone to help you sort it out, to help you find a way forward. So what can I do for you?
It starts with listening. With being heard and understood. Deeply. Then we can begin to see clearly what the options are - choices, challenges, changes...
I'm Klaus Heinrich...
After graduating in Psychology in Leicester (1973), I gained a teaching qualification, taught, and later studied with the British Association of Psychotherapists (1979-82).
I've been working in Leicester and Leicestershire as an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist since 1986; accredited supervisor since 2001; life coach since 2007. I've lived in Kibworth since 2004. I've worked privately and in secondary, further and higher education. They have been great places for me to learn about diversity, different abilities, and anti-discriminatory practice.
I do my therapy/counselling/life coaching/supervision from home in Kibworth (LE8), 10 miles South East of Leicester and within easy reach (and on bus routes) from Leicester, Market Harborough, Oadby, Great Glen, Fleckney, Wigston and surrounding villages.
What I can help you with
I've worked a lot with people experiencing
Counselling or therapy gives us the chance to stop and get curious about feelings we'd rather avoid. What's this anxiety about..? What's triggered this ‘depression'? etc. From this curiousity we can develop insight and resilience.
I charge £50 per session (50 minutes) for individual work; couples work is £60 per 60 minute session.
"I am in a really good place, and feel like you have given me the tools to change my negative thought patterns, and open myself up to new feelings and experiences.
I cannot stress enough how helpful and compassionate you have been throughout this process - and I can only thank you so much."
"The masterfully simple way that you have steered me towards an inner calm / balance, greater awareness and an evolving compassion is awesome and I'm extremely grateful."
"The best technique I learned from you was the "safe place" - it allowed me to remember happier times and prove that I could get back to that. More than any techniques though was just having someone who would listen and understand how I was feeling, and accept what I was saying without always having to justify why that was the case."
"Today was immensely helpful to me feeling some serenity with the workspace. I feel more professional again and less overwhelmed with the dynamics. You also did some GREAT modelling, for me to think about in my work with clients."
“I had social anxiety regarding an upcoming teaching role. Klaus respectfully and methodically attended to my concerns and taught me how to apply EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Since this single consultation with him, there has only been one occasion wherein I needed to briefly apply the ‘tapping technique’ because I have otherwise felt confident and in control of my anxiety. This is a skill Klaus has taught me for life.”

"You've been SO supportive to me through this last year - I really don't know how I'd have got through without that!"

Love, Rage, and everything in between
Some of us feel frightened by the vulnerability that love requires of us - can we dare to be hurt, or rejected, when we reach out to another human being? Some of us are frightened of our anger - let alone our rage! We've learned/been taught that anger is bad, dangerous, wrong... and rage, well - completely off limits!
But - could we learn to look at our emotions as giving us really useful data - about who we are, what we need?
In so many ways, we try to live an edited version of ourselves, not daring to inhabit the big, scary fulness of our individual humanity. We struggle with ourselves, to keep this edited version going. If it's too far from our real selves, we get alienated, depressed, addicted, lost...
It doesn't have to be like this. We can be ourselves, with skill, kindness, and without violence to ourselves or others.
What that takes is a bit of honesty, self-awareness, courage, and effort.
It's a journey. Let me help you on the way.
Experienced counsellor/therapist, looking for supervision? Check out my supervision page.
"Klaus helped me to gain confidence in my own skills as a therapist, by using the supervisory relationship to explore how I could draw upon all aspects of my previous therapy/counselling trainings. I cannot recommend him highly enough as a knowledgeable and experienced counsellor and supervisor."
