Katherine Justesen BA Adv Dip.(Couns) MBACP (accred)
What do you want to change? How do you want things to be different? Together we can work towards helping you through your difficulties and finding a new way to cope with, and think about life.
In the safe, comfortable and confidential environment I offer, you can be free to explore your problems and establish a better way forward.
I work in an integrative way, which means that I use theory and techniques from different schools of counselling to form a unique way of working with each client. My way of working tries to ensure that the therapy fits the client, not the other way round.
I believe that central to all counselling is the relationship between the client and therapist, and this is the basis of our work together.
I also believe that our past can affect our present, so along with looking at issues in the here and now I also work with matters from childhood.
I am a member of the BACP and work to the BACP Ethical Framework and am committed to providing an ethical counselling practice.
