About me

Hi there, my name is Cat. Thank you for taking a look at my profile.

For the times in life when things get tough, a straight forward and friendly listening ear can be really beneficial. When it’s not always possible to chat to a friend or loved one about personal issues; this is where counselling can be really helpful.

Using a warm and down to earth style my sessions will use techniques to help discover the underlying symptoms, using a non direct approach. This will allow us to explore any issues you have, develop ways to overcome them, and move forward positively at a pace that feels right for you.

As a fully qualified counsellor  I can offer help if you suffer emotionally from problems with low self esteem, relationships, work related stress, abuse, debts, child related issues, abandonment, drug abuse and addiction, amongst many others.

I have extensive experience in the mental health field having delivered counselling sessions at The Together Women Project, and Leeds Mind where I also provide one to one mental health support in the community.

I adhere to the strict code of ethics laid out by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, so when attending a session you can be safe in the knowledge there will be no judgment, and our discussions are kept confidential.

Call me for an informal chat to see if my approach may benefit you, as I can offer sessions on a long or short term basis.
