About me

I am a trauma and cancer survivor with 50 years of diverse life experience. My work background is in Motivational Teaching, Wellbeing & TV Journalism. I came to Counselling & Psychotherapy training with a passion for empowering others and alleviating symptoms of distress.

Feeling anxious or depressed?

Perhaps you are disillusioned with life in general…or maybe you are tired of holding onto negative self-beliefs and are wanting to create

What kind of people do I work with?

I have worked with a wide range of international clients from varied social backgrounds. My clients include   professionals, refugees, victims of abuse and domestic violence, senior statesmen and those with financial, career and relationship challenges.

' Kate's clients seem to engage quickly with her and stay the course making significant changes'                                  

My philosophy ...

I strongly believe that we all have the potential for growth - whatever our experience. I am committed to facilitating that growth. Starting a therapeutic relationship takes courage and commitment and can be daunting. However, it will be life changing. If you would like to feel your life's potential - I very much look forward to working with you.

What to expect when you come to counselling..

So how does it work?

After an initial phone call or email from you - we will agree a place and time to meet for an initial consultation. This will last for one hour in one of my comfortable and quiet consulting rooms. It will be completely confidential. I will give you clear directions on how to find me. There is also a map on this site to help you.

How many sessions might you need?

In our first meeting, you will hopefully get an idea on whether you might be able to work with me, to achieve your goals in a therapeutic relationship. After this initial assessment of each other, we will then agree on how many sessions you would like to commit to. Usually we would meet weekly on the same day and time. Some people only need 10-12 sessions of counselling, in order to achieve their goals or to alleviate their symptoms. Others may need and prefer to stay in counselling & psychotherapy for much longer.

How do I work with you?

I offer an integrative approach in the counselling room. This means I draw on different psychotherapeutic theories. I also use empathic confrontation, humour and compassion with my clients. I tailor my therapy style by attuning to your needs. I strive to create a space where the relational aspect of my work is at the forefront of our session. We would work collaboratively at your pace - building new awareness around the issues you are faced with.

How do you pay for Counselling?
We will agree my fee prior to the first consultation. I take payment at the beginning of our weekly counselling sessions. You can pay in cash or by cheque. Regretfully I do not take credit cards.

    Testimonials from previous clients...

    'I would particularly like to thank my counsellor who was called Kate. She was very perceptive
    about my needs and personality and what I needed from the process….She really helped me to
    change my perception and stop blaming myself.'

    ''..Counselling helped me face what happened to me and see it in a whole new perspective.I
      was able to break through a wall of silence and face something I was frightened of. Without it
      I would still be stuck in the same place I had been all those years.'
