Kate Dalton Member BACP (Accred)
I am an experienced and BACP Accredited therapist working with adults, children and families in the Salisbury area. I offer both short term counselling and longer term/open ended therapy adjusting to your needs and preferences. The therapeutic relationship is key to your outcome so come along for an initial meeting to discover if I’m the right therapist for you. The work that we will do together aims to develop personal awareness, effect healing and to enable healthy change in your life.
Life can often get complicated or feel more challenging at times and having an opportunity to talk in a confidential and accepting environment can help you to find resolution. I can help and support you with a wide range of issues such as loss, relationships, self-esteem, personal development, stress and anxiety. My specialist areas are the impact of addiction in the family, managing illness and child counselling.
My approach has been influenced by a range of models of counselling. I began from a psychodynamic base, which seeks to explore the influence of early experience on present day life. Additional training in Attachment Theory (an understanding of early development), Family Systemic Theory (how we adapt and change to the environments we live in) and Transactional Analysis (exploring the dynamics between people) have enriched and developed my practice.
I am also currently training in personal coaching and able to offer this service to clients at a reduced cost.
