About me

Hello, I am Kate and I work in a peaceful space in the village of Ash, near Sandwich. I offer a safe environment and work in a confidential and non-judgemental manner, adhering to the ethical framework of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP); of which I am a registered member.

How can counselling help? Counselling sessions will give you the opportunity to talk about issues and problems you are facing, and help you have a better understanding of yourself and make changes where you choose to. Counselling can also help in many other ways including:

  • overcoming difficulties
  • developing your self-awareness
  • making sense of your thoughts and feelings
  • having more control in your life

What to expect in your first session: The first session will be a consultation/assessment so that we can discuss your needs and the problems you feel you would like to work through.

I offer focused short-term work and in-depth longer term therapy. Sessions are arranged for a mutually convenient time and are either weekly or fortnightly.

My training was integrative, however I work in a person-centred manner and with the flexibility to incorporate integrative approaches. I am sensitive to the needs of my clients and will work with you to address your problems in a caring manner.

As well as working in private practice I also work for an IAPT service. My previous experience includes working with teenagers and young people at an international college, and voluntary counselling for a community agency and bereavement agency. I have experience working with those suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, other mental health issues, relationship problems, trauma, loss, grief, bereavement and a range of other issues.

My location in Ash has plenty of free parking and is:

  • 3 miles from Sandwich
  • 8 miles from Deal
  • 10 miles from Canterbury
  • 8-10 miles from Ramsgate, Broadstairs, Margate and surrounding Thanet.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor having attained my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Integrative). I studied with the Counselling & Psychotherapy Training Academy (CPTA). The awarding body was the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. I am also a member of the National Counselling Society.

I have attended numerous short courses and workshops in the areas in which I work and constantly update my Continuous Professional Development (CPD) by studying and attending more courses.

I attend regular supervision.

I hold a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Certificate.

I have experience working with a wide range of problems that clients bring including stress, anxiety, depression, other mental health issues, relationship problems, trauma, loss, grief, bereavement.
