Kate Meadowcroft MA (UKCP and HCPC reg.)
537 Norwood Road
90 Limpsfield Road
I am a qualified integrative arts psychotherapist and this means that I support clients in the use of a wide variety of arts based and creative thinking tools to explore and transform life difficulties and issues. I provide one to one sessions in private therapy rooms in South London.
‘What can I expect?
As well as talking at depth, I will encourage you to use relaxing and accessible creative methods to express thoughts and feelings, especially those that are hard to put into words. Techniques include; mind maps, doodling, image making, sandtray, dream work, guided visualisation, role play and more. Activities are agreed together and targeted to suit your preferences and aims in seeking therapy. It is not necessary to have formal art skills to benefit.
I am available for short-term solution-focused therapy (6 to 12 sessions) or open-ended psychotherapy depending on goals and issues.
Issues I work with:
I have a particular interest in working with traumatic stress, anxiety, panic attacks, compulsions, bereavement and loss.
I work in line with HCPC and UKCP codes of practice including confidentiality, equality and serving the best interests of each client.
Sessions last 50 minutes and normally take place weekly at a regular time.
What’s the next step?
Please feel welcome to get in touch by email or phone for an initial chat about what you are looking for.
The next step is to arrange an initial face to face appointment after which you can decide whether you would like us to work together.
