About me

Sometimes, talking to friends, a partner, or other family members doesn't feel appropriate, helpful or enough.

Coping with a new baby or a new job; a bereavement or relationship problem; excessive drinking or eating; or simply struggling to live a balanced and fulfilled life, can all be helped through gaining a clearer understanding of ourselves, enabling us to make informed and positive choices.

By bringing a combination of counselling and coaching approaches to my practice, I am able to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your experiences, feelings and thoughts and find a path towards living a happier, more fulfilled life.

Being able to express yourself openly without fear of being judged can be a liberating and reparative experience, enabling you to move forward and feel strong again.

You may have specific goals you are seeking to achieve. I can work with you to develop self-understanding and to explore your options. Whilst acting as your sounding board, I will also ask questions aimed at helping you clarify your thinking, enabling you to progress with confidence and focus.

I have over 15 years executive coaching experience,  in addition to several years experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist within private practice and NGO’s,

In addition to seeing clients on a private basis, for the past 5 years I have been working as a counsellor at Turning Point (previously, Swindon & Wiltshire Alcohol & Drug Services) – providing psychological therapy for individuals struggling with mental health issues and substance misuse.

Prior to practicing as a therapist, I held several board level positions as an HR professional in some of the most successful global technology companies.

Location: I work out of The Practice Rooms in Salisbury, view by clicking link below: http://www.thepracticerooms.co.uk/therapist/kathy-cotter/

Contact: Feel free to call or email to arrange an initial session where we can explore what has brought you to seek support, and whether I am the right therapist for you.
