Katherine Cox, MA Psychotherapy and Counselling, BACP registered member
Hello, my name is Kat, I am a qualified psychotherapist and provide an open, empathetic and safe space to explore your experiences and difficulties. I have trained in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling (MA) and additionally incorporate ideas involving the body, relational therapy and trauma based work.
I have worked with a wide range clients who have come to understand, explore and change their lives, whether this be within themselves, within a relationship or their professional life.
By sharing your experiences, being empathetically understood and building a trusting relationship I believe you can transform how you make decisions about your life, how you view yourself and positively influence your interactions with people and the world. There is so much within us all that needs encouraging and recognising, not just changing.
Having worked as a support worker, teacher and psychotherapist and having lived and taught in both in the UK and abroad for over 10 years, I believe that change and transformation are possible through understanding our experiences, creating an openness whereby we can accept ourselves and by challenging our own assumptions about how we think life should be.
