Hello, My name is Kate and I am a qualified BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist of 14 years.
My private practice is in Southbourne where I offer warm and empathic therapy to help people make significant changes in personal growth and self development. As a qualified therapist, I offer support for the many challenges in life. The pace of life can be difficult for some of us. Separation and divorce can stop us in our tracks and it can be difficult to focus on our daily lives. Contact is an issue for many with difficulties in agreeing what's best for your child. I can help you with this from my experience in working with parents and children.
Making changes can be difficult, but feel reassured that we can work together to look at your unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns. We can do this over a period of time to help you understand yourself or others in many different ways.
Depression and Anxiety can be a debilitating conditions which prevent us from taking part in many areas of our life. We can look at these conditions with a variety of treatments e.g. CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Person-Centred. Changing the way we think for many years can be liberating and give us a different perspective in life. We can discuss this in the assessment process which is offered free of charge for 30 minutes.
As well as studying many therapies, my counselling is grounded in Person-Centred approach where I believe that people possess the capacity for healing themselves and growth if given the therapeutic environment and support they need.
I look forward to hearing from you.
