Kathryn Lock, MBACP Registered Counsellor
Hi, I’m Kath.
It can be good to talk to someone and that someone can always be a counsellor. Whether you have had counselling before or not, it’s designed to be helpful to you. Counselling isn't always easy at first but with more care and compassion it can help you through all kinds of difficulties. There is no one set way of being in counselling you just bring yourself as you are. Hopefully, you will feel heard and supported and have an opportunity to explore whats going on for you. Counselling can make a difference.
Prior to starting any sessions, I would like to speak to you briefly over the phone. This will enable us to establish whether I am potentially the right counsellor for you. I offer both brief and long term work. The environment is safe and warm, based within a quiet residential area. There is space here to take a walk afterwards.
I am an experienced counsellor with a background within the NHS, voluntary sector and higher education. I have experience of counselling both young people and adults - and especially students. I have interest in resilience based training and mindfulness. I work on the weekends and occasionally one evening a week.
