Kathryn Lock, MBACP Registered Counsellor
What I offer
Whatever the reason may be, I offer you a safe, reflective and supportive space where we can explore and consider the issues that are affecting you. I will actively listen to you and understand your world and the experiences you have had. I believe you are the only expert on your life, it is you who knows what hurts and what is important to you. I offer a warm and sensitive approach, free from judgment, where you will feel accepted and understood. I believe you have within you the resources for change. We will work together to find what works best for you. Hopefully, the support will enable you to feel more self aware and have a greater sense of perspective of your current circumstances.
I'm interested in supporting clients gain a greater sense of resilience and robustness to deal with everyday life; building work, life, balance.
