About me

Highly qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor working with adults/couples/young people and organisations. I have a degree in Humanistic Counselling and became accredited with BACP (British Association in Counselling and Psychotherapy) in 2006. I have run my own practice for a number of years and am available during the day and some evenings.

I offer both short and long term individual therapy. Short term can be six to twelve sessions and tends to focus on a particular issue. Brief therapy can show a highly successful outcome with positive changes. I have helped many people overcome their difficulties and move forward in their lives.

Longer term therapy allows a broader focus. I can help you with longstanding problems where together we can open up a space where you can make meaning of your life.

My initial consultation is free of charge which gives you a chance to find out a little about me and how I work.   I can help you with many issues such as bereavement, substance and alcohol abuse, life changes, relationships and depression.  Often many problems can stem from one main problem and I enjoy helping people understand themselves. After all, if I feel angry I need to understand why before I can manage it.

I have found that some people only need a few sessions before they feel better and my aim is to help you move forward as quickly as possible.

I have had experience of helping people, both young and old, many with serious problems. Together we can usually work through painful feelings or fears.

I also offer counselling supervision to other therapists who are welcome to contact me to find out more. www.kateharmarcounselling.co.uk

The term accreditation means an individual therapist. after gaining qualification at either Diploma, BA, or MA level, has undergone a rigorous assessment process of their work and ability to put theory into practice via case studies, evidence of a sound understanding of their governing bodies ethical framework and a substantial amount of client contact hours.

Supervision & training

Sometimes as counsellors we can feel pushed and pulled in many directions and everything feels as if it is put into question.  I work with counsellors with many different levels of experience, many working towards  a counselling qualification. I aim to enable you to value your own ideas and feelings through discussion and exploration, so you can become more confident in the way you practice.
