Counsellor, Psychotherapist, and Supervisor MBACP, UKCP

About me

Hello, I'm Cathie. Thanks for spending time looking at my advert. Whatever troubles have brought you, I aim to assist in a way that provides ease, and helps you to live your life in a more satisfying way. There's more information about me and how I work on my website above.

I'm a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and a supervisor to other therapists and clinical practitioners. UKCP accredited, and a registered member of BACP.  I've been a therapist some 18+ years, within the NHS, social services, business, universities and specialist counselling agencies. Mainly in Devon, but more recently moving between Devon, and Glasgow - where I was born and bred. Currently, alongside my private practice I manage a team of psychological therapists in a large Glasgow University. I'm working face to face, in Devon, and also online via Skype and Zoom. 

Committed to offering therapy in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, I have considerable experience helping clients manage better their stress, anxiety, and the many different ways we can feel deep loss. Also, the troubling symptoms that can come from experiencing early trauma, or living in a way that has meant you've suffered abuse. My years as a therapist, and qualifications also allow me to integrate mindfulness practice into the way I work. It's a particular way of paying attention to our thoughts and feelings that can help us live with more ease, and a greater sense of well-being. With gentle effectiveness, it links mind and body assisting us to get to the heart of emotional or psychological troubles. 

My qualifications are listed further down the page.

I also provide individual supervision to professionals (or trainees) in the counselling, psychotherapy and other health care professions.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
