Cathie Hendrick - Counsellor, Psychotherapist, and Supervisor MBACP, UKCP
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor. A member of BACP for many years, and UKCP accredited. I see clients in Whimple village, Budleigh Salterton and Exeter - all in Devon. And also Glasgow city centre, in Scotland.
I'm committed to offering therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I believe you, the client are the expert on your own life situation, and I work in a way that honours this. To supplement this way of working (where a client wishes it) I also offer 'experiential focusing' - a gentle way of linking mind and body which can assist getting to the heart of a client's discomfort. My website lets you know more about me and how I may be able to help you.
My experience and qualifications allow me to integrate mindfulness practice into the way I work. Mindfulness is 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.
I also provide individual supervision to professionals (or trainees) in the counselling, psychotherapy and other health care professions.
