A. Kate Peter
I offer a space where you can feel safe, and free to talk about the issues that you are facing, knowing that what you say is confidential, and whatever you say will not be judged. I am an Integrative therapist which means that I will tailor the therapy to suit you and your personal needs, giving you a person-centred approach, looking at you as a whole person.
Undertaking counselling is a journey where you can grow as a person and increase your awareness around how you relate to others and how you feel within yourself.
In our work together, I use many interventions, including creative techniques, that can help you to move forward with your life and deal with the problems that you are currently facing.
I am a qualified Psychotherapist who has worked for the last 4 years within a GP’s surgery, helping with a huge array of issues from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, eating disorders, early onset dementia, MS, self-esteem, to name but a few. You can see a list of all the areas I can work with below. My aim is to make you feel safe, that you can trust me, be able to talk about things that you maybe cannot talk about with anybody else or indeed may never have talked about with anybody before.
I have worked with people from different cultures and also recently worked with individuals from EU countries who are feeling great anxiety around their future in this country.
We will review our work regularly to make sure that we are working towards our agreed goals.
