Cate Whent. M.A. Dip Couns. Reg. BPC
Most of us find there are times in our lives when we need some help. You may be feeling stuck, overwhelmed, confused or low about issues in your life and not sure of where to turn. Finding the sort of help that will be right for you can also feel daunting. I offer a low-cost initial consultation where we can explore together what brings you to counselling and whether the sort of counselling I offer is right for you.
I work in a way which is confidential, thoughtful and professional. I am trained in the psychodynamic approach. This is a long established method of helping with a wide range of issues many of which are listed on this profile, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, OCD, relationship issues, bereavement and loss in all its forms.
How Counselling can help:
By coming to a weekly session you give yourself the time and space to think and talk about whatever is troubling you with someone who is trained to listen and support you.
We will work together as you gain insight and understand yourself better. This can help you make new and better choices for yourself and your relationships.
How you can find out if counselling is for you:
If you would like to find out more and would like to talk to me in confidence about how I may be able to help, please call me. Alternatively, send me an email letting me know when it would be convenient for me to call you.
I offer an initial meeting when you can tell me a bit about what brings you to counselling and we can decide whether we would like to work together on a weekly basis.
