Cath Carless - Psychotherapist and Counsellor registered with UKCP & BACP
Maidstone Building Mews
72-76 Borough High Street
I am a professionally qualified and experienced psychotherapist and counselor registered with the UKCP and BACP. I work from an established practice located in a quiet pedestrian mews off Borough High Street close to London Bridge station.
People come to see me for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes they cannot think of a particular cause for the way they are feeling. They know that they are not enjoying life as much as they would like.
Some feel anxious and depressed. Others are concerned about their lack of confidence and self esteem, or there are relationship difficulties at home, work or, socially.
It may be, that something happened quite a long time ago, but thinking about it is still very difficult.
I think it is really important to find a therapist who you feel comfortable sitting with, where you feel safe to talk about whatever comes into your head. Voicing thoughts and feelings with someone non judgemental and trained to listen in a particular way brings some piece of mind.
It may be that you also want to learn more about yourself to understand why you act or, react in a particular way and to look to make some changes in your life.
An initial meeting gives an idea of what it might be like working with me and to decide whether the way I work feels like the right approach for you.

I abide by the code of ethics and practice established by these organisations.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked as a counsellor in the charity sector, with WPF therapy and Sutton Counselling, where I was also employed on the assessment team.
I began training as a therapist in 2004 having been employed in various roles in the charity and public sector supporting parents and carers of children with learning difficulties and physical disabilities.
I have also worked on a voluntary basis with children on the autistic spectrum and also with children who have profound and multiple disabilities.
I recognise the strain which caring can bring to a family and the issues which can affect adults and children/young people with a disabled family member.

People approach counsellors and psychotherapists for all sorts of reasons, there is no wrong or, right way of being a client.
