Catherine Cook MSc, BA (Hons), Couns. Dip., UKCP, MBACP
Are work, family or other relationships troubling you? Perhaps something that happened long ago has suddenly started to bother you, or you are struggling to cope with a recent change in your life? You might be feeling overwhelmed, or unable to see the woods for the trees, suffering with symptoms like anxiety, depression, phobias or panic attacks?
I work collaboratively with people when they're feeling vulnerable, helping them with difficult emotional experiences. Whether you want to feel like your 'old self', find relief from symptoms, or develop new self belief, I can work with you to help you achieve this.
Training, qualifications & experience
I had counselling myself when I was in my 30’s, when I was working in a corporate career and it helped me so much that it inspired me to retrain as a therapist; I have been practising since 2013.

Free telephone consultation: I don’t charge for an initial telephone consultation as this can help you decide how you feel about working with me.
I charge £55 for a counselling session (50 minutes)
I currently work at the Pim Clinic, Caversham, near Reading in Berkshire, and my practice in Crays Pond, near Goring-on-Thames in South Oxfordshire.
Sessions last for 50 minutes, and are usually on the same day and at the same time. If you need a more flexible approach, we can discuss this at our first session.
