Catherine Dimopoulos MA (CBT) Reg. MBACP (accred.)
I am a fully qualified and BACP accredited counsellor / therapist with 18 years NHS experience, having worked in primary care, alongside the GPs of Cardiff and the Vale.
I have a small private practice, based in a very welcoming therapeutic space in the heart of Cowbridge.
As an integrative counsellor, I work with my clients to tailor appropriate interventions and help them to find the best way forward. Whatever difficulties you may bring to counselling, and whatever issues with mood, self esteem or anxiety that these difficulties have caused you, there will be a way forward.
I hold a Masters degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I integrate CBT methods with other models of intervention to suit your needs. Counselling is a confidential and respectful process - I aim to always provide a safe space for you to explore your difficulties, whatever they may be, and to work towards achieving your therapeutic goals.
I work one-to-one with adults and young people age 16+. This can be either face-to-face or via FaceTime or Skype if preferred. I can also offer group intervention for issues with self esteem, assertion and confidence.
At our first appointment we will explore your reasons for counselling and set out a plan for any future appointments. Experience has taught me that people have varying levels of requirements from counselling - whilst a single session may be helpful to some, others may wish to have a series of weekly or fortnightly sessions. Whatever the requirement, we will work together to ensure your counselling experience is a positive and empowering one.
If you would like to arrange an appointment, or would like further information, please email or call on the number provided.
