Catherine Gair ~ Registered Member MBACP
Taking time to explore our own inner world is a gift few people allow themselves. Giving ourselves the space to explore our experiences and relationships can be hugely liberating and life changing.
About me and my therapy practice:
Our early experiences affect the way we think about ourselves, relate to others and adapt to stress later in our lives.
I offer my clients the freedom to pick the topics they wish to discuss in each session. This is important in my work as our thoughts, feelings, actions, dreams and experiences are all connected. They offer us clues into our concerns and unconscious. Exploring these can be hugely beneficial in helping make sense of what is underlying.
This offers the opportunity to really get honest with ourselves and confront our internal emotion truth. The traumas we suffer in life, no matter how small, can affect everything- from the partners we pick to the experiences we acknowledge or deny.
Our modern fast paced lifestyle has encouraged us to avoid thinking about emotional development in ourselves and our children. We often distract ourselves with gadgets, quick fixes and endless schedules finding ourselves exhausted and too busy to pause and dig deeper. In my work I offer the space to do just that.
Training, qualifications & experience
Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
