Catherine House BSc MBACP (Accred)
I have extensive experience of working with a range of issues and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I appreciate that entering counselling can sometimes feel daunting so I do not charge for an initial session to give you the opportunity to discover whether you feel we might be a good fit before you commit. My comfortable discreet therapy rooms are close to Farnham Station and have ample parking. I am able to offer early morning pre commute and some evening appointments to fit around your needs, alongside general daytime hours.
I offer long-term, short-term and brief counselling based upon the development of a trusting therapeutic relationship so that you can feel comfortable to share whatever you would like without fear or judgement. Past clients have described me as warm and accepting and I believe that that is key to creating an empathic space to support you to move forward towards your goal.
Whatever the reason you are considering counselling currently I offer a safe, containing space through which you can identify what you need, or want. Whether this is exploring a life challenge, a desire for personal growth, working out what matters to you and identifying options that could help you to achieve that, I work in a way that helps to facilitate your journey, not set your path.
I aim to provide an inclusive environment and remain flexible in my approach to offer as a truly responsive service. I have experience of working with diverse backgrounds and age groups.
If you have any questions or would simply like more information please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
