About me

I'm Catherine, a passionate therapist dedicated to helping people of all ages, from children and youths through to adults, navigate the challenges of life. I'm a relaxed, positive, and fun-loving individual who values the power of listening and fostering relationships. My mission as a therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where every individual's voice can be heard.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a foundation Degree in person-centred counselling and a Diploma in Child Psychology, which equips me with the knowledge and skills needed to connect with and support young and mature minds. During my academic journey, I had the privilege of completing my placement with Manchester Minds, where I had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of children and young adults, both with and without additional needs, as well as working with adults within Manchester college.

Since then, I have been working with Talk to Serenity to work with both Adults and Children using face to face and remote sessions. In these roles I have gained valuable experience from working with individuals facing a variety of emotional challenges. I have supported people coping with anxiety and depression, helped others navigate the complex emotions associated with grief and loss, and provided guidance to those dealing with abuse, including self-harm. These experiences have reinforced my commitment and desire to help individuals overcome their struggles and find happiness within themselves.

Beyond my formal training, I bring over 20 years of experience working with children and young people in educational settings. This includes working with children as young as 2 years old, through to teenagers and young adults. This has been both in mainstream settings and specialized educational environments, and has often involved working closely with young people living with autism. This background has provided me with a strong understanding of the unique needs and challenges that children and young adults face as they grow and develop, as well as the assistance that each requires in order to overcome these challenges. I am currently working on my professional development with my future plans involving child’s play therapy and sex therapy. 

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

My therapeutic approach is rooted in the belief that every individual deserves to have their voice heard. I am committed to creating a safe and empathetic environment enabling individuals to open up, share their stories, and explore their emotions without fear of judgement. I take a person-centred approach, allowing the individual to guide the therapeutic process, whether through conversation, creative expression, play or and even meditation. 

I am able to draw upon my own personal experiences in order to relate to the people I work with, and I have a passion for helping people find their own happiness and confidence. My own journey led me to pursue a career in counselling, and my own self-reflection gave me the desire to offer support and guidance to those in need of inspiration

Despite living with dyslexia, which has presented me with its own challenges, I have developed a unique approach to my role and have a skillset that allows me to identify the needs of my clients. This allows me to support them more effectively and gives me a more empathetic and understanding view of the challenges an individual may face.

In summary, my therapy services are grounded in empathy, compassion, and a deep commitment to helping individuals thrive. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you or your child and to be a supportive presence on the journey toward emotional well-being and personal growth. Please feel free to reach out, and together, we can embark on this transformative journey.
