Catherine Lawson Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor
01282 611186 / 07505 354318
Hi, my name is Catherine and I am a person-centred counsellor and cognitive behaviour therapist.
Life can get difficult at times and counselling can help you through these difficulties. I will walk alongside you with any issues that you are carrying and together we will find the best solution that is right for you. I believe everyone has their own answers and I will help you find yours.
I work mainly as a person-centred counsellor and work with your individual needs, supporting you through our work together as you develop a greater understanding of yourself. I may use various techniques like relaxation and different strategies to look deeper into the problems in your life affecting thoughts and behaviour.
I may send things home with you to extend our counselling hour, giving you techniques for life.
As a counsellor I offer you my genuineness as we build a relationship and trust. I will create a safe and confidential place for you to open your issues up and listen without judgement as we begin to move forward.
My clinical supervision is offered in an empathic manner, bringing in support, trust and challenge, allowing progression in your individual style of working.
Thank you for reading and please don't hesitate to call if what I offer is for you.
