About me

My name is Kate Loughran. I am a qualified person centred counsellor, mindfulness meditation teacher, health and wellbeing coach and energy medicine practitioner.
I work with clients requiring assistance with a wide range of issues as I firmly believe that the relationship between the client and counsellor is the key to overcoming all difficulties regardless of their origins.

I am committed to working in a non judgemental manner, utilising my extensive experience to encourage my clients to become the very best that they can be.

I work with clients from all backgrounds including the corporate world. As a senior manager within the NHS, I am well versed with how large organisations operate and the conflict which this can generate for individuals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a person centred counsellor and a member of BACP.  I work to their code of ethics, receive regular supervision and continue through personal development to evaluate and promote my personal practice.

Basic Qualifications
Registered General Nurse
State Certified Midwife
Masters in Public Health Medicine, University of Glasgow
Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling Skills, Strathclyde University
Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling, Strathclyde University

I also teach mindfulness meditation and have completed one year Capacitar (Multi-Cultural Energy Medicine) which is especially helpful when working with trauma.

Member organisations


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.
