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

BACP

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.
