Catherine Nabbs MBACP
Are you feeling angry, anxious, overwhelmed or suffering from low mood?
Has something recently happened to you that you need to talk about with someone who won’t judge but who can help you make sense of things?
Perhaps you’ve had a traumatic or difficult experience that you need to talk over?
Maybe you wake up each day feeling unfulfilled and have a sense that there must be more to life than this?
It may be that you are experiencing something new, such as parenthood, which is bringing up uncomfortable memories of your past?
Whatever your presenting concern, I provide a confidential, safe space for you to reflect on your goals and explore areas that you want to address to move forward in life in a more fulfilling way. Either you can come and see me in my consulting room in Langton Green, just outside of Tunbridge Wells, or you may prefer to access counselling with me via webcam, or indeed a combination of the two depending on your circumstances.
I am experienced in dealing with anxiety and depression, which may be a product of unresolved issues in the past, or triggered by more recent experiences such as bereavement, change of career or relationship breakdown. Counselling provides a valuable opportunity to talk and reflect on these issues.
Research has shown that the relationship between the counsellor and client is one of the most important factors in successful counselling, I therefore offer a free initial session for us to meet and discuss your needs and expectations, and during this time we can decide together the best way forward.

Initial 50 minute consultation sessions are free – further sessions also last for 50 minutes and are charged at £40 per session.
I have some lower cost places available, please contact me to discuss this and to arrange your free initial consultation.
For some a brief course of counselling to reflect on a specific issue is enough to start with (anywhere from 6-12 sessions), while others may want to explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviour patterns in more depth, in which case I can offer open ended counselling. We can discuss your individual requirements and any concerns during the consultation session.
