About me

Making the initial step and asking for support or guidance via therapy is often the hardest step and the process of visiting a therapist for the first time can cause much anxiety and fear.
This is a perfectly normal way to feel when entering the unknown. You may feel uncertain about what actually happens in a therapy session.

My name is Cathie and I hope that I can help alleviate some of your anxiety.
If you would like to come and see me the first session is a chance for us to meet and explore you and your life experiences. The session will last 1 hour and also gives us a chance to see if we can make a connection. The sessions are your space and so it is important that you feel comfortable and that trust can be developed with me.

As your therapist it is not my role to tell you what to do but I can help you explore yourself, your life experiences and any patterns that occur. This will aid you in gaining a deeper self awareness and understanding of yourself, which we all need to live happier and more fulfilled lives.

I work to an integrative model, which incorporates many different techniques and theories. Using this model allows me the freedom to tailor the therapy to each individuals needs. It is my belief that it is the relationships and experiences within them, from our childhood to the present, that hold the key to happiness and understanding. These relationships form who we are and with exploration into oneself we can discover how these experiences translate themselves into our lives today.

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.

£50.00 per session

Additional information

Counselling fees are £50 per session for individual and £75 for a couple.

It is usually best to start off with a minimum of six sessions to give counselling a fair trial. We will then discuss together if there is a requirement to extend your number of sessions to meet your needs.

The initial meeting is to discuss issues you feel are causing you difficulty in your life at present and explore what you hope to achieve from counselling.

At this point you decide whether counselling is for you and also if we can work together.

Long and short term counselling contracts are offered depending on your needs and your emotional issues.

I specialise in working with people who suffer with depression and related issues. I have also have experience of working with trauma and sexual abuse.
