Catherine Wiles MSc, Dip CG, DipSW, MBACP
I offer counselling and psychotherapy for adults, teenagers and children and have many years of experience in helping individuals, couples and families. I am happy to offer both short-term and longer-term work with any client(s).
I can help with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues and trauma - including post-traumatic stress disorder, abuse, bullying and assault.
I have experience in post-adoption work and I have an interest in the treatment of post-natal depression.
Along with my private practice, my work in the NHS has included 7 years as a GP practice counsellor and 5 years in the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service.
I offer life coaching, both with individuals and groups, offering practical and organisational-focused solutions, in the workplace if required.
I would describe my work now as integrative in that I incorporate psychodynamic, mindfulness, CBT and systemic approaches.. This enables me to deliver the most appropriate help to each client with whom I work.
Please do contact me - with no obligation - to discuss how I can help you.
