Kate Woodhouse - Registered MBACP (Accred)
Do you ever spend time trying to work out why you think, behave and feel as you do?
At times in our lives we can all feel lost, unsure and sometimes broken. As our emotions fluctuate we struggle to make sense of our feelings, whilst at other times we may seek counselling because we are overwhelmed by a specific event. The world may not always feel safe and we may withdraw. We lose our self-belief and no longer trust we can be understood or that our feelings can be heard and attended to. People seek counselling for all sorts of different and valid reasons.
I am a warm, caring and experienced Counsellor. In my work I provide a safe and confidential space, creating opportunity for exploration of behaviours, thoughts and feelings. Helping to give understanding to the feelings and responses which are being encountered, where the reality of our past, as well as current events can impact our emotional wellbeing in the here and now.

I have worked as a counsellor and clinical supervisor both in private practice and within various organisations. I have a wealth of experience in supporting individuals with a range of differing challenges, for example, attachment, loss, grief, bereavement, including complicated grief and challenges to wellbeing in the work place.
I have also worked as a counselling tutor for CPCAB (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body), developing counselling students in applying theory in practice and supporting them in a supervisory role. This teaching was integrated and therefore consisted of a range of modalities.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
