About me

Hi, I’m Cathie, the process of looking for a counsellor can be a little daunting, so welcome you to my profile. I like to work with anyone who feels they need help to be curious about the difficulties they experience.

My experience as a children and young people’s counsellor allows me to reach out to clients of high school age in addition to the experience of counselling adults of all ages. I also work empathically with parent/child relationships and families, relationships under strain due to a diagnosis including neurodivergent conditions and age-related pressures. I have worked extensively with people with neurodivergent conditions and mental health difficulties.

My practice is inclusive and my space is accessible, so allowing you to bring to counselling any thoughts and feelings you feel you need help with. Each person brings their own set of needs so there are no wrong answers or ways of seeing things. I work unconditionally in a Person-Centred way; I strongly believe that each person is an expert on their own set of needs. I can help you to work towards a point where you feel satisfied with your understanding of you and able to cope with your individual challenges.

I am happy to work in person at my space or online face to face in a safe and confidential space of your own. I look forward to sharing and facilitating your process.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA (Hons) Person-Centred Counselling Degree, which allows me to work with adults in addition I have an Advanced Certificate in Systemic Counselling which allows me to work with couples and families. I also have an Advanced Certificate in Working with Children and Young People.

I have worked for over 25 years with Children and Young People in various settings. I have received extensive training while working with neurodiversity, so have a good understanding of the difficulties by clients who have been diagnosed or are not diagnosed.

I am also a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
