About me

Life can be tough at times!  I offer a safe place in which to explore the challenges you face, where you can talk freely, in order to decide the best way forward for you. I have supported hundreds of clients (see testimonials below). FREE TRIAL session.

'Cathie is a fantastic counsellor. She is incredibly empathetic and helps you get to the root of the problem. She provides you with a safe space where you can talk through your problems without judgement and then gives you the necessary steps to overcome them. I cannot recommend her highly enough.' N.S.

'I've spoken to many counsellors over the years and Cathie is something special. She made me feel at ease the second I sat down and created a space where I felt comfortable and judgement free. I couldn't recommend her more highly.' K.S.

'Cathie helped me to understand myself and taught me to be kinder to myself. Talking to Cathie helped me deal with anxiety and she brought me through a very difficult period of my life. Cathie is very professional, kind and empathetic. Thank you Cathie you have helped me more than you relaise.' C.M.

'My time with Cathie was incredible, her understanding and knowledge was pivotal in helping me to gain deeper insight into myself and what I needed going forward. ' S.H.

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
