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.
