Cathy Raven MBACP (Registered)
I am a fully qualified counsellor with 7 years' counselling experience. I work with adults and teenagers facing a wide range of difficulties in their lives.
I work in a calm and confidential setting close to the centre of Louth, Lincolnshire.
During appointments we will work together to untangle the thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing. We will aim to gain insight into the issues you are dealing with, helping you to better understand what is going on. Everyone is different and the process will move at whatever pace is right for you - I don't set a limit on the number of sessions.
I will not give advice or tell you what to do, but aim to help you find your own way forward.
I recognise how daunting it can be to ask for help, so if you would prefer to email me with your contact details then I will get back to you within 24hrs.
I also do home visits for clients who find it easier not to travel.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling from Lincoln College and six years experience as a counsellor working with clients facing a range of issues and difficulties.
Some of my experience as a counsellor comes from working voluntarily at The Centre for Grief & Loss in Lincoln. This involved working with clients dealing with bereavement, but also with different kinds of loss as well as a range of underlying issues.
Four years ago I set up my own private counselling practice, meeting clients in a comfortable, purpose-built room at my home. I work with clients dealing with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, family issues, relationship issues, trauma, sexual abuse, OCD and emotional issues arising from health problems. I also run the student counselling service at Franklin College in Grimsby.
I have worked as an Associate of Fortis Therapy and Training, providing one to one counselling in schools as well as working with adult clients at their base in Grimsby (see www.fortistherapy.co.uk).
I am a registered member of the BACP, and I am working towards accreditation with this organisation.
