About me

My name is Kat and I know from experience that sometimes things may get too much and life may seem complicated and talking to a friend or a family member may not feel like a solution. Either you are experiencing stress, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, loss or any other emotional issue counselling may help. By providing you with a safe and confidential space I can assist you on a journey of self exploration and change.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling in Newcastle and have over 6 years experience providing therapy for adult individuals in NHS and private practice setting. I also hold Certificate in Couples Therapy from Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham and I currently work with couples as well as individuals.

I work integratively where I combine multiple theories to provide my clients with the best support possible. My training was drawn on Humanistic theories based on Person-Centred approach complemented by Transactional Analysis, Relational, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Existential theories. I believe there is no 1 approach to fit everybody therefore I tailor sessions to meet individual needs of each client to support their wellbeing and personal growth.

Being bilingual (Polish and English speaking) enables me to provide therapy in both languages and I work well with clients from any cultural and social background respecting their individual beliefs and values. I am trauma informed Therapist and I have experience working with an impact of a trauma including transgenerational and secondary trauma on individuals.

I offer face to face appointments in Durham and Jesmond. If you think you are ready to start your unique personal journey get in touch.

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.

Accredited register membership

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.
