Kate Angell MBACP
My counselling practice is based in a peaceful, village setting close to Market Harborough, easily accessible from South Leicestershire and North Northamptonshire. I offer a free initial consultation, so that you are able to get a feel for me and my way of working, before making a decision. Off-road parking is available.
Why choose counselling? And why me? It can be hard to express difficult feelings with family and friends, as we may feel we are 'burdening' them or we might fear being judged and this can be risky. Counselling allows us to speak to someone who, is not only trained to work with us, but is completely unrelated to our lives. There is no risk or 'burden' - just 50 minutes of time for you.
I seek to provide you with an environment of acceptance and respect, somewhere you can feel safe to explore your feelings - to just say anything and be yourself! Throughout your journey of self-discovery, I will be alongside you, supporting you in a professional and non-judgemental way. By exploring your thoughts and feelings in depth, and with my theoretical input (if and when needed!), you will hopefully develop a greater sense of self-awareness, build resilience and make better choices.
My counselling approach is Humanistic and relational, which simply means that I believe in the potential of all people - give us the right conditions and we can and will flourish! It is my job as counsellor to provide the 'right conditions' and for me this is all about the relationship between client and counsellor. I would not expect anyone to discuss their deepest, darkest secrets with someone who they did not like or trust and this is why I offer a free initial consultation. Come and see if you could work with me, before making any financial commitment.
I am happy to work with a wide-range of mental health issues, but my areas of special interest are; Adverse Childhood Experiences and Low Self-Esteem.
