Kate Ashton. MBACP (Accred)
I offer counselling to both individuals and couples. Evening appointments available.
I understand that counselling can be difficult and taking the first step can seem daunting. I will offer you the space to explore any thoughts, feelings or experiences you may be finding difficult.
I will not offer you advice or tell you what to do. I will listen without judgement and will try to understand your experience from your point of view.
I believe the client is at the center of the therapy process and that the relationship between the client and counsellor is the most important aspect of our work together.
I offer you a safe space to meet and discuss whatever is on your mind.

My work experience includes volunteering at the Terrance Higgins Trust as well as several years volunteer work for a local counselling charity before setting up in private practice.
This work has seen me gain experience in areas such as HIV, eating disorders, addiction, depression, anxiety, sexual and emotional abuse, redundancy, recovery from serious illness, and relationship issues.
In addition, I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
