About me

Hello world, my name is Kate and I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor, and member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist (MBACP).

I am very passionate about my client work and I love to see people change through the therapeutic journey. I believe people can really grow and over come their issues through counselling.

I can offer a safe, warm and professional space for you to explore your issues confidentially and without judgement.

If you are interested in having counselling please email me so that we can agree a time and day for a free no obligation assessment, in order to assess your needs.

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.
