I am an experienced counsellor ( with over 10 years experience) I am passionate about mental health and everyone having access to the right support at the right time. Since March 2020 I have moved to online counselling and also offering walking therapy which I have taken additional training to be able to offer this, I love the outdoors and understand the benefits to walking.
My approach encourages and supports individuals to explore and find the answers themselves. In a safe, confidential and comfortable environment.
I have a diploma in Specialist fertility Counselling and accreditation in infant loss, 2 subjects that I am very passionate about. I have also recently completed a CPD course in Birth Trauma to become a Birth Trauma Champion.
My special interest is Womens Issues and I have developed the "FlourisHER" wellbeing hub, which supports womens mental health in the workplace.
As your counsellor, I offer a safe comfortable and fully confidential environment. I endeavour to offer my clients a relationship that is without judgement and is open and honest. I also offer a full hours counselling, as I have found in the past this has worked best for me and my clients. I would describe myself as a challenging counsellor, with the aim to have a deep and meaningful relationship to get to the heart of your problems and work through these.
I am the Founder and CEO of Motherwell Cheshire which focuses on the wellbeing of mums, by way of holistic therapy and therapeutic groups.
I am a mum of 3 young children and have in the past had person centred counselling, I valued the time that I had to explore my feelings in a safe and confidential environment. With all my clients I strive to provide my clients with the same.
I have a vast experience of working closely with homeless individuals, and also single parents. My passion is working with survivors of/ or clients in an abusive relationship. I also have an in-depth knowledge of postnatal depression and Sexual Abuse and Rape. I also work with people who self-harm and individuals with drug and alcohol problems.
I run Continued Professional Development workshops throughout the year, all dates will be available on our website.
I also enjoy blogging, please visit my site www.kateblakemore.co.uk
I am a trained mediator and have experience of relationship counselling (however I am unable to counsel clients in a violent relationship)
In my current role, I work with individuals on self-esteem and anger issues, and explore ways forward with and causes that affect both.
I have a strong interest in Mindfulness and in the past have worked with clients on breathing techniques as well as a short meditation to help in stressful situations.
I have a fully enhanced CRB check, and I am fully insured.

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

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
