About me

My work background is in Motivational Teaching, Wellbeing & TV Journalism. I work holistically with a trauma focus, listening to you in a non-judgmental, warm safe space to collaboratively explore your process.

I am experienced at working with International men, women and children from varied social backgrounds with a broad variety of issues. I work in Cyprus and the UK in person and internationally worldwide on-line and support organisations working in conflict zones; having experience of working in stressful areas of conflict myself prior to my training as a psychotherapist.

You may be feeling anxious, overwhelmed or traumatised - Perhaps you are disillusioned with life in general, or tired of holding on to negative self-beliefs, repeating the same old patterns or ways of handling things that you may have outgrown?

You might be needing support while you are going through a tough life transition, have witnessed trauma,  a challenging life threatening illness or finding stress hard to manage. You may be faced with impossible choices or experiencing desperate loss.

'Kate's clients seem to engage quickly with her and stay the course making significant changes'

My philosophy... I strongly believe that we all have the potential for growth - whatever our experience. I am committed to facilitating that growth, collaboratively journeying alongside you. Starting a therapeutic relationship takes courage and commitment and can be daunting.  However, it will be life-changing

What to expect when you come to Counselling or Psychotherapy...

How does it work?
After an initial confidential phone call / email - we will agree a place and time to meet for an initial consultation. This will last for one hour in one of my comfortable and quiet consulting rooms, or on-line via Zoom/ Skype during Covid-19 restrictions. Our session will be completely confidential.

How many sessions might you need?
In our first meeting, you will hopefully get an idea on whether you might be able to work with me, to achieve your goals in a therapeutic relationship. After this initial assessment of each other, we will then agree on how many sessions you would like to commit to. Usually, we would meet weekly on the same day and time. Some people only need 10-12 sessions of counselling, in order to achieve their goals or to alleviate their symptoms. Others may need and prefer to stay in counselling & psychotherapy for much longer.

How do I work with you?
I offer an integrative approach in the therapeutic space. I use the relationship between us to allow your story and processes to unfold, enabling you to grow in self-awareness and re-connect to your authentic 'self'.  This means I draw on different psychotherapeutic theories. We would work collaboratively at your pace - building new awareness around the issues you are faced with.

How do you pay for Counselling?
We will agree to my fee prior to the first consultation. I take payment at the beginning of our weekly counselling sessions. You can pay in cash or via Bank transfer.  Regretfully I do not take credit cards.

What happens next?
If you have any questions that you would like to ask me, or if you would like to book an appointment, then I welcome you to call me on 07725 109961 or click here to send me an email.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

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.
