About me

Hello,

My name is Kate and I am an experienced individual and couples counsellor and psychotherapist working in Bayswater, close to Notting Hill.  My practice is 2 minutes from the Central Line and 5 minutes from the Circle and District lines, so easily accessible from all parts of London. I also work in Shepherd's Bush on Mondays and Fridays and weekends.

I offer a confidential and non-judgmental space where you can feel safe to explore whatever is troubling you. You may feel anxious about contacting a counsellor or therapist but in my experience being able to talk freely and openly about your thoughts, feelings and behaviours with someone who is not a friend or family member gives you the opportunity to develop awareness, grow emotionally and explore your perceptions and view of yourself and your life without worrying about being a burden or fear of exposure. It can be life enhancing.

I have a Post graduate diploma in Transpersonal Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Centre, having completed a 5-year training as an integrative and transpersonal therapist at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in Little Venice, London (www.ccpe.org.uk).

I enjoy working creatively with my clients and allowing the client's own individual needs and process to guide me in developing a therapeutic strategy for him or her alone. I work using a range of different therapeutic models including CBT, psychodynamic, drawing, Gestalt and active imagination.

My clients range from people needing to explore and deal with past issues which are affecting their current lives, people with relationship and family issues, those who are feeling sad or suffering from anxiety and depression. I also frequently work with people with panic disorders and those going through separation or divorce or dealing with affairs and betrayal. I have a lot of experience of helping people who have suffered bereavement and loss and

How people relate to each other is of great interest to me. Poor communication is the source of many of the world's problems. When we examine and become conscious of our patterns of communication and are ready to make positive changes, huge shifts become possible and our self esteem is enhanced.

We meet initially for an assessment and discuss what you want and hope to get from counselling/therapy. You are under no obligation to continue. If we feel happy to go ahead we will meet on a weekly basis for either short-term counselling or open ended psychotherapy. You can contact me either by phone or email to arrange the first session and discuss how we might happily work together.

I am currently specialising in Couples Counselling due to my interest in communication styles, how we relate to one another and how we can unconsciously sabotage our relationships  due to feeling disappointed that our partners cannot heal our primary wounds. Wounds inflicted during our childhoods, unintentionally, by our parents.

I also specialise in parenting, all forms of anxiety: including young people's lack of direction and insecurity (fear of the future), depression, lack of meaning and purpose in life, work and home related stress, lack of confidence and sense of identity.

I am a UKCP registered and accredited psychotherapist and abide by their ethics. I am registered with Aviva, AXA PPP and Vitality insurance companies.
