About me

Making the decision to seek counselling isn't an easy one and it's really important to find the right therapist for you. I offer a free, no obligation fifteen minute telephone consultation in order that we can discuss your needs.

I tailor make my treatment for you incorporating the best methods available. I specialise in trauma, co-dependency, sexual compulsivity and Somatic Experiencing.

Here are some testimonials from clients.

" I felt respected and was given the time to talk about my emotions without judgement. The counselling I received far exceeded my expectations."

" Kate was not overwhelmed when I was, but she was empathic throughout. With Kate's help I have looked at my life and what I can do to improve it. I have never felt pushed into dealing with anything before I have been ready."

" Kate has walked alongside me during very traumatic times for me. She quickly understood my world and I felt she was standing beside me looking at how I view things".

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
