Kate Graham UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist
I am an experienced coach and psychotherapist. I offer both short term counselling and longer-term therapy, depending on your needs and interests. I am passionate about helping people grow and connect with themselves, and I know from my own experience of therapy that this is both a wonderful and difficult journey.
I have helped people work through issues such as
- Loss and bereavement
- Anxiety and generalised anxiety disorder
- Depression and feeling sad
- Relationship and family issues
- Sexuality and identity
- Low self esteem and self confidence
- Life purpose and direction
I have a great curiosity about people. I like to listen to people and find out about them, and help them to find out what it is they really want, and ultimately, who they are. I don't want to label you or make judgements about you, but to find out about who you really are, how you think, what is important to you and what your passions are.
Locations for face to face counselling
My counselling and psychotherapy practice is based in Ilkley and is easy to reach by train and road from Leeds, Bradford, Bingley, Balidon, Guiseley, Saltaire, Menston, Skipton, Harrogate and much of West Yorkshire.
Do you feel more alive, more connected, more grounded when outdoors? If you find that you can connect to your feelings more easily when out in the open air you might like consider taking your therapy session outside.

I don't charge for the first 30 minutes of your initial session (if you decide to stay for the hour, the fee is £25), so you are free to come and see if working with me might work for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a full clinical member of UKCP and am bound by their ethical code, holding a diploma as an Integrative Psychotherapist through four years of advanced training.
I have trained extensively in NLP and am a qualified Master Practitioner and Certified Trainer, as well as an NLP Coach.
I am a trained mediator and hold a postgraduate certificate in Coaching and Mentoring.
I am fully insured and recieve regular supervision from a highly experienced psychotherapist and trainer.
I am committed to learning and professional and personal development, in order to provide the best service possible to my clients. Recent training includes a five day intensive course in working creatively with children and young people, and I take part in a regular CPD group.
In addition to my private practice, I currently work with young people in a local secondary school and in a Bradford primary school. I have previously worked with school students and staff at Goole High School, and as a volunteer therapist for Solace surviving exile and persecution, a charity that provides psychotherapy and support to refugees and asylum seekers suffering mental ill health in Leeds and Bradford.
Before training in psychotherapy I worked in the voluntary sector for nearly twenty years, in a varied career that took me to many countries, including living in Kenya and Ethiopia. I have learnt a great deal from these experiences and bring this learning to my practice.
I love being outside and attempt each year to grow vegetables, some with more success than others.
