About me

Hello my name is Kate. I am a fully qualified person centred counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work with both individuals and couples.

One of the hardest things to do is admit that you have a problem and need help. The fact that you are even reading this is a huge step. You may have a clear idea what is wrong or something may just not feel right – like you can’t put your finger on it.

I can provide you with a with a confidential space where you can explore whatever is troubling you and make sense of your thoughts and feelings. You will be listened to carefully without judgment and supported on your own individual journey.

For the past 3 years I have worked in a GP practice and within the NHS my focus has been on delivering short term counselling over 6-12 sessions. I have a wide range of experience working with depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, trauma and physical, sexual and emotional abuse.

With my background of 11 years as an employment lawyer, I have supported employees and employers when facing difficult situations. Specialising in discrimination law I feel that I have a very real understanding of stresses and challenges facing people in the workplace.

I trained in the person centred approach because I believe that it is the relationship between counsellor and client makes all the difference. I find it a privilege to work with my clients, be part of their life and accompany them on their journey.

I am a champion of equality and would love for mental health to be as important as physical health. I believe strongly that everyone should have access to counselling services.

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.
