About me

Hi, I am Kate, a fully qualified Pluralistic Counsellor seeing individuals as well as being a fully qualified Couples Counsellor seeing all types of partnerships (please check my qualifications and experience below).    I am a registered member of the BACP, offering face-to-face and online counselling in a warm, safe, non-judgemental space.    I work with each client or clients with compassion, to tailor the therapy to their unique and individual needs.   I am experienced at working with trauma including sexual trauma, relationship issues, such as poor communication, affairs and relationship breakdown.  I also work with anxiety and depression and a wide range of issues and concerns.  

Trauma 

I am a trauma-informed counsellor and have completed training on how trauma impacts the body and mind.  I work in a trauma agency dealing with historical childhood sexual abuse, and sexual assault.  I support people who are dealing with the effects of trauma, such as post traumatic stress symptoms, suicidal thoughts and self-harm. 

Anxiety, depression and low mood

I  support clients with anxiety and depression helping them to work through some of the underlying issues that may have caused them to feel like this.  This can involve finding practical ways to deal with their anxiety on a day-to-day basis and how it is manifesting for them.  I have a special interest in Parts Work which can be helpful in this area.

Relationship issues

I work with people struggling to make sense of their relationship with their partners.  I have worked with couples facing a range of issues such as poor communication, affairs and relationship breakdown and intimacy using psychodynamic techniques (looking at the past and how it effects the present)  and person centred approaches where couples are given a safe and compassionate space to explore issues and to have those difficult conversations.  I help couples to identify what their needs and wants are within relationships and to look for ways to improve their communication patterns. 

"Kate offered us a warm and supportive space to explore some very difficult life events. She brought humour and encouragement and was straight talking when appropriate. Over our sessions we were able to build a great relationship with Kate, thanks to her very human approach, which was so important to us both but especially my partner who was new to therapy. Would definitely recommend Kate to any couples who need a space to connect and open up.”

Loss and Grief

I have supported people who have struggled with grief, loss and change that can occur through life.  Be it from bereavement, loss of jobs and transitional life changes.  Offering a warm, empathic and safe space to explore these issues.

I have a background of working in mental health, within the NHS and Third sector supporting individuals with depression, anxiety and long term mental health problems.     I have also worked as a complimentary therapist and a horticultural therapist.  I offer warmth and authenticity,  please do take a look at my website and get in touch if you would like to find out more information,

Member organisations

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.

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.
