Kate McGuire- Trauma and Psychosexual Therapist
Reaching out to start therapy is a courageous but often frightening experience. You may have a good idea about the areas that are troubling you but generally they are not yet fully known. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where we can begin to explore your present distress, understand past influences and work towards a satisfying future. I am a qualified EMDR practitioner who specialises in working with trauma, attachment disruptions, loss and abuse in adults and adolescents. As an advanced trainee in Psychosexual Therapy, I also help individuals and couples struggling with sexual and relationship issues. I practice in a fully inclusive way to support gender, relationship and sexual diversity. Through a combination of verbal and non-verbal approaches catered to meet your needs, therapy will support you to develop new insights and integrate your experiences leading to sustainable internal change. From this place, you can begin to truly reconnect with yourself and those who matter to you most.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 10 years of clinical experience working within a variety of settings including the NHS, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, the social care sector and a London based private therapy clinic. My practice is culturally enriched by my experiences working in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom over the past decade.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
