Kate Priestley Bsc. (Hons) MBACP(Reg)
I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non- judgemental environment. I aim to help each client to enhance their lives and their relationships by exploring what may be troubling them.
At some point in our lives we may need help to find our way through a difficult period or life event. If something is currently troubling you it can be helpful to share these worries in a safe setting outside of the family/friendship realm. Through listening and talking I hope to bring understanding and some relief from distress as we work together and you share your story with me.
I offer short term and long term therapy, to adults, in a comfortable room that is in a quiet setting. Once you have contacted me we can meet and have a chat about what may be troubling you. This first session is free as it will give us the opportunity to meet and see if we can work together. We can consider how often you would like to come and for how long. I would encourage weekly sessions as regular appointments will help us to get to know each other and progress with the counselling work.
If you would like to have a chat about your concerns and how counselling may be of help to you then please don't hesitate to call me or e mail me. I would aim to offer you a first appointment for the following week.
