About me

Hi my name is Kate, thank you for visiting my profile.  Here are a few of the reasons you may want to talk.....

Are you seeking clarity in an area of your life?

Do you want to explore new strategies which could help you to cope with difficult situations and feelings?

Do you feel stuck and unsure of how to move forward?

You may be feeling overwhelmed and need to talk through your feelings

Are you finding it difficult to make sense of things?

Do you feel that something in your life needs to change but you don't know where to start?

If you can relate to any of the above it might be that counselling could help you to unravel your thoughts, feeling and beliefs.  Counselling can help you to explore the options and choices available to you, clarify issues, develop strategies and increase your self-awareness.

I'm a qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP.  I offer a confidential, supportive and respectful space where you can explore your difficulties.

My counselling approach is integrative.  We will work to build a respectful collaborative relationship with an understanding that we are all helped by different processes at different times of our lives, however the person-centred way of working underpins everything I do.

I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation. During this time we can explore what has brought you to counselling, how we can work together and talk through any questions and/or concerns that you may have.

I have a private practice as well as working as an affiliate counsellor for Optima Health,  Validium and PAMWellbeing all of whom provide solution focused brief therapy through their employee assistance programmes (EAP).  I also work for The Learning Support Centre supporting university students in my work as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor.  

Prior to re-training to be a counsellor I spend many years working in the food industry in technical and product development roles.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

The room I rent for in person sessions is fully accessible
