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.
Because everyone is unique they require an individual approach to counselling which is why I use an integrative approach tailoring the counselling to best suit you.
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.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
