Kate Rushbrooke BA Hons, FdSc in Person-Centred Counselling
Offering a fresh approach to counselling in a friendly, relaxed and compassionate environment. I see my role as helping you to express your concerns, worries and needs with the foresight of building a happier and fulfilled future. Together we can dig deep into your world to re-discover your true self complete with desires and aspirations. My expertise allows for deep empathy and understanding, enabling you the client to become empowered and positive.
My qualifications and experience within a vast array of human situations, equips me to support my clients with whatever they are dealing with.
In addition to the work I do with survivors of sexual abuse, my specialist area is Counsellor and Mentor to parents whose children present with Complex and Challenging Behaviours mainly due to Developmental Disorders including all forms of Autism spectrum disorders such as PDA and conditions such as ADHD, Dyslexia and anxiety etc.
Within my specialist area, I offer a personalised six module counselling and mentoring service. With on call support in between sessions, I can accompany you on your journey to help you as a parent to re-discover yourself, your passions and your inner resources as a means of offering the best support possible to your child. My sessions incorporate traditional counselling techniques along with strategies for maintaining good mental health, solid personal resilience and living life to the full despite the challenges. The Recipe for helping Families to Flourish!
