Kate Rushbrooke BA Hons, FdSc in Person-Centred Counselling
Specializing in helping families to flourish. I offer a broad spectrum of support to individuals who may be struggling with the everyday pressures of family life.
My adult counselling is very client focused. We explore the problems, frustrations, disappointments and pain in a confidential and non-judgemental way. I work towards empowering the client to make changes within their lives and consequently, their family. This very much focuses on the needs and passions of the client, afterall we cant support our family if we ourselves feel exhausted, unhappy and disillusioned.
I counsel children from the relaxed environment of my playroom. Offering a safe space to express and understand their emotions and worries with the use of a variety of materials including arts and crafts, crystals and relaxation and mindful techniques. I also equip children with strategies to cope with their anxieties and fears.
I am very experienced in counselling children with additional needs, ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia etc but more broadly, I have a deep understanding of anxiety and worry.

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.
