About me

Hi, my name is Kate, and I run a psychotherapy practice from my own home in South Manchester. The space I work in gives people a safe and discreet environment, which quickly builds trust and mutual understanding.

Psychotherapy supports people in various situations. Most often it simply starts when people want to understand why there are certain recurring & disruptive patterns in their lives, and then want to explore how to change them. Or sometimes, it’s just to get a better understanding of their personality, and to start appreciating themselves more.

Either way, working together with an experienced psychotherapist offers people a trusting and supportive partnership, and a wonderful opportunity to make positive choices that improve complicated lifestyles, tricky relationships and unique situations. The point is, whatever it is that is worrying you, you do not have to be alone. I’m well known for being very down-to-earth, intuitive and supportive. Just give me a quick call or email, and lets arrange a convenient time for you to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat. I live on a quiet road in Chorlton, with loads of free parking space and privacy.

Member organisations


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.
