Kate Hope Slater Msc. Clin dip. BACP and UKCP accred
Professional and confidential counselling in Lewes. I am an experienced, UKCP and BACP accredited/registered therapist with a private practice in Lewes offering affordable therapy for adults. Initial consultations are half price.
A safe, caring private place to talk about personal problems and the stresses of modern living, including:

- Relationship issues
- Low self confidence
- Identity and Sexuality
- Issues from Childhood Motherhood/Fatherhood
- Loss and Bereavement
- Self harm and abuse

You don't have to be in crisis to benefit, as it can also assist you with:
Spiritual growth and self knowledge
Expanding your choices
Resolving inner conflicts and stuckness
Finding direction and identity
I am an integrative, relational therapist.
Integrative' means I work within my own framework, integrating different but complementary strands of therapy from psychodynamic and humanistic traditions such as Gestalt and TA. This is because I believe that one size does not fit all. We are individuals and what may suit one person may not suit another.
'Relational' means I aim to meet your relational needs. For example, sometimes you may need help with acting on a problem; at other times, to talk about your feelings. It also means I am interested in all your relationships, past and present.
I operate my practice along with lines of an equal opportunities employer; aiming to be sensitive and aware of your cultural and ethnic origins, and to your religious beliefs and sexual orientation. I have regular supervision and update my training with continued professional development.
How can therapy help you?
I aim to help you gain a perspective about whatever is concerning you. Together we identify what may be preventing you reach your potential.
I am trained to look beyond presenting problems to possible underlying causes. This is to help you understand and accept yourself; to change your behaviour to something better for you, and to help you move towards becoming the kind of person you want to be (words inspired by therapist Stephen Palmer, 2005)
I am experienced in working both short and long term. I offer an initial consultation in which you can decide whether we are right for one another; and then, if you do, usually up to six sessions. It is up to you if you wish to continue after this period, or at any time.
All calls and messages are confidential.
