Kate Trew, FdA, MBACP
Counselling can help with a variety of problems and issues. These can be everyday worries or stresses to larger problems we may need help with. Sometimes we may not know why we feel low and talking to someone unconnected to the rest of our lives can help. I can offer you a safe, calm, and confidential space in which to explore any issues or difficult feelings you may have.
I adapt and tailor my skills to each client’s individual needs, taking an eclectic approach. I work with my clients to ensure they can get the most out of their counselling sessions. I endeavour to offer a space where clients can feel understood and accepted.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis. I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with over four years of client experience. As a registered member of the BACP, I abide by their ethical guidelines, requirements for Supervision, and continuing professional development.
I have experience in working with drug and alcohol addiction, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, disability, and cancer. As physical and mental health problems can exist alongside other areas please see 'Areas of counselling I deal with' below for more information.
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.
