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 integrative 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.

I offer 50-minute sessions on a short term or ongoing basis. Sessions are usually weekly on the same day and at the same time each week. Frequency and number of sessions are something we can discuss so that the therapy is tailored to your needs.
