Kate Watt BSc (Hons) ( MBACP ) - Treadaway Therapies
I am an experienced Counsellor who believes that where you are now is not where you will be after you have found the right counsellor to sit alongside you and work with you. There are lots of therapies available but I sincerely believe it is the long lasting, warm, accepting relationship that builds up over the therapy sessions that is where the healing and transformation occurs. By searching for help which is the first step ,I hope that I can be that reliable, warm, accepting Counsellor for you if you choose to work with me.
I have specialised in working with adults and young people over 14 who have experienced or are experiencing difficulties in coping with life. This can be through a life event such as an accident, bereavement, separation, divorce or the longer term pain of growing up with learning difficulties or a challenging family situation or as an adult in difficult or abusive relationships.
What do I offer?
I am trained in sensorimotor psychotherapy as I am fascinated by the discoveries in latest research that not only are memories of events and experiences held in the talking areas of our mind but also in the body. They may remain hidden there until we pay attention to what we are feeling, the sensations that we experience and rely on the wisdom of our whole being to keep us safe and seek to heal and restore us. This takes place when we mindfully approach our experiences and make contact with our inner knowing that has often been shut down or not attended to as we have been overwhelmed. This in essence is 'trauma' and the work we will do is to slowly pay attention to what is happening to us that has left us with symptoms not memories , symptoms of illness, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, thoughts of self harm or suicide. We would work together on your presenting difficulties and where needed I would also recommend other therapists such as a nutritionist to look at balancing the system with the correct diet or equine therapists who work to restore balance using the therapeutic nature of horses.
What qualifications do I have?
I have a psychology BSc (Hons) degree and a post qualifying level 7 diploma in counselling young adults and children. I also have a level 1 specialist training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I have a PGCE and I am a teacher who specialised in teaching children with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia and autism ( SENCO). I am a trained Myers Brigg practitioner which means that I am trained to help you discover your preference of where you gain your energy, how you make decisions, how you process information and how you present yourself in the outside world. This helps us make sense of who you are and it helps to guide us to find your strengths and abilities that you may not have fully developed yet.

On receiving your email or telephone enquiry I will respond by email or telephone to take a referral which means we would discuss what has brought you into counselling. We would arrange to meet for a first session at a time that was suitable and in that session we would agree on the number of sessions required, and on the work that you wanted to do. After that session we would meet in Cirencester at the Cirencester Baptist Church building on Love Lane. The sessions run for an hour, each week and I would ask for 7 days notice of cancellation of a session for holidays and 24 hours in case of illness.
