Kate Watt - MBACP Accredited Counsellor/Supervisor
Are you having difficulty with anxiety, low mood or anger?
Struggling with a relationship, study or work issues?
Feeling alone, unhappy or held back by trauma or bereavement?
If you are reading this you may have realised you are struggling and need support. It can feel hard to admit this to yourself and harder still to share those vulnerabilities. I offer a quiet space for you to approach these issues sensitively and with compassion. Just get in touch and we can see if together we can navigate you back to you.
I offer a person-centred approach which allows you space and time to make sense of experiences, thoughts and emotions which in turn strengthens a feeling of control. I also offer CBT tools which can help you to manage intrusive negative thoughts and worry, whilst a Compassion-based approach brings balance to feelings of low self-worth.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 11 years counselling experience and in this time I have work for a NHS health and wellbeing service for young people and adults, a University counselling setting and latterly in a private counselling practice.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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 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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
When I first approached Kate for counselling my self-confidence was at a low ebb and I was plagued by a stressful life event, self-doubt and rumination. Kate is very approachable, warm and empathetic and was just the right person to give me the positive and non-judgemental counselling I needed at this difficult time. My counselling appointment was a safe space to be honest about my feelings, work through them and discuss ways of moving forward without feeling judged or misunderstood. Kate also gives great self-care advice which has been a core part of my recovery and I’ve established a set of habits that I will ensure I carry forward for the foreseeable. (Female 44yrs)

This Green Space Counselling Cabin
Tucked away in the Carse of Gowrie I offer face-to-face counselling from a peaceful cabin with green views of the willow and silver birch. A place which gives you space to just 'be', to collect and process your thoughts and emotions with a counsellor holding the weight of emotion together. This Green Place offers a retreat from the bustle of life, a way to immerse yourself in peace.
It has easy access from both Dundee and Perth 15/20 minute drive, 5 minutes off the A90 at Inchmichael flyover.
