About me

Sometimes its hard to admit to ourselves that we need help, whether it's with challenging life events, relationship issues or perhaps childhood experiences that refuse to stay in the past.  Maybe you are unsure why you feel the way you do but have lost your confidence in yourself or your abilities which has left you with feelings of  increasing isolation.  If this resonates with how you feel, I am here for you.  I am a counsellor with many years experience working with adults and young people.  I provide a service that is centred round your needs and supports you back to you.

My expertise includes a Person-Centred Approach which provides space 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. I also use tools such as Timeline, which helps you process your unique story giving you a deeper understanding of how your life experiences influence your self-concept.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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).

Client Feedback

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)
