Kate Williams MBACP
Relationship Issues - Depressive Feelings - General Anxiety - Lack of Confidence - Anger. I offer Individual Counselling for Adults as well as Couples. It may be you carry an underlying sense of emptiness or unhappiness, this can lead to feelings of confusion, murkiness or internal conflict and you may just need help to unravel the tangle. Alternatively you may feel that you need to deal with a specific issue or trauma. If you are a couple experiencing relationship difficulties then please visit my website and go to the couples section for more detailed information.
How Can Counselling Work for You?
Psychodynamic Counselling is concerned with helping you gain a deeper understanding of your feelings, experiences and behaviour, past and present, conscious and unconscious. Sharing feelings, thoughts and fears can not only ease mental pain but also bring fresh insight, helping you to understand and make sense of things that may feel confusing. This can facilitate change and help you move forward in your life, particularly if you are feeling stuck.
Counselling may be an effective way of offering you the space to think about, explore and talk about issues that may be concerning you or affecting the quality of your life. This is offered in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

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.

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).
