About me

Hello, my name is Kate. I offer you a warm, safe, confidential space, free of judgement in which to work therapeutically. 

My counselling covers a wide range of issues including anxiety and depression, trauma, bereavement as well as working with clients who want to talk through difficult situations.

I will help you explore and understand the feelings which have been causing you to feel anxious and depressed.  I may introduce different counselling techniques into our sessions if I believe this will unblock emotions which are buried or stuck. My aims are to provide you with my support and care, to ensure you feel listened to and understood. My intention is to help you find a calmer mind  so you can experience more joy in your future.

Client Testimonies

 Names of clients are kept confidential
"As a counsellor, Kate is fantastic-and of equal importance she is also a truly kind and compassionate person. I found myself going through a difficult time and decided to seek help through counselling. It ended up being the best decision I could have ever made, and Kate helped me deal with difficulties I was facing through both attentive listening and thought-provoking questions. She was able to effectively create an environment where I felt safe to talk about my feelings and emotionally open up, it was a very healthy experience and one which I have learned a great deal from! Whether you are facing a challenging time in your life, or simply want someone to talk to, I would highly recommend Kate."

"I spent a while with Kate, she is easy to talk to and helps make you feel very comfortable more or less straight away. Kate is in my opinion very good at what she does. She listens to every word you say. I would recommend Kate to anyone that’s looking for a honest, kind hearted, caring and genuine person to help with whatever issues they are needing within their lives."

Training, qualifications & experience

From my background in teaching to my career as a counsellor, confidence and self-esteem have always been apparent to me as the most crucial tools for life.

I've worked with people who have experienced the full range of challenges from serious traumatic events to consistent anxious or depressive moods. I have often found that talking therapy when paired with everyday self-care is the most effective way to find stable, positive mental health.


I began my career in teaching children in 1992 which I enjoyed for many years before moving to the the Health and Social Services Department in supporting young families. I've been working as an independent counsellor since 2020.

Member organisations

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.
