About me

Hello, my name is Kate Collenette. I am a qualified counsellor offering a safe and confidential space, free of judgement, in which to work therapeutically. I work in an integrative way bringing empathy, warmth, realism and, where appropriate, humour into the room. My aim is to provide support and care and ensure you feel valued and are listened to and understood. 

Training, qualifications & experience

BA (hons) in Education with English and Drama

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling CPCAB

Individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy   

Working for Guernsey Counselling Service

My counselling journey has made me aware of how crucial talking therapy is as a part of every day sef-care as well as essential in helping us experience good mental health. I began my career in teaching children which I enjoyed for many years. I then worked for the Health and Social Services Department in supporting young families. I completed Levels 2 and 3 in counselling studies then progressed to achieving a Diploma.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
