Katharine Carpenter - KC Psychotherapy. BSc(hons), DipPsyc, MBACP
My name is Katharine and I am a fully qualified and registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a number of years of experience.
Life can feel extremely difficult sometimes, particularly in the world we currently find ourselves in. Therapy gives you a safe place to explore, understand and work towards a resolution to any difficulties you may find yourself experiencing.
The most successful therapy tends to come through building a trusting relationship with your therapist. I am here for you as an approachable, professional and confidential support, to work with you every step of the way, to achieve your goals.
*Due to the current Coronavirus situation I am able to offer virtual therapy through zoom or over the telephone. Lets talk about what works for you.

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.
