About me

Hello,

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.

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.
