About me

Katharine Milazzo, Chartered Counselling Psyhologist

The Nest – Psychology and Counselling Services

The Nest – Psychology and Counselling Services is run by Katharine Milazzo, Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and private space to talk about your concerns and difficulties. The Nest is a bright, quiet and comfortable ground floor building located in Perth city centre.

Qualifications, Training and Experience

The majority of my training and experience has been in the NHS where I have worked with a range of different client groups and problems. I have worked in primary and secondary care as well as in various specialist services. For example, for people with post traumatic stress disorder, alcohol misuse, and eating disorders. I have also worked in the voluntary and private sector as a psychologist specialising in pre and post natal support.

I have been fully qualified as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist since 2007. My qualification has provided me with a particular combination of skills; the specialist mental health training of an applied psychologist and the listening expertise of a counsellor.

I am trained and experienced in a number of therapeutic models:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Person Centred Therapy

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)

I also use various tools and concepts from other psychotherapeutic models:

Psychodynamic psychotherapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Solution Focussed Therapy

Schema Therapy

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy  (DBT)

Training, qualifications & experience

My background includes working in various roles in the mental health services in the NHS, and my professional training was based in the NHS in a variety of settings and with people with a range of needs, including children and families. I have also worked with pregnant women and new mums individually and in groups outside the NHS in different organisations in Perth and Edinburgh.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
