About me

I am an Integrative counsellor who has a great deal of experience working with individuals on the autism spectrum, helping clients feel as safe and grounded as possible and letting them take the lead in their own therapy. Once clients have settled into the counselling environment, I help my clients to clarify exactly what their issues look and feel like to them (for no two clients experience issues the same way) and to discover the person who is underneath--the strong individual who has survived all life has thrown at them, and who doesn't need to be defined by their struggles. With time and care, clients can learn to take care of themselves, and use what they learn in counselling to greatly improve their ways of life. Sometimes, counselling can be a bit like a rollercoaster, and so Katharine takes things slow and steady, making sure her clients are supported through both the ups and the downs of their journey.

I work with clients that maybe struggling with anxiety, depression or generally feeling a bit sad or low

I initially do a initial consultation of 20 minutes in which I charge £15 and then organise a full session of 50 minutes

If you are currently finding things more difficult, please get in touch.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

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.
