About me

Hello, I'm Katharine, I'm a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor (since 2013) working in private practice.

I am passionate about making better mental health and wellbeing something accessible for all. I have experience of and/do work with a vast array of mental health issues, yet seeing the person holistically rather than as a 'mental health condition' is so important in how I work.

I have worked with a wide variety of issues from historical abuse, relationship breakdown/couples, depression, anxiety, trauma, intrusive thoughts, personality disorders, eating disorders and many more. I specialise in working creatively, practically, holistically with my client to find their unique way forward.

I offer a free initial telephone session for any queries or questions.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
