Katherine Hunt (MBACP)
I am an experienced, professionally qualified integrative counsellor. I offer a welcoming and a non judgemental, safe and confidential space to share, explore and understand your thoughts and feelings; whilst gaining an understanding of your inner world. I believe that everyone has the answers for their problems within themselves and that counselling is not about giving advice but about giving voice to your situation. With support you can understand, unravel and release problems; working them through to find a point of resolution or acceptance.
My style is integrative, this means that I combine different psychotherapeutic approaches in order to adapt to client individual needs. As each person and relationship is unique, I do not use a 'one-size-fits-all' approach, instead I tailor the way I work to the requirements and preferences of each individual. My work is influenced by psychodynamic theory; person centred theory, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and the attachment theory.
Prior to running my own counselling & advocate service, I have supported clients in Windsor & Maidenhead Counselling Services one day a week, and also work as a volunteer counsellor with addictions in Hayes.
Providing support to people with a wide range of mental health issues from anxiety, trauma and addictions has given me an understanding of the isolation felt by many experiencing mental health problems, and confirmed how important it is to talk about them.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and all of my clinical work is governed by the BACP's Ethical Framework.

When are sessions?
Counselling sessions are usually weekly. I offer both short-term and long-term work. I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments and appointment time can be discussed when we meet. There is no set amount of sessions - the amount of sessions depends on your needs.
What should I expect?
After our initial telephone conversation, we can make an appointment to meet if that feels right. In our first session we can explore what has brought you to counselling and then you can decide whether you would like us to continue working together.
If you have more questions ...
Please feel free to telephone or email me.
I can answer any queries that you might have and discuss whether counselling might help.
