About me

Hello I am Kate, thank you for looking at my profile.  I believe that we are all experts on our own lives but we can sometimes benefit from someone listening attentively and without judgement to how things are and this can help us in finding our way. I work in Monday to Friday.  I have worked for Mind, Samaritans and The Practice MK.

Together we will work to grow your awareness of what is going on for you and how you would like to address the problems in your life. I offer appointments face-to-face as well as Zoom and telephone.

I am an integrative therapist; this means I will work with you in a range of ways to help you to make sense of what is happening for you. Together we can look at how to shape the therapy to your needs; we can explore what is happening in the present and how the past could be affecting how you feel now.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative counsellor (CPCAB Dip Therapeutic Counselling) and I am committed to ongoing professional development. I am an ACTO accredited telephone and online therapist.

I work with many issues but mainly with trauma as well as adults and young people with autism and ADHD. I also offer couples therapy. 

In addition I also work with LGBTQIA+ issues, in particular members of the trans and furry community. I am a kink aware therapist who offers a safe space for everyone.

I have a background of working with addiction both from the point of view of the addict as well as friends and family.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I offer a free 30 minute online or phone appointment before starting therapy to see if we both feel that we can work together.  I strongly believe that not all therapists will work for all clients and so I feel this is really important.

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.

The Quaker Centre is fully wheelchair accessibly but Bodhi Space in Olney is not.
