About me

Hi – I’m Kathie and I'm here to listen and understand what’s brought you to counselling.  

Maybe anxiety or the fear of a panic attack is stopping you from living the life you want to.

Maybe you’re suffering from depression or feeling really sad and have lost the motivation to do the things you used to enjoy.  

Perhaps you have low self esteem or lack self-confidence and find yourself avoiding situations where you have to meet new people.  

Perhaps you find yourself getting angry and its causing family issues or getting in the way of your relationships.

Counselling is a safe, confidential space where you can explore these things with someone who won’t judge you.  

I work either face to face in Sevenoaks, online or by telephone. 

I work with clients experiencing a variety of issues, including anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, bereavement and loss, anger and relationship issues.  

Making the decision to discuss your issues with a counsellor can be a big step and one which will lead to increased self-awareness, helping you to make changes in areas of your life that no longer serve you well. I would like to take that journey with you. 

It’s good to have the support of friends and family but sometimes our feelings can be overwhelming and we need more support.  Talking with a counsellor who is impartial can help us to work through some of the confusion we feel.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and continue to undertake regular further training to continue my professional development.

As well as private practice, I work for a charity in Belvedere, Kent, offering low cost counselling. 

I work with clients experiencing a variety of issues, including anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, depression, bereavement and loss, anger and relationship issues.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Member organisations

BACP

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.
