Hello my name is Kathy.
Perhaps you are going through a life crisis or suffering from depression and anxiety. Or you could be trying to adapt to new circumstances having experienced a bereavement, divorce, or facing redundancy.
Knowing that there is someone there to listen and understand you, can bring great relief, helping you to cope better than you might do on your own.
Exploring your thoughts and feelings in relation to difficulties you might be experiencing helps you to develop insight and understanding about yourself, your relationships, and your life events.
As a Person Centred counsellor it is my belief that people who come for counselling are experts in their own lives. My aim is to provide you with a safe, secure, and confidential setting while supporting you as you move toward regaining control of your life.
I offer both Individual counselling and Couples Counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
