Kathy Rose MA MBACP (Accred), MA Intergrative Psychotherapy and Counselling
I am an accredited member of the BACP. I am passionate about the healing power of counselling and psychotherapy and the capacity of the human psyche to heal, develop and grow. This belief, coupled with my training and experience, underpins how I work.
If you have been diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder, anxiety disorder or panic disorder; are feeling emotional pain or distress, feeling stuck; find yourself repeating patterns; feeling confused; lacking a sense of direction or needing an emotional sounding board, then investing in counselling or psychotherapy can be life enriching.
The process of counselling and therapy can help with: healing emotional wounds of the past; making sense of ourselves and our place in the world; understanding how we relate to others and help with change which can be life transforming.
I have a high level of experience working with people suffering from low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues and work place stress. I can help with many underlying causes of emotional pain and challenging life situations.
What to expect when you make contact: The first contact by either telephone, email or text will give you a chance to ask me any questions you may have about my qualifications, experience and how I work. You will be able to explain briefly what you would like help with and I will explain about what to expect at your initial appointment should you wish to book one.
At the first appointment: The first meeting is a two way process. It will be an opportunity to talk about any symptoms you may be having and what is going on in your life which has led you to seek help. I will be assessing your clinical need and you will be assessing me and discovering how I work; if the fit feels right and you feel comfortable with me, we can make further appointments.
Areas of special interest: As well as having an interest in working in the areas mentioned above (low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship and work place issues) I have particular interest in working with experience of trauma, issues of identity, sexuality and how we are impacted by illness and disease.
My approach is integrative which means I draw on several different theoretical approaches to support my work. I have received training in the following approaches: Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Existential, CBT, Somatic Body Work and Brief term work. I also work in a client centred (or humanistic) way which means that I work differently with everyone because each of us and our needs and experiences are unique. I have experience and knowledge of the 12 step programme of recovery and have also been trained and worked with a National Bereavement Support Charity.
I am a registered provider with BUPA, Aviva, Vitality, Cigna, and Helix Health Services Ltd.
