About me

Hello. I'm Kathryn and welcome to Queslett Counselling. I hope you find what you are looking for.

  • How counselling and psychotherapy can help you...

When things happen to us and to others in our life, we can lose our way and it’s hard to know what to do or how to live. We can feel very helpless and alone.

I will offer you a calm, reassuring presence and the ability to be with you amidst chaos, sadness and grief or when life just feels out of balance. I will walk your journey with you, no matter how difficult or frightening this may seem.

  • What you can expect from me...

During our sessions, I will listen to you without judgement and accept you for who you are. By supporting you with care and compassion, you can gain greater insight into your life and be empowered to find a way through your distress.                           I work from what is known as a ‘person-centred’ approach which means, given the right environment, you will be able to feel more comfortable with yourself and become the person you are truly meant to be. Sometimes, I may use concepts from other approaches to help our understanding of what is going on for you.

  • Counselling and Psychotherapy at Queslett Counselling

I offer face to face counselling and psychotherapy at Queslett Counselling with on-drive parking, ground floor access and excellent public transport links. I also provide online and telephone sessions. The therapy I offer is open ended. However, if you would prefer an agreed number of sessions, we can discuss this during your initial session.

  • What happens in the initial session?

This is an opportunity for us to meet each other and for you to share with me what's going on for you. We will look at what you would like to get from counselling and how we could work together to achieve this. I will answer any questions or concerns you might have. I will ask you about your history to help me understand what's happened to you and where you are now.

If you are drawn towards working with me or you would like to find out more, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member (MBACP) of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical framework.

Qualifications include;

  • BSc First Class Honours Counselling
  • Foundation Degree (Distinction) Integrative Counselling
  • Extensive continuous professional development in many areas including grief and loss, trauma and relationship issues.

I have worked with clients facing many different issues over the last few years in a variety of settings.

My professional background has always involved listening and helping others find their way through various challenges. This has given me a valuable foundation for counselling work and the ability to sensitively stay with clients experiencing distress and difficulties in their life.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
