Kathryn Lees (BSc, MSc, BACP member)
It can be exceptionally tough to start looking for therapy, and I'm proud of you for doing so today.
My name is Kathryn and I'm a person-centred and experiential psychotherapist. That means that my style of counselling is to keep your wants and needs at the centre of all of our sessions together. We will work as a team, and work together to get you where you want to be in life. If you are looking for somewhere to create meaning in your life, you are feeling lost or hopeless, or you are seeking emotional support, please get in touch.
As both a practicing therapist and as someone who has healed and grown in therapy myself, I know how it feels to be in both chairs in the therapy office. I have experience of many of life's issues and have helped my clients through many more and, as such, I am ready to tackle any issues with you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I achieved a BSc in Psychology in 2011, passing with a 2:1 from the University of Nottingham. I then passed my MSc in Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in 2018.
I have worked in various mental health jobs, in the NHS and in private services, since 2007. As a psychotherapist I have volunteered hundreds of hours since 2011 with various counselling charities, including the National Self-Harm Network, Derby Counselling Centre, Derby Women's Centre, and Hull and East Riding Survivors.
I am an individual BACP member and I am working towards full UKCP accreditation. I follow their ethical guidelines as a practitioner.

Each 50 minute session is £40.
I especially encourage transgender, non-binary, and gender-questioning individuals to get in touch with me.
Here is how we can get started:
- Contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to say hello and see about setting up an initial session.
- Depending on what you’re most comfortable with, we can talk by email or phone to discuss any questions and, if you’re happy to, set up an initial session at a time that suits you.
- In our first session, we will talk about what you would like to get from therapy and what you expect. I will talk a little about the services I provide and what our therapeutic relationship might look like going forward.
- If we are happy to continue, we can set up a second session, and continue our sessions weekly or fortnightly.
All correspondences are treated with respect and confidentiality, and there are no obligations to continue.
