Kathryn Slattery - Talk to Kat Counselling Dip Couns. MBACP
At times in our lives, life can feel a bit too much, it can get complicated and overwhelming and you find yourself needing someone to listen to you, to understand you and provide support. I'm here to offer these to you and more, so let's talk!
I will talk with you, listen to you and support you to understand where you want to go, who you want to be and how to get there. It’s important to me that you feel valued, understood and safe to explore your thoughts and feelings, to help you make positive steps to move forward in your life the way you choose.
The decision to come to counselling can be nerve wracking and frightening but can also be the first step to bringing understanding and change to your life to get you back to the you that you want to be.
You can contact me via e-mail or telephone and we can arrange a brief consultation to talk about what you want from counselling and what I can offer and you can then decide if you want to book your first session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with a range of clients of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds who have presented issues including (but not limited to) Depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, domestic violence, bereavement and loss, perfectionism, low self-esteem/confidence, long term illness, relationship difficulties and life transitions.
I have experience counselling for universities as well as domestic violence and bereavement charities.
Recently, I have undertaken training with the Foundation for Infant Loss, developing my skills in grief and trauma surrounding pregnancy and infant loss.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
For the COVID-19 period, sessions cost £40 for a 50 minute session.
I am based in Cardiff at the Samye Foundation and also in Barry, where I have a room at the Sky Spa Wellness Centre. However, due to COVID-19, sessions are being held via telephone until it is safe to return to the counselling room.
