About me

Hello, my name is Kathy and I work from home in the Vale of Belvoir as a person centred counsellor and supervisor. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and work within their professional and ethical guidelines.

I have a comfortable and dedicated room for counselling with ensuite facilities and own entrance. My room is on the ground floor and has wheelchair access. If you would prefer I am also able to travel and visit you at home for a small additional fee to cover my petrol costs.

I work with children, young people, adults, & couples. The best way to decide if I am the right counsellor or supervisor for you is to speak to me on the telephone, or to arrange a free, no obligation, meeting of usually around 30-40 minutes.

I am happy to offer individual supervision to qualified or trainee counsellors. I am also keen to offer facilitation of supervision groups.

I am also able to offer educational services, including presenting at conference & workshop facilitation. Please contact me to discuss.

Training, qualifications & experience

My background is in nursing, and as a qualified nurse I worked within the NHS for over thirty years. I am currently employed by Derby University as a Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I combine this role with my private counselling practice.

I have a first class honours degree in Humanistic Counselling and a distinction at Masters level in Trauma Studies, both from the University of Nottingham. I am also a qualified supervisor, with a diploma in supervision. I have a postgraduate certificate in working with children and young people and in Focusing.

I have attended further training in working creatively with clients, working with anxiety and depression, sexuality, domestic violence, self harm and suicide, loss and grief, childhood sexual abuse, safeguarding and child protection, mindfulness, and counselling and the law.

I volunteered for 4 years for ISAS (Incest and Sexual Abuse Survivors) and I was a volunteer counsellor and board member for Counselling Xtra in Nottingham for 3 years. I have worked as a consultant in mediation with a local company. I am trained and experienced in group therapy. My research interests include psychological trauma following miscarriage and stillbirth, person centred education, and reflective practice of counselling students.
