Kathy Jaloussis BSc., Adv. Dip., MBACP Accredited & Supervisor
Whether it is for a specific issue, you just feel the need to talk, or it is something that has been ongoing, Counselling offers you the support and space you may need.
Kathy provides short term, time-limited, long term and open ended therapy to children, young people and adults in a safe, nurturing and non-judgemental space where together you can explore the difficulties you are currently experiencing. As a Counsellor, she will help you find understanding and ideally you will be more aware of what is going on in your internal world and life.
Kathy is a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor based in Twickenham, South West London. She completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology in 2002 and enhanced her training and experience in this field with an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling Therapy as well as Specialist Training in Counselling Children. She has also completed a Diploma in Integrative Supervision. From her training at the Mindfulness Institute, she has incorporated mindfulness practice within her therapy work for various issues including anxiety, sleeplessness, exam stress, anger, bullying, stress, low mood and general wellbeing.
She is an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abides by its ethics and code of practice. Kathy is on the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register for Counsellors and Psychotherapists registered with BACP and she has been Chairperson of a Network Group through the BACP.
The support of friends and family can be comforting, however talking to a trained professional means you can explore things on a deeper level to help you understand why we do the things we do and feel the way we feel. With this, there is an opportunity and choice of change.
Prior to becoming a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor, Kathy worked with Children, Young People and Families for over 13 years and therefore she has an intuitive approach to the needs of children, young people, couples and individuals.
Kathy works as a Counsellor for Children and Young People and does Counselling and Psychotherapy with adults and Supervision with trainee and qualified Counsellors both individually and in a group. She has worked in primary schools and secondary schools, Kings College Hospital Psychotherapy Department, West London Centre for Counselling and for the NHS in Health Centres in the Hounslow and Richmond borough. Kathy has also worked in a Mediation Centre counselling children and young people of parents who are coming to the end of their marital relationship. Kathy has a wide range of experience working with different issues within these age groups and has worked with much difference and diversity of people.
Individual Counselling & Psychotherapy
You may have an ongoing issue from anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, abuse or low mood or you may be in particular circumstances such as work related stress, relationship issues, family issues, bullying etc. where you feel you need some support and therapeutic input. This is something that can be discussed with Kathy in the first session when you talk to Kathy about what is going on for you.
Counselling for Children and Young People
Children and Young People go through many feelings and emotions about different things that they experience in their lives whether it is bereavement, sibling rivalry, self-harm, friendships, low self-esteem, confidence, relationship with parents or other relationship issues and exam pressures to name a few. Using talking therapy, metaphor and play, Kathy provides a space and opportunity to process their feelings without the pressure of having to talk if they do not wish to. There would be an initial phone consultation which would be conducted with the parent to get an understanding of what is worrying the child.
A 50 minute therapy session is generally conducted on a weekly basis from Kathy's private practice in Twickenham TW2, South West London.
The duration of the first session also called the assessment session is 50 minutes where Kathy will gain a better understanding of what is going on for you, what has brought you to counselling and what you feel are the main issues. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions and discuss how Kathy works and how you will work together.
Kathy offers group Supervision and one to one Supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists from trainee level through to qualified Counsellors. Kathy works integratively where she primarily builds a relationship of trust that allows her to work with unconscious processes at the therapists level of development and experience.
Kathy is available to have a free initial phone consultation about Counselling or Supervision. You can also visit www.kjaloussiscounselling.co.uk for further information about Kathy.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
