Kathy O'Connor MBACP
I am an experienced Counsellor working in Uxbridge, Middlesex, and I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I consider the Client / Counsellor relationship to be key and offer a person-centred therapeutic approach. I have worked with Clients on many issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and domestic violence. I also have areas of particular experience including bereavement and working with adolescents.
Involvement with Macmillan Cancer Support has facilitated my greater knowledge and understanding of bereavement and allows me to support Clients as they struggle with loss. Working for Kidscape and Kids Can Achieve, with a focus on young people, enhances my initial Counselling work which was undertaken at LINK, a local Young Persons Centre.
I offer Clients a safe and confidential space to explore whatever difficulties they may be experiencing in life, together with acceptance, warmth and a non-judgemental manner. I offer both short and long term counselling.
