Hi I'm Kathy, Anxiety, stress and depression are difficult to live with whether they impact you on a daily basis or are linked to specific events. I help people just like you gain more freedom and happiness so they can really enjoy life with confidence.
Taking the first step is tough but if you want help from a friendly, independent, non-judgemental trained counsellor, then please get in touch.
I can support you in finding your own solutions to difficult situations or challenges and have experience of helping people in many areas including bereavement, medical diagnosis, anxiety and depression, young people leaving home, workplace issues and relationship breakdowns.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their Ethical Framework.
My qualifications include a Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a Level 5 Diploma in Coaching and Mentoring, a Mediation in the Workplace qualification, an MSc in Human Resource Management and I'm a Chartered Member of the CIPD.
I have over ten years of experience of working in public and private organisations and in the charity sector. In addition to counselling, I undertake coaching and mentoring and workplace mediation.
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.
