Kathy Sutherland MBACP (Accred) UKRCP
I work with clients online and face to face, or a blended approach. I have completed a number of online training courses and am a member of ACTO (Ascociation of counsellors and therapists online) who are recognised by BACP.
I am an approachable and practical counsellor with a wide range of experience in different settings and with different issues I would be happy for you to get in touch to discuss what is troubling you at the moment. Your problems may seem small or they may feel overwhelming but if they are an issue to you then they are worth talking about.
I have particular experience in bereavement and loss, relationships issues, problems at work and people at a crossroads in their life, uncertainty and anxiety. I can also offer coaching and have worked in a number of business settings.
I also have a strong interest in problems arising from birth and parenting, including when things don’t go to plan (eg the death of a child, difficulties with pregnancy, premature birth or miscarriage) and difficult family relationships.
I see private clients www.cambridgecounsellingpractice.co.uk, and also work as a supervisor for counsellors and other people working in a supportive role
I work with individuals and couples and one-off sessions are sometimes available with me.
I am happy to work with young people over the age of 16.
Online sessions are currently available and face to face appointments will resume once it is considered safe for everyone to do this
