About me

Katie Baker BSc (Hons), MBACP

We all develop ways to protect ourselves, even when they don't serve us well. If you feel you want to create new ways of being to replace the armour that no longer serves you, we can make that journey together. If you feel that you're not living to your full potential or that you're never really heard, supported or understood, if anxiety is ever present, you don't need to be alone as we can explore all this together. If your mind is an endless cycle of thoughts keeping you awake at night, expressing your thoughts in a safe environment can bring them into the open for you to examine from a different perspective.  I believe each person holds the answers to their own healing. Part of my work involves learning to listen to the physical body as it speaks our emotional distress. I offer a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space in which to explore the path to your true self.

I offer both long-term and short-term counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Next Step

I would book you in for an initial assessment, which gives you the opportunity to explore what has brought you to counselling.  If we agree to work together, we then book a regular day and time for your weekly sessions and go through the contract. We will review the process on a regular basis to ensure we are working well together.
