Katie Baker BSc (Hons), MBACP
I work using an integrative model, which means that I draw on what feels right in the moment. This could be verbal interaction or creative expression. I am a guide to your own knowledge about yourself as I believe each individual holds the answers to their own healing.
We all develop ways to protect ourselves even if they don't serve us well. I believe in creating new ways of being to replace dysfunctional armour rather than just chipping away at your protections which could leave you vulnerable.
I offer a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space and work to the BACP Ethical Guidelines. I offer both long-term and short-term counselling.

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.

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 proceed, 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.
