Katie Brent MBACP Accredited, FdSc, BSc (hons), Partner at The Practice
When darkness falls it can be hard to see our way through, we can lose sight of who we are and what we want for our lives. I believe that in these moments there is nothing more valuable than truly being with another. My way of working is to provide a safe, accepting space where you feel truly seen and heard. Here I can help you to explore the past, understand your present and direct your future.
I am a fully qualified and experienced BACP Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor committed to providing you with a secure and confidential space to facilitate growth and change. My approach involves working through the therapeutic relationship itself, drawing on a variety of techniques to adapt to the individual needs of the client. This might include techniques from psychodynamic, person centred, mindfullness, and solution focused therapies. It is through our relationships that we understand who we are and how we relate to others and the world. I therefore believe that, in order to change and grow, the therapeutic relationship is key.
I currently work privately as part of 'The Practice' in Weybridge as well as Cranleigh School and YMCA in Horsham, where i have worked with a wide range of issues including bereavement, anxiety, bullying, depression, self harm, body image issues, relationship difficulties and anger management. My past experience also includes working in Heathside school, Westfield GP surgery and charities such as Kingston Bereavement Service.
Whatever you are going through, you do not have to be alone. To talk to me in confidence for a free telephone consultation or to arrange a meeting call me on 07548 171173 or email me using the link above.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
