Katie Brent MBACP Accredited, FdSc, BSc (hons), Partner at The Practice
'Relationship is the first condition of being human' (Clarkson, 2003).
It is through relationships that we develop who we are and how we relate to others. I believe our earliest attachments are crucial in our psychological development and continue to influence all aspects of our lives. Ingrained dysfunctional patterns can be re-lived over and over without our awareness and can leave us feeling confused, angry and depressed.
At these times we may 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 calm, safe, accepting space where you feel truly seen and heard in your struggle. Here I can help you to explore and process past wounds to provide insight into your present situation and empower you to take control of your future.
As an experienced BACP Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor I am able to utilise a wide range of approaches to adapt to a clients individual needs. This includes techniques from psychodynamic, person centred, mindfullness, and solution focused therapies.
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, relationship difficulties and anger management. My past experience also includes working in Heathside school, Westfield GP surgery and charities such as Kingston Bereavement Service.
