About me

My name is Katie and firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my profile. 

My counselling work has been extensive in the areas of trauma, attachment, relationship issues and BPD/EUPD.

Taking those first steps into counselling can be sometimes confusing and I understand that you may have questions or you may be unsure as to what to do next. Below I have given you a brief understanding of how I work and what I can offer you.

How do you work?

I am an integrative one to one counsellor.

I offer face to face sessions in a room located at the bottom of my garden.

I offer remote sessions via telephone or online platforms using what's app video.

I will offer you a non judgemental, safe and confidential space for you to feel able to start exploring any issues you feel may be impacting on you and your life.

How often will our sessions be?

Our sessions will be for 50 minutes I offer sessions weekly or fortnightly.

How can I contact you?

You can contact me via email, text message or telephone - I will reply within 24 hours of your contact.

What happens next?

I understand that taking the steps into counselling can be at times daunting and cause a mixture of different emotions and questions....

I offer a 30 minute free initial telephone call to answer any questions you may have and to gain a deeper understanding of what you need from me and explore how we can work together. I will also explain what will happen in our first session together and moving forward.

Alternatively if you feel you do not want the telephone call you can book straight in for your first session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have ten years experience as a integrative counsellor, which means I am trained in different modalities of counselling. These being Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Person Centred and Transactional Analysis.

I blend these methods, which enables me to work with a range of issues as sometimes we are unable to identify what our issue is. It can also be difficult for us to say how we are feeling or even know what has got us to the place we are in at the moment.

Blending methods enables me to be able to give you the space to explore different areas of your life, ranging from your childhood to the here and now, to help you gain clarity and awareness of yourself and empower you to be able to move forward.

My experience has been:

  • Mixed addiction setting for eighteen months.
  • Female setting for three and a half years 
  • Male prison for three and a half years. 
  • Online work for one year.

I now work full time in my practice Kc counselling. 

Through my work I have gained experience working with a range of issues including

  • Trauma
  • Sexual, emotional and physical abuse
  • Personality disorders (mainly borderline personality disorder/emotionally unstable personality disorder)
  • Addiction
  • PTSD
  • Suicide
  • Self harm
  • Grief
  • Depression
  • Anxiety.

I work with attachment, by exploring and understanding your attachment style and working through and gaining awareness of your patterns in relationships. 

I have experience in pyschoeducation on a one to one basis and in a group setting. This helps to support you to explore and process your experiences to gain an understanding and awareness of your thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

Member organisations

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.
