Katie Cooling, MBACP (reg)
I am an experienced and qualified MBACP therapist, having provided services for groups and individuals for over 9 years.
I specialise in working with Borderline Personality Disorder (Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) and am highly experienced in the difficulties that come with this diagnosis and the symptoms of the disorder.
Whilst I specialise in BPD, I am far from limited to this one area and am experienced at working with many other difficulties including, generalised anxiety disorder, family issues, depression, stress, low confidence and bipolar disorder.
I provide a safe place for individuals to explore the struggles they are facing and using a person-centered approach I put those that access therapy at the heart of my approach.

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.
