Katie Ginger (Ad. Dip. PsyC)
Counselling offers a non-judgemental space to explore what is going on for you. It is your space to talk about issues you may be experiencing or have experienced that are causing you pain, worry or you want to make sense of.
I work with an integrative approach which means you will always be at the centre of our sessions. My role within the session is to support you to explore what you feel you want to.
If you haven't experienced counselling before it can seem quite daunting or scary. The therapeutic relationship is also really important, this is why I offer a FREE 20 minute initial session for you to meet with me and ask any questions you may have.
I have experience of working with both young people and adults. I am fully qualified, insured and registered with the appropriate professional bodies.
Integrative counselling can be beneficial for many issues, some of which are below;
- Low self esteem
- Exploring Childhood experiences
- Feeling sad or low
- Understanding relationships
- Family issues
- Loss of Identity

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.
