About me

Highly qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor working with adults/couples/young people and organisations. I have a degree in Humanistic Counselling and became accredited with BACP (British Association in Counselling and Psychotherapy) in 2006. I have run my own practice for a number of years and am available during the day and some evenings.

I offer both short and long term individual therapy. Short term can be six to twelve sessions and tends to focus on a particular issue. Brief therapy can show a highly successful outcome with positive changes. I have helped many people overcome their difficulties and move forward in their lives.

Longer term therapy allows a broader focus. I can help you with longstanding problems where together we can open up a space where you can make meaning of your life.

My initial consultation is free of charge which gives you a chance to find out a little about me and how I work.   I can help you with many issues such as bereavement, substance and alcohol abuse, life changes, relationships and depression.  Often many problems can stem from one main problem and I enjoy helping people understand themselves. After all, if I feel angry I need to understand why before I can manage it.

I have found that some people only need a few sessions before they feel better and my aim is to help you move forward as quickly as possible.

I have had experience of helping people, both young and old, many with serious problems. Together we can usually work through painful feelings or fears.

I also offer counselling supervision to other therapists who are welcome to contact me to find out more. www.kateharmarcounselling.co.uk

Supervision & training

Sometimes as counsellors we can feel pushed and pulled in many directions and everything feels as if it is put into question.  I work with counsellors with many different levels of experience, many working towards  a counselling qualification. I aim to enable you to value your own ideas and feelings through discussion and exploration, so you can become more confident in the way you practice.
