Katie Humphries COSRT (Accred) MBACP (Accred) ATSAC member
Hello, I provide counselling for individuals, and those in relationships. This maybe your first experience of counselling or you may have sought help in the past. Whatever your situation, counselling can often be the first step towards change, understanding and emotional wellbeing. Your first session is FREE with no obligation to continue.
I offer you the opportunity to talk and to explore any puzzles and concerns that may be affecting you, I am committed to providing effective counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment, free from judgement and expectation.
Whether you have something pressing you wish to explore or you are looking for more balance in your life, we can talk about what is important to you in a safe and confidential environment, using approaches and techniques that can adapt to your needs.
The relationship between the counsellor and the client is very important. Our first meeting is free, giving us the opportunity to decide whether the space I offer is appropriate to your needs. I work integratively, which means I work with flexibility, drawing on different theories and techniques which helps to meet the individual needs of clients.
I can offer both short term and longer term counselling. Your requirements can be talked through in more detail at our first meeting.

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.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.
