About me

Katie Lawton BA Hons, Dip. Counselling, MBACP

They key to any successful therapy is to build a trusting relationship between a therapist and a client. I am here to listen and to help you explore your thoughts and feelings, which can sometimes feel confusing and overwhelming. I offer a secure, non judgemental, professional and confidential environment where we work together to try and make sense of how you are feeling.

I hope that in building a relationship together, we will work to explore your feelings and ultimately enable you to take responsibility for yourself and your choices.

Training, qualifications & experience

My own life experience and my qualifications have given me the privilege of being able to offer you a place to share your thoughts and feelings in a professional and confidential environment.

I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have a background in working with adolescents and adults. I am trained in Integrative Humanistic counselling and I follow the BACP Ethical framework, with regular supervision to ensure that I am practicing safely and ethically. Alongside my private practice I also work for a Youth counselling charity based in Reading. I hold a current DBS Certificate.

I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts, relationship issues, OCD, Autism, eating disorders, stress and anger. You will have your own reasons for seeking counselling and the way you experience things will be personal to you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
