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.
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.
