Katie Page (MBACP)
Hi there, and thank you for visiting my profile. I am a highly caring and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist (MBACP). I am here to help you find a way through what is feeling difficult for you, and help you find greater resilience and positivity. Together we will find a way to explore the hidden meanings behind the difficulties you have experienced or are experiencing, where our work together will bring you greater emotional self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-enlightenment. When you have greater understanding around what is hurting you, it is easier to develop the emotional tools to help you cope better, view yourself or your difficult situation with more positivity and overcome those negative thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back from enjoying your true potential.
When you are feeling stuck with difficult emotions, it can feel challenging to admit the depth of how these negative and difficult feelings are affecting you, your relationships, work and your mental health. Are you fearful about where your emotional problems might be heading and feel unable to talk to anyone? Are you worried that your fears, painful emotions and genuine anguish may be treated with negativity, without sensitivity or understanding, or feel you might be stigmatised for not being able to cope?
The pain of losing a loved one is something you can never be prepared for as the reality of loss is intangible until it happens as the relationship you had with your loved one was completely unique to the two of you. The emotional weight of your loss can feel very similar to a rock being thrown into a pond - the ripples of your grief grow stronger long before they fade, depending on the how heavy that rock is, and how hard it hits the water, leaving you feeling you may never inch past that initial, all consuming, raw pain of loss.
Grief support has been proven to help. Talking about the your loss, and the depth of your grief, can help you explore the impact on your emotional reactions. I am an experienced grief counsellor who is compassionate and who truly understands the bereavement process and the ensuing emotional chaos that it brings.
I know it can feel quite daunting to really open up about what is affecting you, and trust that what you say is truly listened to, understood and accepted with compassionate warmth, empathic sensitivity and honest open-mindedness. This is where I can help.
Over the past 7 years I have helped many adults and young people from all different walks of life by offering deep, insightful counselling and psychotherapeutic support with warmth, care and empathy. I am non-judgemental and I experience everyone I meet, and work with, as unique and wonderful individuals. I know that each client I meet has their own unique story that is waiting to be heard and truly valued.
I believe the answers to your pain lie within your life story, and it is my role to accompany you as tell your story and facilitate a release of your pain through my understanding of you, offering you my reflective thoughts, feelings and observations, and by helping you find a new, and deeper, self-insight. In turn, these help you delve deeper than you have before and can help you gain a truer and more meaningful understanding of yourself and how your feelings and negative thoughts may be affecting you.
By working collaboratively, we can unlock the truly unique individual you are, where your feelings are no longer so painful and you are able to engage in life, love and laughter again.
I am passionate about helping clients who have been feeling stuck with the pain of anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, suicide ideation and mental health issues, bringing you towards a lighter, brighter and more balanced day-to-day equilibrium where it is possible to face the day ahead with more confidence, more self-esteem and greater positivity.
I have helped clients who have been struggling with emotional, physical, psychological and sexual abuse, rape, forced marriage, difficult and painful childhood experiences, work related stress and anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss and relationship difficulties.
My counselling and psychotherapeutic practice is based in a beautiful counselling room that offers calm, safety and peaceful serenity. It is a therapeutic space that is away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, where everything that is spoken about is treated with honesty, trust and confidentiality.
