Hi, I'm Katie and I work with adults and older teenagers who are experiencing difficulties in all areas of their lives. I combine lots of different therapeutic approaches to intuitively find what works best for you.
I will provide a warm, welcoming, non-judgemental, safe and confidential space for you to explore all parts of yourself without fear or judgement. At Chigwell Therapy Centre, you will experience a compassionate and safe space to allow you to explore different elements of yourself and your concerns.
I work with everyone individually to help you to find the best way for you, personally. I have experience around counselling for depression and anxiety, bereavement, relationships and self-confidence and extended training and experience around drugs, alcohol and cross-cultural issues.
Is counselling for you?
Are you experiencing a low mood, depression, panic or anxiety? Do you feel lost, with no one to talk to, no one who seems to understand? Maybe you feel a sense of shame or guilt, or low self esteem? Are you struggling with your confidence, friendships or relationships? If you are feeling scared, confused or alone, if you're struggling to keep a sense of normality or having difficulty managing your emotions, talking to someone might help.
I believe that individuals have the capacity to create amazing, inspiring changes in their lives, and I take a collaborative approach, working with you as an individual, to ensure the best possible outcome. I will do my best to listen to your thoughts and feelings, in order to understand the full story before exploring patterns and examining the issues at hand together.
Counselling will give you the space to examine your thoughts and work out what's best for you. Please visit my website (link above) for lots more information, testimonials and further information, and please feel free to call for a free initial conversation or to book an appointment; I look forward to working with you soon.

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.
