About me

Hello I’m Katie, a skilled therapist specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Counselling, Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). I have over 13 years experience working with Anxiety disorders, Depression, OCD, PTSD, low self esteem, including Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety (GAD), Social Anxiety, Specific Phobias, addictions, emotional regulation issues, relationship issues and attachment issues. (Full list is detailed below)

I offer a warm, non judgemental space where you can safely discuss your difficulties at your pace. As everyone's stories are unique we work collaboratively together forming a bespoke treatment plan which includes specific interventions targeted at treating your issue(s).

During the first session I undertake a full assessment of needs in order to tailor the therapy to you and make any further recommendations.

My approach is integrative; Counselling with CBT. This approach naturally builds a strong therapeutic relationship and allows space to practice tools taught which helps foster long lasting change in the individual. I recommend weekly sessions for therapy to be most effective.

I currently offer the following platforms of therapy:

  • video sessions via Zoom and WhatsApp video
  • telephone sessions.

I understand that finding the right therapist is an important part of the therapeutic process therefore I provide a free initial 10-15 minute phone consultation to discuss how we can work together effectively and how therapy can help.

I offer some concessions and details of these can be discussed at initial consultation. Please contact me if you are interested in therapy via email or text to discuss further. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I was awarded a 1st class BSC Hons. Degree in Counselling Studies; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I graduated in 2014.

I am a registered member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. Membership ID 376167.

I am a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) 2020.

I have 13 years experience working with adults from underprivileged, offending backgrounds with complex issues. I have worked in substance misuse services, mental health services within the healthcare services and alongside the NHS in the community and in prisons in London. I am experienced in treating individuals with more than one mental health diagnosis. I have worked for many years with individuals who have experienced trauma and loss presenting with depression, anxiety and anger issues. Many of these people used drugs and alcohol to escape their issues and found it only led to more problems and often resulted in crime and prison. I find it incredibly rewarding when I can support an individual to address their issues and make lasting changes in their life.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
