About me

By reading my profile, you will learn about my credentials and experience. However, I think it is just as important to know about a therapists personal qualities as it is to know about their qualifications. I believe myself to be patient, kind, compassionate, trustworthy and entirely committed to being able to offer people a space and time that is their own in which to realise their true worth. I would be genuinely honoured if you would like me to be a part of your journey....

As the owner of The Person-Centre, I aim to provide a counselling service offering a safe, confidential and welcoming environment in which to explore your emotions and express yourself freely, without judgement, and within the boundaries of an honest and communicative therapeutic relationship.

In my experience, clients can feel anxious when thinking about speaking to a counsellor, and so it is important for you to choose someone that is right for you.

Remember, the counsellor is not the expert here... you are. For this reason, I will try to tailor the therapy to the individual. Sometimes what a person needs more than anything is to simply be heard, and I am a big advocate for the empowerment in this. Others may prefer an opportunity to express themselves in a more creative way. When we are lost for words, or feel disconnected from our emotions it can sometimes help to use other methods of communication to express ourselves, and so I have a range of creative tools such as art materials, sand tray and objects, marbles and crystals and nesting dolls which you are welcome to use if it feels right for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Prior to undertaking my training, I worked as a nanny for 18 years working with children from birth to 10 years.

Outside of my private practice I continue to work with children in secondary schools where I offer a counselling service to young people from ages 11-18yrs.

I am a qualified and insured member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am experienced in working with a broad range of presenting issues such as depression, bereavement, anxiety, self-harm, trauma, loss, abuse, anger, self-esteem, relationships and sexuality.

I have also undertaken specific training to work with adults struggling with addiction.

Further information

Taking the first step in contacting a counsellor can be a hugely daunting prospect. It may help to know that as counsellors, we have all taken that step too and I can remember how anxious I felt when I first picked up the phone.

Only you can decide if the time is right for you, and if it is, please do give me a call. I will be happy to talk to you about any questions, concerns or fears you may have, and from there, you can make the decision as to whether or not you would like to book in for an initial session.

Warm wishes, Katrina
