About me

I have 25 years experience as a counsellor, psychotherapist and couples counsellor. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and creative space to explore whatever is bothering you; leading to better coping with difficult experiences, changes in behaviours & attitudes, the resolution of problems and the development of resources for a more enriching life.

Your present experience, besides holding the influences of your past, also holds the seeds of your future growth and potential. In addition to finding the courage and resources to change in ways that suit their values and situation, clients often gain greater peace of mind and more satisfying relationships.

Couples counselling can help you repair relationships blighted by vicious arguments, affairs, mistrust, sexual issues, control or a deadening growing apart.  Working with me can set your relationship back on course for better, more fulfilling times; or it can ease the difficulties of a breakup.

You can book an initial session to meet with me, to say something about what has led you to consider psychotherapy or couples counselling and to find out more how we might work together, should we decide to do so. I would be delighted to hear from you. There is also more information on my website www.katrinavoysey.com and facebook pages.

I offer reduced fee sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started counselling in 1994 working with victims of crime and with people facing bereavement and then soon broadened out to offer psychotherapy for all sorts of issues. My many years of experience and personal development allow me to be compassionate and open to a very wide range of human experience. I have counselled couples since 2008. 

I graduated from the Spectrum psychotherapy training and am a Registered Member of the BACP. I work humanistically and integratively and offer clients the opportunity to use the arts, creativity and contact with nature. 

Humanistic psychotherapy aims to empower and equip you to be your best self and to be able to enjoy your life. This benefits yourself, those around you and often the wider world. 

Integrative psychotherapy means I will draw on (or integrate) other approaches - such as NLP, the Transpersonal, Ecopsychology and CBT - when these will benefit you and our work. 

If using the arts, creativity and contact with nature, you do not need to have any special skills: just a willingness to explore methods that often provide new answers or ways of looking at your problems.

My initial Spectrum psychotherapy graduation in 2001, required completion of more than 900 curriculum hours at Spectrum spread over seven years, and by that stage I had also done an additional 900 training hours, at other institutions.   I have continued my personal and professional development every year since, with many, many hours of further training.  Rather than list it exhaustively here, you can ask me for particular details if you are interested.

My couples training included that offered by the PAIRS Foundation - one of the world's oldest and leading relationship skills training organizations, offering evidence-based best practices. I have also trained with the Couples Institute, so as to take account of the problems that can naturally develop at different stages of a relationship and those due to attachment styles and sexual issues.

I started my working life in marketing management and consumer insight for large blue-chip multi-nationals, moving into being an account director and market research consultant.  I have also written fiction and poetry, led creative writing and storytelling workshops, co-founded a playback theatre company, have lived abroad and I am the mother of two children.
I lead support groups, offer training and answer calls on a national helpline.

Member organisations

BACP

Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Group psychotherapy, parenting, family issues, sexual issues, birth trauma and post-natal depression (can bring pre-crawling babies), phobias, low self esteem, counselling parents to use CBT interventions with their primary school-aged anxious or phobic child.

Fees

My full fee is £60 and I appreciate that not everyone will find that affordable. So as to make my work available to more people, I offer that you can pay between £20-£60. How much you pay is based on trust, not on a means test. However I may discuss your fee amount with you if you seem to paying significantly more or less than you can afford. The session lasts 55 minutes.

Further information

Pre-crawling babies are welcome to attend sessions.  It allows psychotherapy and counselling to be more accessible to new parents or to couples.  I have experience of this working well.  For more information, see my website FAQ section  http://www.katrinavoysey.com/page/page/4442204.htm

I also offer "Walk and Talk" sessions for individual clients where we walk with awareness in the countryside.  This can be calming, restorative and shed new light on your problems. 

At my Coulsdon location there is ample free parking, or I am a five minute walk from a railway station and ten minutes walk from a bus stop.  My Banstead location is opposite a bus-stop with parking nearby.
