About me

Hello and welcome, my name is Katrina Young and my counselling service is called Key to You Counselling. I counsel people in Bristol, South Glos and North Somerset. I provide weekly counselling at your home, in a neutral space, phone and Skype.

I am always happy to help so please drop me a message.

I am currently a member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), following their ethical framework.

I understand that there are times when life can feel too much to handle, not knowing which way to turn or how to move forward. It can feel isolating and confusing, but it is important to know that you don't have to go through it alone and you can get support.

I will listen and empathise with you. I provide a non-judgemental environment where you can feel free to talk about your difficulties in a confidential space. I can support you in reflecting, exploring and understanding your difficulties, no matter how big or small. I will help you feel empowered to find your way forward and find the 'Key to You'.

I have supported people who have experienced many different difficulties such as anxiety, depression, work stress, relationship issues, loss and bereavements to name a few.

I also specialise in supporting people who have dyslexia, diagnosed and undiagnosed.  Having dyslexia myself, I can really empathise with how this difficulty can impact on our self-esteem, confidence and daily lives.

My Approach

I am an integrative/person-centred counsellor. I draw upon different approaches depending on your needs and what works for you.

About me

I describe myself as warm, friendly and down to earth person. I am caring and treat my clients as individuals.

I am a empathetic person and have always had a passion for supporting and helping people. I knew from a young age that I wanted to make a difference to peoples lives. I understand the value of having someone to talk to, someone who will listen so that people realise they are not alone.

If you would like to ask me any questions please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Soon I am going to be working for a charity supporting people who face loneliness and isolation, using CBT approach.

Before becoming a counsellor, I worked in health and social care and customer facing roles. I have particular experience with supporting people who self-injure, having volunteered as a Support Service Volunteer, providing non-judgemental support to women and girls affected by self-injury.
