Katrina Young MBACP Registered
Hello and welcome
My name is Katrina Young and my counselling service is called Key to You Counselling. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Patchway, Bristol. I also offer home visits and telephone counselling.
Working as an Integrative therapist means that I have a good understanding of how to help clients through life’s many up and downs with a flexible skillset, whereby our sessions are tailored to suit you, as the individual. For example, we might decide that using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques could be helpful in tackling your anxiety, or perhaps working more creatively could be the ‘Key to You’!
Whichever approach we employ, my work is underpinned by Humanistic, Person-centred therapy - a non-authoritative approach that allows you, my client, to take more of a lead in our sessions.
Help to Find the ‘Key to You’
I have particular interest and experience in helping clients who are struggling with a sense of what I call ‘stuckness’, in their life.
Are you in a relationship, but have a niggling feeling that something doesn’t quite click, but you’re not sure what?
Are you feeling trapped in a job that doesn’t inspire you to get up every morning, but you can’t put your finger on what career would fulfil you?
Are you feeling imprisoned in life’s routine and experiencing a sense of emptiness, but are unsure of how to fill that void?
……. Are you quietly asking yourself ‘Who am I?’
You are not alone. I have worked with many individuals with troubles such as these. In a world that seems to be telling us how to look, how to act and even how to feel, it’s no wonder we can find ourselves feeling lost and confused. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and caring environment in which I support clients in exploring themselves.
The counselling space is like no other; I accept you fully and I have no wants or expectations of you - my goal is to help you to discover what is best for YOU. In coming closer to understanding who you are, we can talk about what you want in life and then I will support andempower you toward realising your potential.
If you are feeling stuck and need to find clarity and confidence in making changes, I can help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a warm, friendly and down to earth person. I am empathetic and always try my best to see and feel things the way you do.
Before my counselling degree and training, I worked in retail and Health and Social Care sectors. During and after my counselling training I volunteered with a self-injury support line, supporting people anonymously by text and email and worked within school nursing team. Currently as well as being self-employed counsellor, I work within a therapies team supporting older clients using CBT techniques, to help overcome loneliness and isolation.
