Katy Berwick MBACP (Accred.)
I work in an integrative way; this means that I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to suit you as a unique individual. Since 2012, I have experience of counselling people with a variety of mental health issues; such as addiction, trauma, relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety and bereavement.
From 2012 – 2019, I specialised in supporting people with any form of eating disorder through the Bath-based charity Focus Counselling.
Since 2010, I have worked with people with dementia and their carers in a health and social care setting. I have undertaken a wide range of training in this area, providing me with a strong understanding of how dementia and the role of caring can impact on a person’s life. Combined together my experience has led me to work for the counselling service for Alzheimer’s Support in East and West Wiltshire.
From my experience in working with people facing a life-changing diagnosis, I also provide counselling for a local charity called We Hear You; helping people with cancer and other terminal illness and their families.
I offer creativity and artistic expression in counselling sessions as a means of self-exploration and reaching new understanding; as words can often limit our ability to express our feelings.
I am a “Dissociative-Friendly” therapist and can be found on the PODS (Positive Outcomes for Dissociative Survivors) register. This means that I am happy to work with people who experience dissociative symptoms from past traumas. More information about dissociative identity disorder and the register can be be found here – http://www.pods-online.org.uk/
Since 2012, I have been facilitating support groups for different client groups including, people with dementia, carers, people with eating disorders and young people with anxiety.
I have developed and delivered educational workshops for professionals working with people with dementia and people with eating disorders.
I am a Registered and Accredited Member of BACP (MBACP Accred.) and adhere to their Ethical Principles and Code of Practice.
BACP accreditation formally recognises the attainment of high standards of knowledge, experience and development in counselling practice. Current and prospective clients can therefore have even greater confidence when seeking therapy through my services.
Please note that on the BACP register I am listed with my full name – Katharine Berwick.
If you are interested in seeking counselling with me, please contact me via email or my mobile so we can begin to discuss what you are looking to get out of counselling. I offer a free 30 minute consultation with you at my practice, where you can find out more about me and how I work and it gives you the opportunity to explain how you would like to use the sessions. If you decide you would like to work with me, we will arrange weekly (sometimes fortnightly) sessions in a short or long term arrangement.
