It is not unusual to experience challenging times, no matter how grounded we feel. Sometimes we may feel stuck, conflicted or concerned.
Psychotherapy can help as a way of exploring the self. Psychotherapy will not provide you with solutions by telling you what to do but will allow you the space and freedom to explore thoughts, feelings, behaviours and options with a view to making change.
I offer weekly therapy sessions on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time to those experiencing difficult and emotive times or those wishing to make positive changes in their lives. Below are some of the reasons people enter into psychotherapy or counselling but it is by no means an exhaustive list.
There are many reasons why people enter into psychotherapy.
Anxiety / worry / stress
Low self esteem & confidence
Unresolved historical issues
Relationship concerns (partner, children, friendships)
Bereavement, loss, separation
Training, qualifications & experience
My name is Katy Lee and I offer a Counselling and Psychotherapy service in Bushey and Watford, Hertfordshire. At the heart of my practice is the fundamental belief that we are all OK, no matter what our circumstances or presenting issues. I work in a Relational and Integrative way, meaning that I place paramount importance on the relationship established between client and therapist and am fully committed to being a part of an individuals journey, from start to finish, while offering a supportive and safe space for exploration and change.
I have completed four years advanced training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy (MIP) a course which is recognised by The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Accordingly I possess a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. Since completing my diploma and having been endorsed (assessed by a UKCP registered trainer to work with the public) I have worked for the past year at a refuge and rehabilitation facility as one of their in house Psychotherapists and Counsellors, working primarily with substance misuse and other addictions but also dealing with a wider range of problems and underlying issues as presented by the client.
For the benefit of both my clients and myself as a Therapist I have regular Supervision with a UKCP registered Supervisor. This time allows me to offer the most effective, well rounded service possible to anyone who enters into a Psychotherapeutic relationship with me. I am also fully insured by The Psychologists Protection Society.
Psychotherapy is a confidential service and every client is treated with respect and integrity at all times. In addition to that you can also be assured of an open and honest approach to the therapy and the provision of a safe space in which we can work together, looking at both presenting issues and underlying problems with the goal of bringing about positive change. If you wish to contact me to discuss any questions you may have or to make an appointment please do so on 07950 345363 I will be more than happy to talk with you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
