Natasha Klimt: Counsellor/ Psychotherapist
I understand that particularly with the world's current affairs, there is a lot of understandable anxiety circulating. Now- more than ever, it may be difficult to feel safe, secure and peaceful within yourself and the world. I create a space that helps you to process what you feel and will also help to contain any feelings you may be experiencing as overwhelming. Due to the coronavirus, I am simply modifying the way I offer sessions so that I can be flexible in how I support my clients. This means I offer sessions via Skype, Zoom or telephone. This is only temporary, until our situation is fully under control, at which point I will very much look forward to seeing all my clients again in person.
Anxiety, depression, relationship issues-- including family & communication issues.
How I work
I help you to work through your experiences and emotions in a safe and non-judgemental environment. It's important for me to understand you as an individual and explore whatever feels important to you.
As well as seeing clients from my private practice, I work with the charity Grief Encounter to offer support to those who have been bereaved, as well as in a school where I work with young adults in this setting.
I understand that coming to counselling can be very hard-- especially if it is an entirely new experience, and this is why I am extremely sensitive to your needs, regardless of what these may be. No problem is too small or too big. I offer initial sessions first so that you can see whether you would like to work with me. I work at your pace and respect any information you choose to bring to the session.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I am trained as an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor, a combined approach, which means I pool different theories and techniques together, in order to better understand and respond to each client and their individual needs.
I hold a BSc Honours Degree in Counselling, a Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling, a Diploma, and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling.
I have received additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Time-Limited Counselling, Psychiatry, Psychopathology, Psychodynamics and Gestalt Therapy.
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.
