Hi, I'm Katie. I'm a Person-centred and pluralistic therapist. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (MNCPS Accred)

I work with adults who are experiencing difficulties in all areas of their lives. I combine lots of different therapeutic approaches to find what works best for you.

 

I will provide a warm, welcoming, non-judgemental, safe and confidential space for you to explore all parts of yourself safely and at a pace that's right for you. Working together, you will experience a compassionate space to allow you to explore different elements of yourself and your concerns.

I work with each client individually, to help you to find the best way for you, personally. I have experience around counselling for depression and anxiety, bereavement, relationships and self-confidence and extended training and experience around parenting, drugs, alcohol and cross-cultural issues.

Is counselling for you?

Are you experiencing a low mood, depression, panic or anxiety? Do you feel lost, with no one to talk to, no one who seems to understand? Maybe you feel a sense of shame or guilt, or low self esteem? Are you struggling with your confidence, friendships or relationships? ​If you are feeling scared, confused or alone, if you're struggling to keep a sense of normality or having difficulty managing your emotions, talking to someone might help.

I believe that individuals have the capacity to create amazing, inspiring changes in their lives, and I take a collaborative approach, working with you as an individual, to ensure the best possible outcome. I will do my best to listen to your thoughts and feelings, in order to understand the full story before exploring patterns and examining the issues at hand together.

Counselling will give you the space to examine your thoughts and work out what's best for you. 

I can help with a wide range of issues, including anxiety and depression, work related stress, parenting-related issues - particularly managing difficult teenagers - as well as bereavement, menopause, trauma, cultural issues and much more. 

I believe that people are capable of awe-inspiring changes and it's a privilege to work alongside clients and see them change, grow and develop in so many ways. My core training is person-centred, but I've done lots of additional training around working with families, grief, trauma, attachment and parenting. I also work with employee assistance programmes around work-related stress, offering solution-focused brief therapy.
