About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Catherine Sweet and I am a fully qualified and registered Integrative counsellor offering individual therapy and Supervision in Totnes and online.

I believe that coming to see a counsellor is about making some time and space in your life to explore things which you are finding challenging.

As a counsellor I will encourage you to talk and express in confidence the unique person you are. I will endeavour to offer you a genuine, reflective and non-judgemental relationship to explore your difficulties.

Sometimes we can become stuck in patterns of thinking and behaving which we feel like we have no control over. You may find it difficult relating to others and/or struggle to feel understood.

This is a place for you to become the expert of you, to look at who you are and the person you would like to become.

Working collaboratively, my hope is that I can encourage you to be more self-directive, more self-confident and expressive. More able to cope with the problems of living and gain more understanding of aspects of yourself and others.

Please see my website for more details about my approach and FAQ. Do get in touch with any questions.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer Clinical Supervision for counsellors in Totnes and online. My counselling training was in Integrative practice and therefore I bring this theoretical perspective to my work as a Supervisor. Throughout my career so far my experience has been varied as a practitioner . I have worked and volunteered in higher education colleges , schools and specialist youth agencies and helplines. I worked with young people at Off the Record (Bristol) , The Isle of Wight Youth Trust and I was a counselling coordinator for Young Devon in Plymouth. Before my formal training I volunteered as a telephone counsellor at Bristol Crisis service for women (now Self Injury Support ). I now work solely in Private practice seeing both young people and adults. I have experience of designing and delivering workshops to both young people , veterinary professionals and counsellors. I am passionate about counselling being a very human experience and resilience in mental health being taught to both young people and adults. I believe I bring these elements to my Supervision practice too. I have special interests in working creatively in Practice, neuroscience and working with young people. I have experience of setting up, moving and maintaining a private practice and have interest and experience of marketing and promoting counselling which I always love to encourage other practitioners to do. I am experienced in supervising both groups and individuals, qualified and student counsellors.

My hope would be that as a supervisor I can facilitate a space for you to feel supported , to develop as a therapist and to explore the processes and dynamics that you are experiencing. I integrate the models and functions of Supervision explored by Hawkins and Shohet as well as newer models of practice such as the work of Els Van Ooijen. 

My sessions are £45 for an hours session or £65 for 1.5hrs.
