About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome... My name’s Kate (she/her), an integrative, inclusive counsellor based in East Devon.

Whatever brings you to seek support will be unique to you. Perhaps you have a sense that life just isn't as you would like it to be, and want to make changes? Maybe you are unsure of what, or how, exactly, you are feeling at the moment? Do you have feelings of anxiety , or are you stuck in unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving? Perhaps you are struggling within your relationships at home, at work, or socially? It may be that you are living with loss/bereavement, or supporting a loved one with their own mental/physical health? Or would you like help navigating the challenges that everyday life is bringing?

My best hopes are for you to feel safe and comfortable in the accepting and confidential space I can hold for you. I have knowledge and understanding to bring to our work, and, as I work alongside you, my main role is to listen closely and be curious about whatever you are bringing to sessions. I strongly believe that you are the expert in you.

Practice description

As an integrative therapist, I consider and use different psychological approaches to tailor the work we might do together. I carefully bring the theory and techniques from these different models as one philosophy, and I endeavour to 'meet' you wherever you are in the here and now. We are all unique and, I think, all deserve therapy which reflects that.

Neurodivergence, social anxiety, low self-esteem and relationship challenges are a professional and personal interest of mine. I have extensive experience supporting families with SEND and EHCPs.

My first session

It is so important to find the 'right fit' therapist for you. I offer a free, no obligation, 20 minute telephone call, or in-person meeting, so that we can explore whether I am the right person for you. 

After taking some time to consider if you would  like to make an initial assessment session, you can then get back in touch to arrange an appointment to begin our work together.
