About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Kate.  I appreciate that we are all living in challenging times right now, the impact of which will be affecting us in a variety of ways. I believe it is important that support remains available and am therefore providing online and telephone counselling.  This is underpinned by relevant training to ensure online provision is delivered competently and ethically.

You may be feeling anxious, distressed, fearful of what is happening. You may be angry or feeling a sense of loss. Whatever is going on for you, online counselling is an option for you to safely explore this. It can provide a connection in times when you may be feeling cut off from people. You may be experiencing more longstanding difficulties and online counselling is a space for these too. 

No matter the medium, counselling is a partnership where we will work together to develop your understanding and self-awareness; to ultimately help you live a more fulfilled and peaceful life.  I will not judge or tell you what to do.  Instead, I will be there to support you in your exploration of what you bring.  

My approach to counselling is about you and what you need. I work in an integrative way meaning my skills and experience can be used to meet your needs while you remain central to the counselling process. I will listen to your story and draw upon relevant counselling ideas to support your exploration.  I offer both long and short term counselling and also have particular experience of working with complex trauma and abuse.  Please take a look at my website to learn more about me.

If you think I can help then please get in touch.

My first session

I use a secure and encrypted video conferencing platform for online counselling and should you choose to make contact, I will provide more information and guidance about how it works. 

The first meeting may feel like a daunting prospect and you may feel uncertain about working online so, to begin with, I offer a free 30 minute consultation for you to see how it feels.  This will also     give an opportunity to ask any questions.  

I will give you more of any idea about my approach as well as talking through the counselling process and what's involved.  I hope to make this feel relaxed and informative.  Should you then decide to proceed we will arrange our first session.
