About me and my therapy practice
Hi and welcome! As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I draw from theories from multiple fields and modalities of psychotherapy, in a cohesive and assimilative approach which allows me to work reflexively and creatively to meet your needs.
I offer clients in the Leicestershire and Rutland area care and support with a wide range of psychological issues. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to support you through any obstacles that you may face. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply, to work through any presenting issues and better cope with change.
Current qualifications include:
• Level 2 Award in Counselling Concepts
• BSc (hons) in Humanistic & Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
And I am passionate about staying up to date with current practices and so I attend regular additional training courses for my continued professional development. Some recent ones include: working with suicide, dreams, safe guarding and gestalt.
As well as practicing psychotherapy I am also working on articles and a book for publication. My specialist areas are in working with neurodivergence and trauma.
I am a very open, genuine and down to earth person, with a passion for supporting people to achieve a more fulfilled and honest life.
If you’d like to learn more about me and the way I work, please visit my website: www.Katewalkerpsychotherapy.co.uk or find me on social media -
All face to face appointments are held at The Rutland Therapy Centre and I also work online.
The therapy centre that I work from is on the top floor, and unfortunately there is no lift so I am not currently able to offer face to face appointments to clients who are unable to use stairs.
There is ample parking found in the pay and display carpark at the rear of the building.
My first session
It’s extremely common to have feelings of anxiety and apprehension about your first session of therapy. I really encourage you to let me know how you’re feeling and I will do everything I can to reassure you.
I know how confusing it can feel and the fear of the unknown often feels overwhelming, so I will do my best to demystify the process of therapy for you. I will describe the process in as much detail as you need and I always say there’s no such thing as a silly question and it’s really important to me for you to feel armed with all the information that you need to feel comfortable.
Your first session with me will last 50minutes and it will be primarily a pre therapy assessment. I will ask you about what brings you to therapy, if you have any history of mental health and whether you have been in therapy before. I will take a detailed history including any information that you feel will be relevant. The more information you can give me during this session, the better the outcome will be in therapy, however, I do also understand how difficult it can be to talk about some hurtful or triggering content and I respect any boundaries that you put in place in terms of what you are willing to share right away. I understand that sometimes it can take some time to build a trusting relationship in which you feel comfortable to confide some things to me.
During this session we can decide together whether we are a good fit for one another, and what the best course of therapy is for you.
