About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Kate, thank you for taking the time to read my counselling profile. Choosing a counsellor is a difficult decision so I hope that this information will help you.
I am based in York and work online or rent a room locally in Acomb. The room has good parking and is well serviced by the number 1 and 5 bus routes.
I am a person-centred trained therapist and use an integrative approach which means that I tailor my approach to you depending on your needs as an individual.
I have a first-class BSc (Hons) in Therapeutic Counselling from Leeds Beckett University and a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma Therapeutic Counselling from York Learning.
I have been practicing as a counsellor for 4 years.
I take part in lots of CPD in areas that interest me such as trauma-informed practice, mindfulness and polyvagal theory.
I am a member of the BACP and all of my work is informed by their ethical guidelines.
The most important aspect of any counselling is the relationship that you have with your therapist. You need to feel comfortable so that you can share your experiences openly and honestly.
I offer a calm and supportive space in which together we can explore what is happening for you. Over time we can unravel your thoughts and feelings; I will help you to clarify issues and develop coping strategies but most of all I will listen. I will not judge you, make assumptions or give you advice.
My first session
Starting therapy can be a daunting experience so I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation. During this time you will have the opportunity to tell me why you are seeking therapy and what it is that you hoping for, you can ask me any questions that you have and we can make sure that we feel comfortable working together.
If you decide to continue I will send you a contract to sign.
On your first session we will start to explore what is happening for you and if you want to we will establish some initial goals.
