I am however, hoping to expand my private practice so will have more availability than Wednesdays and Saturday mornings which I am currently able to offer.
About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Katrina Meulemans, and I am a fully qualified, BACP registered therapist in Ashford, Kent, and online.
I understand that sometimes the stresses of life become too much, and at times like these you need a space to be listened to. My private home studio is a confidential, welcoming place where you can talk freely about the issues that are weighing you down. My specialist experience also includes working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, burnout. bereavement, and addictions.
You might be nervous coming to therapy for the first time, but I am a friendly, empathetic therapist who works with you in a down-to-earth way and always maintains a sense of humour, making sure you feel comfortable and heard at all times.
If you are looking for a therapist in Ashford, Kent, or online, feel free to get in touch and ask any questions you may have.
How I Can Help You
As an integrative therapist, I draw on multiple therapeutic approaches to offer a bespoke intervention that is right for you in particular. Every individual is unique, so each problem requires its own specific person-centered solution. I will work closely with you to identify the positive influences in your life – what makes you tick – and develop a personalised treatment plan from there, always taking care to readjust our plan in accordance with your changing needs over time.

Our first session is a 60-minute assessment, during which you will have the chance to walk me through the issues
My first session
