About me and my therapy practice
Hi! I'm Cat, a dedicated Therapeutic Counsellor committed to fostering healing through a person-centred approach. My practice is anchored in creating a safe and empathetic space for individuals on their journey towards mental well-being.
Overview of My Approach:
1. Person-Centred Foundation:
At the heart of my practice is the person-centred approach, founded on the belief that every individual has the innate capacity for growth and self-discovery. I strive to create a non-judgmental environment where clients feel empowered to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences at their own pace.
2. Tailored and Collaborative:
Recognising the uniqueness of each client, I tailor therapeutic interventions to suit their specific needs. Collaboration is key; together, we embark on a journey of self-exploration, working towards a deeper understanding of personal challenges and discovering sustainable solutions.
3. Empathetic Listening:
Listening is a cornerstone of my counselling style. By actively engaging in empathetic listening, I aim to understand your narrative, creating a sense of validation and understanding. This creates a foundation for trust and openness, essential elements for therapeutic growth.
Our sessions are purposeful and goal-oriented. Through a collaborative dialogue, we identify clear objectives, whether it be overcoming obstacles, managing stress, enhancing self-esteem, or navigating life transitions. We work together to promote lasting positive change.
5. Cultivating Self-Awareness:
Central to my practice is the cultivation of self-awareness. I guide clients in gaining insights into their emotions, behaviours, and patterns, empowering them to make informed choices and embrace personal growth.
I'm passionate about empowering individuals to embark on a transformative journey towards self-discovery, resilience, and lasting well-being. Together, we navigate challenges, celebrate victories, and pave the way for a more fulfilling and authentic life.
Whether you're new to counselling or returning after a hiatus, let me offer insights into my practice. As a person-centred counsellor, our journey will align with your unique needs. I utilise a diverse array of therapeutic techniques and evidence-based modalities to address your emotional, cognitive, and behavioural requirements, ensuring a thorough exploration of your well-being.
Establishing a robust therapeutic alliance is crucial to our work together. I am wholeheartedly committed to providing steadfast support, encouragement, and guidance throughout our counselling journey. This commitment is geared towards fostering resilience and equipping you with tools for sustained well-being.
I provide in-person counselling as well as sessions via video and telephone. We can use a blend of all three if that is what suits you best.
My first session
When you first reach out we will arrange a consultation session where we can meet each other and explore whether we are a good fit to work together. There's no commitment and no need to go any further than this first chat if you decide things aren't right for you.
