About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Kate and I'm a Humanistic Counsellor, grounded in Person Centred Counselling based in East Yorkshire.
My personal philosophy is that I believe that everyone carries a puzzle within them and they also hold the answers to the puzzle.
Think of it looking like a Rubik's cube. Sometimes it can get a little jumbled through life events like relationship breakdown, stress and loss.
Sometimes the squares could be confusion or something hidden, it’s my job as the counsellor to help the client make sense of that square and what it means to them.
Through the work of therapy, the client makes small changes and the pieces move and fall into place.
It is not about completing the whole puzzle - putting in some of the pieces could be enough for the client to feel positive change.
I work in a relational way, I'm not scared to use analogies or use pop culture to enhance the therapeutic relationship. I'm a firm believer that 'all of life's riddles are answered in the movies'.
My practice is based entirely online, via Zoom/Teams/Skype which allows me the flexibility to offer sessions outside the 9 to 5.
This also allows me to have clients from outside East Yorkshire.
I aim to answer all enquires within 48 hours. If contact is made over a weekend, I'll be in touch on the next business day,
My first session
First sessions can feel overwhelming so I try to keep them as simple as possible.
I'll ask brief assessment questions around presenting issues, previous experience of therapy etc. We will also touch upon the therapy contract which will guide our journey.
If you want to go ahead with sessions, then a signed contract needs to be sent back before sessions start.
