About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Katie, an experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor with extensive experience of working with Young People and Adults. I've worked with the YMCA for many years and through them CAMHS and for the past two years I've worked as a School Counsellor in a large secondary School combining this with my private practice
Life can be difficult, confusing, painful and empty leaving us feeling in a destructive loop that has no end and no known beginning. This can create a negative internal voice or physical symptoms like panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia or depression, as our bodies try really hard to let us know that something has gone wrong and needs our immediate attention.
So why would counselling help?
Sometimes it's hard to find the right person to share with this doesn't mean that friends and family wouldn't help but fear of being judged, causing pain, or stress can create barriers to connection. It's also impossible to talk about something if we don't fully understand the problem ourselves, words aren't always there for us when we really need them.
Counselling offers the potential for a supportive, confidential, non-judgemental relationship which offers the freedom to explore your world. Together we will make new discoveries and form a new understanding of your world so that you can move forwards confidently with your life, and when this happens our work together will finish.
It's the things that we don't do in our lives that we regret not the things we do
My aim is to make sure that our work together will carefully match your changing needs and provides you with an opportunity to express yourself fully. I can offer different methods of working together which I find particularly useful for Young People and we can discuss what would work for you. Deciding to take time to re evaluate your world is a brave step and with so many of counsellors out there it's a hard choice to make, I know as I have been there too, but just by considering it you have taken the first step, so just take one more,
