About me and my therapy practice

I'm Catherine, a passionate therapist dedicated to helping people of all ages, from children and youths through to adults, navigate the challenges of life. I'm a relaxed, positive, and fun-loving individual who values the power of listening and fostering relationships. My mission as a therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where every individual's voice can be heard.

Practice description

I hold a foundation Degree in person-centred counselling and a Diploma in Child Psychology, which equips me with the knowledge and skills needed to connect with and support young and mature minds. During my academic journey, I had the privilege of completing my placement with Manchester Minds, where I had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of children and young adults, both with and without additional needs, as well as working with adults within Manchester college.

In my role at Manchester Minds and Manchester college, I gained valuable experience working with individuals facing various emotional challenges. I supported people coping with anxiety and depression, helped them navigate the complex emotions associated with grief and loss, and provided guidance to those dealing with abuse, including self-harm. This experience has reinforced my commitment to helping individuals overcome their struggles and find happiness within themselves.

Beyond my formal training, I bring over 20 years of experience working with children and young people in educational settings. This includes working with children as young as 2 years old, both in mainstream and specialised educational environments, working closely with young people living with autism. This background has provided me with a deep understanding of the unique needs and challenges that children and young adults face as they grow and develop. I am currently working on my professional development around child’s play therapy. 

My first session

My therapeutic approach is rooted in the belief that every individual deserves to have their voice heard. I am committed to creating a safe and empathetic environment enabling individuals to open up, share their stories, and explore their emotions without fear of judgement. I take a person-centred approach, allowing the individual to guide the therapeutic process, whether through conversation, creative expression, or and even meditation.

I am able to draw upon my own personal experiences in order to relate to the people i work with, and i have a passion for helping people find their own happiness and confidence. My own journey led me to pursue a career in counselling, and my own self reflection gave me the desire to offer support and guidance to those in need of inspiration

Despite living with dyslexia, which has presented me with its own challenges, i have developed a unique approach to my role and have a skillset that allows me to identify the needs of my clients. This allows me to support them more effectively and gives me a more empathetic and understanding view of the challenges an individual may face.

In summary, my therapy services are grounded in empathy, compassion, and a deep commitment to helping individuals thrive. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you or your child and to be a supportive presence on the journey toward emotional well-being and personal growth. Please feel free to reach out, and together, we can embark on this transformative journey.

About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Catherine Keeler, a passionate child therapist dedicated to helping children and young adults up to the age of 25 navigate the challenges of life. I'm a relaxed, positive, and fun-loving individual who values the power of listening and fostering relationships. My mission as a child therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where every individual's voice can be heard

I am committed to creating a safe and empathetic environment where young minds can open up, share their stories, and explore their emotions without fear of judgment. I take a person-centered approach, allowing the individual to guide the therapeutic process, whether through conversation, creative expression, or even sign language (though I'm at a level one proficiency, approximately 50% fluent).

My passion for helping young people find happiness and confidence stems from personal experiences. Witnessing my parents become foster parents and seeing the positive impact they had on young lives ignited my interest in child psychology. Additionally, my own journey through an abusive relationship and subsequent counseling inspired me to pursue a career as a child therapist. I am driven by the desire to provide the support and guidance that I wish I had received during challenging times.

One thing you may notice is that I am dyslexic. However, I want to emphasize that this does not hinder my ability to provide effective therapy or support to my clients. In fact, my own experiences with dyslexia have made me even more empathetic and understanding of the unique challenges individuals may face.

In summary, my child therapy services are grounded in empathy, compassion, and a deep commitment to helping young individuals thrive. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you or your child and to be a supportive presence on the journey toward emotional well-being and personal growth. Please feel free to reach out, and together, we can embark on this transformative journey.
