Sometimes we just need to share our painful stories with an empathic, non-judgemental, active listener. It is vital in any therapeutic relationship, that the therapist conveys the qualities of Unconditional Positive Regard and Congruence (being real and authentic) These are the Core Conditions of Carl Roger’s Person-Centred Counselling and Kate’s starting point in creating an attuned, empathic relationship with her client.
You may be suffering from anxiety, low mood or depression. You may be needing to vent your feelings, explore your frustrations after a loss of relationship or gain self-awareness. Following an Initial Consultation, a mutual assessment if you like, to see if we might be suited to working together therapeutically – clients can contract to either 6, 8 or 12 weeks of Counselling with Kate.
Often an initial focus of the work or presenting issue may change direction during the counselling process, which is normal. You would then have the option to extend the counselling sessions or be in an open-ended contract with 4 weekly reviews to see where you are in the process and to reflect on our work.
If you feel this is something which could help you – Kate welcomes your questions. You can call her on 07725 109961 or fill in our online request form to set up a confidential Initial Consultation in order to assess your needs. We look forward to connecting with you.
‘Thank you so much for all your help and guidance last year. I have gained so much and feel stronger within myself to deal with everything sent my way!’

‘…I finally feel that I can go through this, whereas before , I couldn’t just imagine, I thought this was the end for everything. When I come to you, no matter what I’m going through or how bad it is, I just feel safe and feel understood…It gives me some calm state of mind..that sense of safeness and understanding I just feel so good…You have accepted me for who I am, I can’t thank you enough! How you put up with me; last week that, this week this – and always you are here for me. Like family. You are so positive and always not judging’
