Here’s a bit about me….
Life has presented me with challenges. Moving abroad to Switzerland at aged ten, life changed dramatically and I experienced bullying at school. Later, as a teen, I became disaffected and failed exams! Academic achievement felt akin to being loved, so this was a hard lesson! (pun intended.)
The Open University
Whilst going through a difficult marriage, I began an OU degree in psychology and diplomas in therapy because I wanted to help others who were experiencing relationship difficulties and stresses and who wanted to make sense of their lives.
Highly Sensitive Person
Being a “highly sensitive” person I avoid crowds and seek solace in dog walks surrounded by countryside. I am drawn to understanding why people do what they do and driven to contribution in terms of making our world a happier one.
Work with Me
Working with me is ‘holistic’ yet focused to help you live a happier life. My aim is for you to leave our sessions feeling lighter and calmer with a greater degree of clarity.
What I appreciated most about the counselling [with Kate] was a time for reflection and ability to talk freely.
My experience spans nearly eleven years within the talking therapies world.
People gain positive changes working with me and sessions will help you gain effective results in many areas where you might be currently struggling which include stress removal, relationship support and finding calm in your life.
I believe we instinctively hold the potential inside ourselves to transform, even if at the moment you don’t feel at all like that. Perhaps you just want to be heard by someone impartial to process your feelings, or you have a life-changing decision to make and you need a safe processing space.
I belong to professional organisations and adhere to the NCS and BPS code of ethics and am fully committed to regular ongoing continuing professional development, with full Professional Indemnity Insurance.
My work is integrative which means I draw upon my experience and training to support you fully. It can be rapid, effective and permanent, yet always collaborative. Contact me today!
My practice is situated near the river in Malmesbury, a beautiful outlook onto fields.
When I am not working as a therapist, I run, enjoy walks with my significant other and my dog, spending time with my daughters, singing in a choir, listening to music and watching films.
