Welcome to my profile.

My name is Kathryn and I currently work with adults over the age of 18 years and I provide both short-term solution based therapy, as well as longer term therapy to help people reach their personal potential. I am trained, qualified and experienced in helping clients with varied and multiple issues

Working in an integrated way enables me to use a variety of counselling techniques, and to personalise therapy sessions to provide the best therapy for you.

My counselling practice is adapted to you as my client and your presenting issues. I may use Person Centered, CBT, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and other approaches to counselling within our sessions.

I work towards empowering you as my client to find the best solutions to help with your presenting issues; equipping you with coping strategies that can be used easily and long-term; leading to the ability to live your best life - whilst providing a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Counselling sessions are normally held on Zoom but can be facilitated via other online platforms or via telephone.

People are my passion and I have over 23 years experience of working with people as a Head of Human Resources, both in the UK and abroad.
I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist, Coach, Mediator and Mental Health First Aid Instructor.
