Hello, my name is Catherine... (she/her)

I offer counselling both in person, online and on the phone. Alongside my private practice I am a Mum of two young boys, two older step sons and two cats. A number of my family members are neurodivergent (ADHD, Dyslexia, AUDHD, Autistic). I have had a life full of ups and downs and am both professionally and personally equipped to offer support and empathy to those seeking a comfortable space to come, talk, be heard and just ‘be’. Find out about my values.

As a counsellor, I feel privileged to be able to work alongside people struggling and in distress. Together we can work to find your unique way forward through whatever you bring to the counselling room. 

The foundation of the way I work is person-centred. This approach is based on a deep trust in your ability to find your own towards growth and health. Rest assured though, I won't just sit back and say 'mmh', 'aah' and make you do all the work! I'm very hands-on and you'll experience the sessions as collaborative!

My counselling approach has developed over the years, and I now offer a range of approaches which are tailored to your needs. For instance, I may bring in coherence therapy to support you in changing the roots of the patterns in your life, or I may draw on a focusing-oriented approach where it seems helpful.

Am I the right counsellor for you?

There are so many counsellors practicing in so many modalities that it's easy to become overwhelmed when trying to find the right match for you. Research consistently shows, though, that regardless of modality or technique, a good relationship between you and your therapist is crucial to a positive experience in therapy, so it's important to listen to your gut. An initial meeting will help you with that decision.
