Kate is a recently qualified counselling psychologist (graduating November 2017) and has been practising psychotherapy for over 10 years, based in Cheltenham and Worcester. She also works for a leading childhood bereavement charity, which provides support to children and their families. Kate has also worked in NHS clinical settings, providing cognitive behavioural therapy and psychotherapy for individuals as well as psycho-educational group training.
Kate takes an integrative and relational approach to her work, and draws upon a range of therapeutic models including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and person-centred therapy. Therapy gives you the opportunity to talk in depth about difficulties and emotions you may be experiencing. Talking to friends and family is not always easy and often we are left feeling alone and stuck. Psychological issues and difficult events and circumstances can impact all of us at various times in our lives, and Kate is experienced in helping individuals gain a greater insight into their problems and developing new ways in overcoming difficulties. She provides the space and skills to explore and develop positive changes in your life.
Kate is experienced in working with individuals on a variety of issues and concerns including depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and worry, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety, phobias, relationship problems, trauma, loss and bereavement, family issues, estrangement, and other related concerns.
Kate is a member of The British Psychological Society.
