ABOUT ME & MY APPROACH
Hi, I'm Catherine, I'm a fully qualified and accredited counsellor, and I help people overcome anxiety, stress and emotional pain and find calm again.
I chose to do this work because it is deeply fulfilling to see each person that I work with heal and grow into the person they are meant to be.
Do you ever have anxious thoughts, or the desire to feel more confident or to improve your self esteem? Are you feeling stressed out, overwhelmed or lost in life? If you are looking for a life without constant anxiety - I can help you.
By helping you examine the problematic thoughts behind your anxious feelings, I can help you to identify blocks which may be holding you back, and how to move beyond them. I will also suggest ways of coping with the challenges of life nowadays, perhaps involving behaviour and lifestyle changes, and ultimately calming your anxious feelings.
My priority is to create a warm, empathetic, non-judgmental space for each client to be able to explore their own world. I integrate elements of different approaches according to each client’s unique needs, while based upon the cornerstone of person – centred therapy. In the end, the power of the therapeutic relationship is a very important component in growth and healing.
After attending your therapy sessions with me, you should find yourself without the negative beliefs you had previously, and you'll be feeling confident and calm again. You deserve to live free from pain and worry, so please do get in touch to arrange your first session.
I would love to help you find your full potential.
Some more information about me: As a former theatre practitioner, I'm passionate about the therapeutic potential of theatre and all of the arts, and this forms part of my integrative approach.
I am open to exploring a spiritual perspective on life, as this is something I'm passionate about. It would obviously be according to the needs and wishes of my clients. Please call or email me if this is something you would like to discuss.
I attend regular supervision as part of my professional work and adhere to the code of ethics of the IACP. I've also done training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy and ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills).
Having lived five years in South America, I can provide therapy in both English and Spanish.
