Service and Fees
Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy
You may have an ongoing issue stemming from something that happened to you recently, something in your past or just something you are coming to terms with; or you may be in particular circumstances such as work related stress, relationship issues, family issues or bullying where you feel you need some support and therapeutic input. This is something that can be discussed with Kathy in the first session when you talk to her about what is going on for you.
Counselling for Children and Young People
Children and Young People go through many feelings and emotions about different things that they experience in their lives whether it is bereavement, sibling rivalry, bullying, self-harm, low self-esteem, friendships, confidence, school or exam stress and family issues to name a few. They have different ways of expressing themselves and communicating and this is not always through talking. Kathy works with children and young people through talking therapy, metaphor and play where they will have the opportunity to process their feelings without the pressure of having to talk if they do not wish to. An initial phone consultation would be held with the parent of the child or young person, to get an understanding of what's going on for them.
A 50 minute counselling session is generally conducted on a weekly basis from Kathy's private practice in Twickenham TW2, South West London. The first session is called the assessment session where Kathy will gain a better understanding of what has brought you to counselling where you will have an opportunity to ask any questions and discuss how Kathy works and how you will work together.
Kathy offers group Supervision and one to one Supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists from trainee level through to qualified Counsellors. Kathy works integratively where she primarily builds a relationship of trust that allows her to work with unconscious processes at the therapists level of development and experience.
