'If we hope to go anywhere or develop ourselves in any way, we can only step from where we are standing. If we don't really know where we are standing... we may only go in circles'
- Jon Kabat-Zinn
My name is Catherine and I offer you a warm welcome to my website
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering a counselling service in North Devon. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere strictly to its ethical framework. I am a trained integrative counsellor which means that I have the flexibility to adapt my counselling skills according to my clients' specific individual needs. I am deeply committed to my own regular professional development and clinical supervision to further enhance my practice.
I will work with you in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can explore difficult feelings, such as those associated with anxiety, depression, trauma and loss. When you feel lost, alone or unheard, I will be there to listen and support your exploration of challenging events in your life or painful thoughts about yourself or others. In this way, I will help you identify what has bought you to counselling and encourage you in developing greater emotional resilience, purposefulness and the skills to make better choices for lasting change.
I have experience in dealing with a wide range of issues including:
* Anxiety and depression
* Relationship issues
* Low self esteem
* Panic disorder
* Work related issues
* Anger management
