About Kathryn

I had an award winning career spanning over twenty years working in the logistics industry being recognised by the industry in the top 100 list several times and having the honour of winning leader of the year award in recognition of the work I did supporting, mentoring, coaching and developing individuals within the organisations I worked for. 
 
I help all my clients achieve sustainable and lasting results and my background as a senior executive at director level enables me to understand the motivations and challenges of working in large organisations, leading teams of people and delivering targets, dealing with conflicts and achieving work life balance.
 
I have been qualified as a coach since 2011 and a behavioural analyst in 2013 due to more and more employees presenting with personal/mental health issues I decided to learn more and became a qualified counsellor in 2013.
 
In 2017 I decided I wanted to focus more on the areas of my career I found most fulfilling so set up my own business as a Counsellor and Coach supporting individuals and businesses.
 
On the coaching side I work with businesses and their employee’s at all levels from first line managers right up to executives, enabling them to become confident individuals who are able to manage and drive change programmes, improve/develop their management and leadership, influencing and engagement skills. I help them secure stakeholder support and build teams that deliver, gaining clarity on goals and setting strategic plans for the future.
 
I work with individuals on a variety of topics, including career advice, building better relationships, motivation, goal setting, health and fitness , spirituality to name a few. I help clients achieve success.
 
 On the counselling side I work as an integrative counsellor, which means I flex my style to suit different individuals. I work with many individuals and businesses dealing with issues ranging from, dealing with general stresses of life, work, relationships issues and breakdowns, bereavement, abuse, depression, anxiety etc.

Get to Know Kathryn

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

During my career in logistics I had multiple individuals in my team who over the years presented with mental health issues. One who was talking about suicide, I sought advice from the HR team and didn't agree with their suggestion. I felt I would push the individual over the edge. I too a different approach that helped them. That night I saw an advert for a 10 week introduction to counselling course and signed up. I learnt a lot but also learnt that there was so much more to know and I needed to understand more. I then signed up to do a counselling skills certificate course which then led on to me completing my diploma and becoming a qualified counsellor.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

Everybody is different and I don' t believe one size fits all different individuals need different things at different points in their therapy. That's why I flex between styles in my sessions working in a way that suits my client best at the time.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

My therapy sessions are a calm safe place for you to explore your feelings and emotions, I flex my style to adjust to the individual in front of me and their needs and provide the support they need to overcome, resolve, manage or accept the situation enabling them to move forward.
