Katherine Watt, Reg MBACP Counsellor
How I work
I’m a perceptive, warm and understanding therapist, trained in the person-centred approach. My way of working is to help you explore your feelings and experiences at your own pace, in a respectful and non-judgemental environment. I'm committed to providing a safe and trusting counselling relationship that enables you to find your own way to move forward. My aim is that throughout our time together, you'll feel supported, heard and understood.
Who I work with
I work with people from a diverse range of backgrounds, with a variety of difficulties, including anxiety and depression, relationship issues, workplace stress, loneliness, separation and divorce, and bereavement. A broader list of the things I can help with, is here.
I have extensive experience of counselling women as they prepare for and adjust to motherhood, and I've co-facilitated a support group for new mums.
Much of my current counselling work is with teachers and other school-based professionals.
