As a psychologist, I use a combination of therapy approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) to help you overcome difficult thoughts and feelings.
I am a Clinical Psychologist who specialises in supporting individuals through difficult emotions and experiences, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. We all experience challenging periods in our lives; therapy can offer a safe space to work through these difficulties and support you to develop effective coping strategies to help you move forward. My role is to help you identify the barriers that are keeping you stuck and look at these from a different perspective to enable you to overcome them. The aim of therapy is to equip you with the the knowledge, tools and techniques so that you no longer need me!

I work using Zoom which allows you to access counselling from your own environment. This cuts out travelling time and may fit into a busy schedule. Even so, I recommend that you allow at least 15 minutes after sessions to think through what we have talked about. There is a need for you to create privacy so that we can speak freely and you are able to gain the most you can from the work we do together. Over the past seventeen years as a qualified counsellor I have helped clients with depression, addiction, codependency, anxiety, recovery from harmful relationships, bereavement and loss, trauma, family dynamics and workplace stress.

Hi, I’m Kathryn – a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. We all face times in our life when things feel less than easy. For some, a particular aspect of life may feel overwhelming. For others, their entire situation may feel desperate. Some may simply feel that they want an opportunity to understand themselves better, to be the ‘best’ that they can be. Whatever your current experience, Counselling & Psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to ‘unpack’ what is happening for you with a qualified individual, held safely, and in confidence.

I’m a Clinical Psychologist specialising in depression and anxiety, self-esteem, relationships, and stress. With over 12 years experience of working with adolescents and adults, I have learnt that most of the difficulties we face are rooted in our relationship with both ourselves and others. I have a particular interest in high functioning anxiety and high achievers. If on the surface you look like you have it all together, but the silent voice of self-doubt plagues you, then we will likely work well together. I am what I call a 'why person' and like to work with the heart of a matter, rather than treat symptoms at a surface level.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.

People seek counselling for many reasons which can make them feel: Unhappy, depressed, anxious, frightened, angry, frustrated, helpless, out of control, alone, inadequate, chaotic, confused, to name a few. Often we try to deal with these feelings ourselves by possibly putting them out of our minds, bottling them up and keeping 'a stiff upper lip' while the underlying problem remains unresolved and often find ourselves going round in circles. It is good to talk; talking things through can really help.

It may be that you have been struggling with a particular emotional issue for some time and have not yet found a healthy, rational way of managing it. CBT is a talking therapy that is collaborative, structured and short term, aiming to help you gain greater self-awareness of the way you think and the beliefs you have been holding about this particular issue.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Guildford or for a Guildford ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
