Has life become a struggle? First comes the initial drink, then you're not able to take control and say enough is enough. After a long week at work, you feel stressed and constantly crave a drink BUT after, you just sit there and ask yourself 'why do I do this' - you just don't know the answer? For years you thought your lifestyle was sustainable but now you realise that it is having an impact on the people around you and you're tired of going round in maddening circles. Ultimately you fear destroying your relationships and losing the love from your, partner, kids, family and friends.

Hello and welcome. My name is Katherine Coates and I am a qualified Person Centred therapist. My journey to become a qualified counsellor started after I entered therapy myself so am well aware of how terrifying taking the first steps in asking for help can be. Therefore, I aim to offer a safe space where you feel accepted and valued enough that you can reveal your vulnerabilities without fear of judgement.

I have experience of working with individuals who present with diagnoses such as ADHD, autism, one or more of the many different types of personality disorder, and with individuals who experience psychotic states of mind. That said, anyone can engage in therapy at any time, and, for any reason. Most people who seek counselling and psychotherapy do not come with a diagnosis; they come because they are struggling with what’s going on in their life and/or what’s going on in their mind, and they are looking for change.

I believe that psychotherapy is more of an art form than a science, however, my degree is in social science and as such the theories and concepts used in forensic and social psychology influence my practice.

I'm an integrative counsellor, which means that I don't believe there is a one size fits all approach when it comes to therapy. So whether you prefer structured CBT or to express yourself through the arts I will tailor therapy according to your needs. I have years of experience working with both women, survivors of abuse and young people, having worked for respected charities like Women's Aid, NSPCC and The National Domestic Violence Helpline. I have a good understanding of the issues that effect these groups, and I feel passionate about enabling both to have their voices heard.

I find that most clients are struggling because they lack coping strategies to manage distress, but also often because they are out of touch with what is important to them, their values, their strengths, their preferred life directions, and there are barriers such as anxiety, fear and/or emotional discomfort which lead to avoidance and other unhelpful behaviours. In turn, these factors thwart their goals and increase distress. Clients want reduced distress and increased pleasure and engagement with a life in which they can feel confident and empowered.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in City of London, London?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in City of London, London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
