I understand that sometimes talking to friends and family is not enough and you need to be heard without worrying about the effect on others. Counselling is your time, a space to talk to through the things you may need to talk about the most, but acknowledge the least. I'm a counsellor and psychotherapist, experienced and passionate about the positive benefits of working through any issues that you may be experiencing. I offer a friendly, non judgemental, confidential practice for you to begin your counselling journey. Please contact me for an initial chat to see how counselling may help. I work with both individuals and couples.

If you’re at a point in your life where you’re struggling, feeling low, anxious, or alone with your problems, I would genuinely like to listen, understand and help you find a way forward. It is not always easy to speak to those closest to us, especially if worried about how they might respond. You don’t need to be alone with your thoughts, feelings, or issues anymore. I will listen with compassion and really hear what it is like for you and work with you to help you see a way forward.

Understanding why you think/feel/behave the way you do can be an important step to changing. Maybe you're stuck and need to explore the stuck feeling, can't move on from the past or maybe you'd like to take accountability for your actions and move forward in a better way. Do you need support with a pressing issue? Bringing to your awareness/exploring childhood anxieties/traumas/experiences and recognising how they've impacted your life can also lead to the changes you may desire. There's lots of reasons for therapy, what do you need from it? I offer phone, video and walk&talk sessions. Get in touch for a free, short consultation.

I believe that relationships are really important. We encounter lots of different relationships over the course of our lives: friends, siblings, parents, bosses, co-workers…and then there’s the relationship we have with ourselves. Our unique life experiences inform our thoughts, feelings and behaviours; and sometimes we can get stuck in outdated patterns. Common mental health conditions such as: depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, and addiction, are often symptoms of the effects of adverse life experiences. Treating the underlying causes of whichever symptoms are affecting you can dramatically reduce their impact.

Hello, I'm Katie. I offer psychotherapy and counselling to adults at my private garden office in Bramhall, Stockport and online. I provide a nurturing, open and honest space, where you can talk about your difficulties, without judgment. Having experienced therapy myself, I know it can take time to feel comfortable talking to a stranger, but there is no rush. We will work together at your pace and comfort level. For me, therapy is about getting in touch with who we are. By developing our self-awareness and gaining insight into our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, we can develop the freedom to change what isn't working for us.

I was a client before I was a counsellor and I know from experience that seeking support isn't always easy. My first priority is to make accessing support as stress free as possible by establishing an informal yet supportive environment. By creating a space which is free of judgement and where there is no problem more or less worthy than another, I've helped many people work through some of their toughest moments. I've helped clients of various ages and from a range of backgrounds work through issues including anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, loneliness, relationships, domestic / sexual abuse, loss and trauma.

I use Imago Relationship Therapy with couples which helps you to improve your relationships and become closer to your partner. My role as an Imago therapist is to teach, support and guide you through the Imago Dialogue to deepen your communication and to make a good connection with each other. Through the process you will recognize how early childhood relationship experiences affect how we communicate, behave, and respond to others in adult relationships. In a safe and effective way, you will work out the misunderstandings, reduce conflict, find new ways to bond, and create a joyful and loving relationship.

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 Stockport?
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 Stockport 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.
