Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Hi there I’m Kath, Hello!
I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in private practice with clients on the Autistic Spectrum, as well as anyone who has a neurological difficulty.
I work from my home in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, where I have two therapy rooms, both very different. This enables me to accommodate one to one, parent and child, family, parent waiting in the next room etc. I am very concious of, and have prepared for, most sensory issues, so the rooms are calming, consistent and enabled for the physical challenged. My ethos is, client/young person led, if a person is calm, engaged and comfortable with the therapist and their surroundings, then the theraputic relationship is off to a good start in my experience.
Therapy is not just about what is 'not' making you happy, its about what 'does' make you happy too. I adapt my therapeutic style to meet the needs of the client/young person, using ASD-friendly, Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic strategies, knowledge gained from my own lived experience, theoretical input and play therapy for younger children. The sessions last an hour.
I find humor is an important part of the theraputic process. I work with all cognitive abilities across the age ranges, assisting people in finding clarity within themselves and in the complex world we live in.
