Hello, I’m Kate. I’m an experienced, accredited/registered therapist with a private practice in Lewes, offering safe, affordable therapy for adults. Former clients have said I am calm, supportive, non-judgemental, empathic, professional and boundaried. I work face-to-face or online on Zoom. All current safety measures are in place.
I have a Msc/Clin. Dip, in psychotherapy and counselling from the Metanoia Institute in London. Before this, I trained in psychotherapy and counselling at London’s Regent College. I am accredited with both professional bodies, UKCP and BACP. I have also worked as a writer and editor.
I believe that one size does not fit all and to be effective I need to tailor my approach to you, the individual: what may suit one person may not suit another.
I am therefore an integrative therapist. This means I work within my own framework, integrating different but complementary strands of therapy from psychodynamic and humanistic traditions, in particular TA, as well as Gestalt and Person Centred. I also have some training in CBT methods, although I am not a CBT therapist and do not give homework, for example.
The psychodynamic/developmental part of my approach examines how the past can impact the present, and how internal conflicts can lead to emotional suffering. Humanistic views seek to understand how more conscious thoughts and feelings shape behaviour; and how you perceive yourself or subjectivity: what it is like to be you for example, and what conditions do you need to grow as a person.
Initial sessions are £35. Thereafter it is £50.
I suggest an initial session or assessment to see whether we are right for each other. There is no obligation to continue.
I charge £50 per session. You can pay by bank transfer weekly or monthly; or by cash per session.
A session lasts 50 minutes and usually is held once a week at the same time and place.
Nowadays I am quicker to respond by email than phone. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or leave a message on 07973 661080 and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
I work from a quiet location in South Way in Lewes, East Sussex (see map below).
There is free on-road parking, and bus stops nearby.
