Kate Heavey BA (Hons) FdSc BACP (Accredited) - Individual and Couples Counsellor and Psychotherapist currently offering online counselling and psychotherapy via Zoom, WhatsApp, Skype or the telephone only.
**Update 22 September 2020**
Due to Government Guidelines announced today stating 'if you can work from home you should' I have moved my practice back to Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or telephone counselling.
Personally I connected with 'my risk is your risk' and the only way I can eliminate risk completely is by working from home rather than my Ripley Office. For me, and I know for clients, this is a sad time yet as our mental health is paramount it is a necessary responsible decision.
I shall release appointments as and when they become available and some will be 'online only' (Monday) and others will start online with a view to moving to face to face when able to (Tuesday and Wednesday).
Thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times.
Welcome to my website which I hope will give you an idea of how I work as a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. I am an individual and couples counsellor and I am very passionate about my work believing change is available to all.
What is interesting in life is that we are only born with two fears.....fear of falling and fear of loud noises; everything else (thoughts, feelings and behaviour) is learnt.
And with regards to relationship everything we learn is in relationship and what is learnt can be unlearnt if we want to.
Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling / psychotherapy our sessions are confidential and separate from your everyday life.
I work with men and women on an individual and couples basis.
I have extensive experience in a wide spectrum of issues including:-
(Being diagnosed with a label and finding a word that accurately matches experience, whether internally or externally, can help something shift inside bringing understanding and awareness yet each person is so much more than a label being unique, special and different).
**Please note that face to face counselling is currently suspended due to Government Guidelines**
