Struggling to find motivation?Feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed?Trying to cope with new challenges?

There are times when we all need someone alongside us while we:- Re-define coping mechanisms that no longer serve us
- Process a traumatic experience (be it abuse, separation or physical injury/accident)
- Grieve a loss
- Reach our potential
Whether you are feeling isolated or surrounded by colleagues and friends, therapy can offer a space to try out different ways of being or express feelings and emotions not always possible elsewhere.Sometimes words aren't enough to express or process feelings and emotions so we could incorporate several different art forms dependent on what best facilitates our work. Since we would just use the arts to explore your unique process no familiarity, skills or previous experience is needed.

About Me

My name is Kate and I offer Counselling and Art Psychotherapy sessions in Leigh-on-Sea, Southend, Essex. I am available on Monday evenings, Wednesdays and Saturday mornings.I have informed and developed my approach in local community services, Mind and the NHS. Further, it has been through my own intensive therapy as a client, required as part of my training, that I have developed the insight and personal awareness to ensure I am fully engaged and focused on your journey.I believe we all have the tools to live healthy and fulfilling lives but that the effects of developmental, traumatic or disruptive life experiences can sometimes get in the way of that. In a space where the intention is to focus on your needs and your hopes we can open up the possibility to move towards the potential you hold within.If you're interested in finding out more or to arrange an initial session please contact me and hold in mind the importance of finding the right therapy and the right therapist for you.
