Your Space.

Your Time.

Socially distanced, face-to-face and online counselling sessions are available for individuals over 18.

Please contact me for further details.

I need to talk....and for someone to really listen....

  • Do you feel you need a safe space to talk privately about your feelings without the fear of judgement?

  • Do you want to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your emotions?

  • Maybe work is getting you down and feeling like something needs to change.

  • Are you feeling stressed, depressed, anxious or not listened to?

  • Do you feel you lack confidence because of low self-esteem?

  • Do you no longer feel "important" and feel frustrated?

  • Are you feeling abused or constrained by a narcissist in your life and finding it difficult to talk to someone that really understands what you are going through?

  • Do you feel that you are "letting people down" or feel that you are being taken advantage of in certain situations?

  • Is sleep being affected due to constant worry or dread and overthinking?

  • Or perhaps you are suffering in silence due to loss, trauma or relationship problems?

  • Have you lost yourself along life's path and want to reconnect with who you know you really are?

  • Are you on the Autistic Spectrum or have been diagnosed with ADHD and want to connect with somebody who will understand you?

  • Or is there something else on your mind that you want to address?

 

Now imagine...

 

  • How would it feel to take back control of your life?

  • What would a stress-free day look and feel like to you?

  • What could you achieve with better self-confidence and higher self-esteem?

  • How would it feel to move on and heal from narcissistic abuse, be it from a partner, family member or work colleague?

  • How would a better work-life balance help in your relationships, both personal and professional?

  • Being able to say "No" with fewer people-pleasing pressures and without guilt.

  • Investing time in your own personal development to help you to get the most out of your life?

  • Getting a better night's sleep.

  • Feeling valued by yourself and by others.

  • Having the confidential space to work through personal and emotional issues that may be getting in your way or holding you back.

  • Feeling calmer and less anxious.

  • Having healthier boundaries with yourself and others and feeling more assertive.

  • Imagine feeling EMPOWERED and more like the real you.

Quintessence Counselling can be there with you to work through whatever is on your mind,

and to help you start living the life that you deserve.

About Kat

Bsc. (Hons) Psych, Fd. Couns. SNCPS (Acc.)

Hi, my name is Kat and I am a Senior Accredited member of The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS). This means I have prooved to be an experienced and fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor that works with individuals who are over 18 from my private practice in Tardebigge Court, Redditch, Worcestershire. I also offer Online Counselling sessions to anyone in the UK.

There are many unique reasons that someone like yourself is seeking counselling. Sometimes we simply cannot hear our own voice within the noise of our lives. I frequently see clients that feel pushed and pulled in all directions and this can "off-centre" our unique individuality.

I invite you to a safe, confidential environment for you to explore and make sense of your feelings which in turn can help change the way they react to your emotions. I use my intuitive nature to really hear you and connect some of the underlying dots that may have been missed by yourself or others in the past. Through our work together building a trusting and honest relationship, you are free to grow and be who you truly are without judgement. This can help you understand yourself on a much deeper level, opening up a wider perspective on your life- past, present and future and create a better relationship with yourself and others.

You can read more about me and what past clients have to say here.

What is Person Centred Counselling?

Counselling That Makes a Difference

Every day we are pushed and pulled in all kinds of directions because of family, work and relationships. Sometimes things happen to us in life that can deeply affect us for whatever reason and therefore can find it difficult to open up to friends and family members about these problems. As a result, we may not be able to make sense of our behaviours and emotions on our own.

 

Counselling can help bridge the gap and reconnect you to your thoughts and feelings. By creating an empathic and trusting therapeutic relationship together, you are invited to share the innermost thoughts and feelings that may be blocking your path somehow. Maybe you do not know what is in your way and want to work through what is on your mind with someone in confidence and without judgement. My private counselling space can facilitate exploring and making sense of your thoughts and feelings. In turn, this may enable you to feel more empowered and in control of your life. Through our work together, you really are free to grow and be who you truly are.

How can Person Centred Counselling help you?

The purpose of this style of counselling can:

  • Help you reconnect with your inner self without the influence of others

  • Assist in the exploration of your feelings

  • Help you cope better with day-to-day stresses

  • Address patterns of thinking and understand your inner critical voice

  • Facilitate in discovering your true and best potential

  • Create a safe space in which you are encouraged to be open and honest with the areas in which you can change

  • Help you recognise your own strength, explore your identity and what it means to be you

  • Help you feel heard and understood

Carl Rogers, the founder of Person Centred Therapy believed that a safe unique therapeutic relationship that is built on trust and confidentiality, can be created by three main conditions: unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence.

As an experienced person-centred counsellor, I offer my clients these three core conditions to help facilitate therapeutic healing and growth. Explore with me in the following section how these three core conditions might feel to you and that if taken outside the counselling room, could help you facilitate healthier relationships with others and, more importantly, with yourself.

Unconditional Positive Regard

Positively valuing you as a whole person

 

Acceptance and warmth shown to all parts of the client, unconditionally.

"I don't have to pretend to be something I'm not"

"I don't have to water down my feelings to protect someone else feelings...but be challenged when unhelpful thoughts or behaviours persist"

Empathy

Deeply feeling & sensing the clients unique experience

I understand the importance of feeling deeply understood and having someone step into your shoes to truly comprehend your experiences from your perspective. Sometimes, being able to sense and reflect on something that may be on the edge of your own awareness can create a strong feeling of empathy. This empathy can help strengthen the trust within our counselling relationship and enrich your own self-awareness.

Empathy is truly a complex and profound process of being with you, understanding your feelings and experiences.

Congruence

Responding to you openly and genuinely

Congruence is about me, the therapist responding to you, the client with openness and genuine care, creating an atmosphere of authenticity, transparency, and realness in our conversations.

 

This essential condition provides a safe space for you to share your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment, empowering you to be your true self without any shame or limitations.
