About Kate            

I have a great curiousity about people.  I like to listen to people and find out about them, and help them to find out what it is they really want, and ultimately, who they are.  I dont want to label you or make judgements about you, but to find out about who you really are, how you think, what is important to you and what your passions are.  

My concern is that you are safe, and that I operate professionally at all times.  I have trained extensively in NLP and am a qualified Master Practitioner and Certified Trainer, as well as an NLP Coach. I have just completed four years of advanced training in Integrative Psychotherapy. This is developmental and relational in orientation, broad ranging and challenging and led to UKCP accreditation as a Psychotherapist.

  • I am a full clinical member of UKCP and am bound by their ethical code which you can find here 
  • I am fully insured and recieve regular supervision from a highly experienced psychotherapist and trainer
  • I am committed to learning and professional and personal development, in order to provide the best service possible to my clients

In addition to this practice, I currently work with young people in a local secondary school and in a Bradford primary school.  I have previously worked with school students and staff at Goole High School, and as a volunteer therapist for Solace surviving exile and persecution, a charity that provides psychotherapy and support to refugees and asylum seekers suffering mental ill health in Leeds and Bradford. 

Before training in psychotherapy I worked in the voluntary sector for nearly twenty years, in a wonderfully varied career that took me to many countries, including living in Kenya and Ethiopia.  I have learnt a great deal from these experiences and bring this learning to my practice.

I love being outside and attempt each year to grow vegetables, some with more success than others.
