Catherine Fitzpatrick - Counsellor & Clinical Supervisor
Counselling offers a space to talk through and make sense of anything that may be causing difficulties or affecting you in your life. The relationship between counsellor and client is confidential and creates a safe, trusting, supportive space where you are able to talk honestly about experiences and feelings, without concern that you will be judged. Counselling can help you gain insight and understanding into patterns in your thinking, feeling or behavior. This enables you to make changes and move forward in your life, leading to improvements in your relationship with yourself and others. It may also help you come to terms with what cannot be changed.
As a psychodynamic therapist, I consider how your past experiences relate to your present difficulties and may be contributing to the cause of your distress. You may have a general feeling that something isn’t right & may not know what is causing you difficulties. Counselling can help you to gain some clarity.
Areas I work with include - abuse - anxiety - anger - bereavement/loss - depression – health - identity - relationship issues - self-esteem - self-harm - sexuality - stress - trauma - work related issues
I have 14 years experience working therapeutically with adults and young people in many different settings, including Higher Education, voluntary and the private sector. I have set up & managed 2 school/sixth form counselling services, working for 10 years with young people (aged 11-20) and academic professionals. At present I work in a University Counselling Service alongside my private practice.
I am BACP Accredited and registered.
My qualifications include a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling & a Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision.
Initial sessions are assessments to see whether counselling and my approach is an appropriate option for you.
