I went to see Kate to get some help to understand why I was experiencing some unhelpful and negative feelings and to explore a particularly difficult part of my past that has been haunting me for some years.
This was not an easy thing to do but Kate helped me to feel immediately at ease and I was really pleased at how quickly we started to address some of these issues. She creates a safe and non-judgemental environment and gently asks the right questions so that I was able to unpick and better understand why I was feeling the things I was and to understand them in a different way.
Since I have started working with Kate my understanding and ‘acceptance’ of these feelings has improved as has my levels of confidence and self-respect which was quickly noticed by my friends and colleagues, not just by me! Kate’s approach is gentle and at the same time firm and focused making sure I was addressing the real issues which were not always what I thought they were.
Most significantly though Kate has helped me to help myself by sharing her experience, expertise and a few super helpful techniques that allow me to stop, reflect, understand and take control when I whenever I need to.
