I offer both individual & couple counselling & supervision to other counsellors.
My training is in Psychodynamic Counselling which means I explore links between our current challenges and our childhood experiences. I am interested in how our unconscious mind drives us & I work with defence mechanisms, resistance or projections of which we may be largely unaware but which may be causing us challenges in our lives. I place emphasis on establishing a safe & trusting environment in which to build a strong working relationship. Please follow the link to my website for further information.
Catarina M. Rato
I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor working with a wide range of issues and EMDR therapist. I am trauma informed and have considerable experience working with trauma and PTSD.
I work with a Person-Centred approach and I take the view that people are able to find their own ways of dealing with life’s challenges and I encourage you to trust in your ability to make changes and appreciate your own resources. My clients often find that the insight and awareness that comes from the counselling process can help them find a fresh appreciation of who they are and new ways of dealing with difficult issues.
I am a qualified professional counsellor and trained in Person Centred Counselling at the University of Brighton.
I work in a humanistic way, which means that I believe that every person is unique and has the ability to grow towards their own full potential and find their own answers within themselves. My wish is to help you explore and make sense of your situation and be with you on your journey as you work through your issues.
I strongly believe in finding a way of working that most suits you, and in offering you a space that most reflects your needs, so I sometimes draw on other approaches to produce a unique therapy adapted to your own wants and wishes.
