Hello, I'm Cate, a qualified, Gestalt counsellor. My counselling room is located in the centre of Eastbourne where I am a member of a counselling collective, Eastbourne Counselling Hub.
My experience covers a range of issues from anxiety and depression to low self-esteem, and bereavement.
Before becoming a counsellor I worked as an editor in publishing. I was also university researcher and tutor in literature and philosophy.
As a young woman, I had my own life-changing experience with counselling which stayed with me and inspired me to become a counsellor myself.
I'd welcome the chance to meet you and discuss how we might work together.
At times life we can all face difficult and challenging periods which leave us feeling alone, stuck, overwhelmed and confused.
Counselling offers a safe, confidential place where you can explore your experiences, conflicts and concerns with your counsellor who will help you discover the growth and change you want.
Gestalt therapy is a form of humanistic therapy that sees each individual as unique in the way we experience and see the world. As a Gestalt therapist, I believe that we all have the capacity to create change and find meaning in our lives through a deeper awareness and understanding of our own experience.
I value you as a unique person and offer an accepting, creative and flexible approach working alongside you, at your pace, to support you through this process.
