Katherine Usher

Katherine is in training with CCPD for the BACP accredited Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. This approach combines a number of therapeutic models and emphasises personal experience, attention to all aspects of ourselves and a relationship between client and counsellor. The work is collaborative, not directive, and will focus on how you are now, while considering how past experiences and adapted behaviours might be influencing your present.

Katherine has extensive experience working with people to develop self-esteem, self-expression and communication skills, in educational and community settings. With over a decade in arts-education charities and a year working in-school with a pupil with autism, to support their educational and social development. Recently, she has been working for environmental and sustainability organisations across the private and public sectors and still advises on relaxed performances, making the arts more accessible for those with neuro-diversities and learning difficulties. This work is about empowering people in self-exploration, developing self-confidence and finding a place of acceptance which she carries into her training and clinical practice.

Katherine brings her diverse life-experience together with an empathetic, honest, pragmatic and straight-forward approach to counselling and is deeply committed to helping people to achieve better mental health and happiness.
