Your health and wellbeing is of paramount importance to me and I am following government guidelines carefully.
During the gradual easing of lock down I continue to offer remote sessions via Zoom, Facetime or by phone.
In addition I am resuming a limited number of face to face sessions provided clients are able to follow social distancing guidance and are comfortable in working from my consulting room.
Please contact me for further information and availability.
I am sending out my thoughts and wishes at this time.
Catherine Sharp MBACP (Accred)
My name is Catherine Sharp. I am a BACP accredited and UKCP registered psychotherapist. I currently work both in private practice and as an affiliate for various insurance companies, the NHS, and a local youth charity.
My core training is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. Briefly translated I believe we are shaped by the conditions, circumstances and the relationships that we have with the significant people around us as we grow up. It also understands that some of these patterns of relationships, good or bad, might be repeated in later relationships. Part of my work might involve exploring a client’s history in order to understand the influences from the past that have contributed to the person you are at present.
I have also trained in Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. These two therapies are useful for providing step-by-step interventions towards personal goals. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be very useful in helping clients to recognise the link between negative thought patterns and behaviour. As a therapist I would help the client to explore more positive coping strategies and, by working together, introduce changes that result in the client feeling happier and more in control of their lives.
I also believe that the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client is vital in bringing about beneficial change. I take care to work at a pace that is suitable for each separate person and encourage feedback whenever possible.
I charge £60 per session for individual clients, which lasts up to an hour. I am able to give concessions for students or for anybody showing proof of benefits.
Charges for couples are £70 per session, which lasts up to an hour. The same concessions apply.
Various payment methods are available. I accept cash or payment by bank transfer.
Sessions that are cancelled with less than 48 hours notice are chargeable. However I do not charge for pre-arranged breaks or holidays, either my own or the client's.
I am able to see clients in my consulting room at home in Thorpe Waterville. Thorpe Waterville is a quiet village three miles from the A14 at Thrapston and within a 20 minute drive of Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough and Peterborough. The consulting room is comfortable, quiet and relaxed with discreet parking and entry.
