Therapeutic Counselling Service

About Me

Hello, my name is Kate Griffin and I work with couples and individual adults.


I have experience of working with a broad range of problems and difficulties including the following:

Experience and Accreditations

I am a fully qualified counsellor with a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Integrative).  I studied with the Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Academy (CPTA).  The awarding body was the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).


I studied an Integrative Counselling Diploma which means I studied the following different theories: Person Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis.


During counselling sessions I use a person-centred approach, meaning the sessions are what you want to discuss, and together we will explore your concerns and difficulties.  I also draw on the other theories mentioned above as appropriate.  This helps to offer the right individual support to suit the different needs of each client.


I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Best Practice.

MBACP number: 736350


I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS).

NCS number NCS16-03617


I hold an Enhanced Certificate with the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).

Certificate number:  001539462768


My certificates are held at my private practice and available for you to view.


I am a firm believer in continuous professional development (CPD) and therefore frequently attend short courses and workshops to learn new skills in counselling and improve my knowledge.
