Welcome to Cathy’s Counselling Service.  I hope you find what you are looking for here.  If you have any questions, please go to the Contact tab and let’s get talking! 

Specialist Mentoring is an opportunity for students in higher education to receive support with health issues or learning difficulties in a safe and non-judgemental environment.  I work with you throughout your studies and assist you in building confidence and skills that you will use throughout your career.

I work mainly online, so wherever you are we can connect – I also provide face to face meetings if you feel this is more suitable for you and you attend a university in my catchment area.

I am a Specialist Mentor, Psychodynamic Counsellor and am qualified to work online.

Look toward the changes you make in this precious time.
