Humanistic Integrative Counsellor: Katie Hope, BA, PG Dip HIC, MBACP.

I am a fully qualified humanistic integrative counsellor trained at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling.  In addition to my private practice, I have worked with the Southmead Project counselling traumatised adult victims of child abuse; with Mind, counselling people with a variety of mental health issues; and with Trauma Foundation South West, counselling refugees and asylum seekers.Katie Hope

I am warm and compassionate and will support you to find your way through your difficulties. I offer a variety of ways of working to suit your particular needs.  I find the key to counselling is building a trusting relationship.  I love my work and find working with people rewarding and humbling.

I have helped people cope with difficulties such as trauma, anxiety, depression, abuse, bereavement, pregnancy loss and relationship problems.  I’m particularly interested in how for many people, a strong inner critic can be the greatest challenge.  This is often as a result of difficult issues in childhood, and the strength of positive relationships and self-compassion can help reduce that inner criticism. I am trained in working with the body around trauma and anxiety, and find that this is an effective way to soothe overwhelming feelings.

I offer both short-term counselling focusing on a particular issue or longer-term therapy with ongoing support.  I am fully insured and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework.
