Life is not always easy, it can bring its share of storms, leaving us to seek out a safe place to shelter as we weather those intense and challenging times.  

It may be that you are facing a crossroads in your life, feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or maybe something has happened to you recently, such as a bereavement, the end of a relationship, a traumatic experience - or perhaps things have happened to you in the past that you are still struggling to come to terms with.   

Little tent counselling aims to be that warm and safe shelter, providing a confidential space where together, we can explore these experiences, and how you feel about them. My aim is to listen with empathy and respect, and without judgement. 



I offer both short and long term sessions, and I currently work online or by telephone.
When you first make contact, we can arrange an appointment for an initial free 20 minutes session.  During our first session, we will discuss how it might be to work together, as well as providing you with an opportunity to tell me more about what brought you to counselling.

At the end of this first session, if you decide that you would like further sessions, we can then arrange for this on a regular basis.

A big part of counselling is finding the right counsellor that you feel comfortable to work with and if we decide that we are a good fit, together we will build the foundations, creating the ‘shelter’ in which we will work, it will be our regular place to meet and your safe space to be heard. 

My role is not to advise, or to tell you what to do, but rather to support you as you look at some of the difficulties you have been facing, giving you the time and the space to understand what you have been through, to think about what is important to you, and to figure out what you want for your future. 

If your presenting issues lie outside my area of competence, then I will do my best to signpost you to the right service or appropriate professional.




My name is Kate, and I am an integrative counsellor, meaning I put together different styles of working that would best suit your needs. We are all unique and the same size does not fit all, so it is important that in counselling as well, the modalities and techniques used should be specific to each person.

My background is in both general and mental health nursing, and I am a qualified and fully insured counsellor and a registered member of the British Associations of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).  However, beyond my qualifications and experience, I believe that it is the relationship that we create between us that is imperative to the work we do together.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I am committed to the highest professional, moral, and ethical standards in my work (If you'd like to read BACP's full Ethical Framework please click here). My utmost priority is the safety and wellbeing of my clients, and I receive ongoing professional supervision to ensure that my work adheres to these standards.

I hold an advanced DBS certificate (Disclosure and Barring Service) and am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) so that you can be assured that I safely store your data.

That’s what this storm’s all about”
