My name is Catherine Appah. I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and as such abide by their strict ethical framework for good practice in counselling. I have been a counsellor for over 10 years and
I receive regular clinical supervision for my work.
I have BSC in Criminological Psychology and I am also a qualified supervisor.
As a counsellor, my role within this process is to be your support on your journey; to be honest and accepting of you to help you find, accept and see yourself as a whole person.
I run my practice from my home in North West London. I offer complete privacy and discretion in a recently renovated extention, which means you will be comfortable and safe.
What do I offer?.
I offer daytime or evening one-to-one counselling sessions.
My clinical experience includes but is not limited to:
• Anxiety, Depression or Stress
• Self harm, Eating disorders
• Abuse (physical, emotional, verbal, sexual or childhood)
• Domestic violence
• Couple / Relationship counselling
• Low self esteem or low self confidence
• Loss & Bereavement
My Theoretical Approach.
My theoretical model is Integrative as it allows me to draw from different approaches to aid in our work together. However, my specialism is Person Centred. I offer a warm, authentic, accepting therapeutic relationship, in which I am genuinely interested in you and your story. Our work is collaborative, thus empowering and strengthening you as whole person. Together we will endeavour to help you find resources within yourself so that you can work through your problem – whether this is something current or in the past.
The goal is to help you to grow, change and to manage challenges in a constructive way, whilst acknowledging the pain of your difficulties, but working to master them, rather then them mastering you.
