About Kate Thomson

Hello, my name is Kate, and I’m a fully qualified couples’ therapist and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling and a Diploma in Couple and Family Therapy

My aim of relationship therapy is to help you both understand yourselves and each other better.  In order to do this, I will gently challenge your thought processes and equip you with the right tools to help you to manage conflict and yourselves more effectively going forward.

I create a safe, confidential space for you to both to learn, listen and try and understand one another’s viewpoints. Along with helping you explore any unhelpful patterns of behaviour, that might have developed over time, especially if communication has broken down. Together, we will work towards a better understanding of the relationship and what you need as individuals to enable you to move forward in whichever way you choose.

At the start of the first session, I will ask you both what you would like to achieve out of the therapy. Whether you would like to make your relationship work better than it currently is, or if you would like help in separating more amicably. Perhaps you are unsure at this point in time. Rest assured, I will help you find the clarity you need.

The sessions will be tailored for both your individual, and the relationships needs.
