My name is Kate Angell and I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist. My qualifications include a First Class degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Coventry University and a Psychology degree (2:1) from Sheffield University. I have been involved with various mental health organisations over the last 10 years; including Anxiety UK, Samaritans and Leicester Counselling Centre, where I currently see clients. I have also worked for the National Lottery supporting winners and their families. I have worked with clients from all backgrounds with a wide range of issues. My areas of special interest are Adverse Childhood Experiences and Low Self-Esteem.
My training is accredited and recognised by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a member of the BACP, I adhere to their ethical standards for good practice and am entered on their Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. The BACP register is the first psychological therapists' register to be accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health and administered by an independent body, accountable to parliament. This means that members of the public can now choose a counsellor or psychotherapist belonging to a register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, which in turn means greater peace of mind.
