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. In addition to my private practice, I work in school and prison settings and have 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, Anxiety 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 code of ethics and am entered on their Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. Counselling has largely been unregulated in the past, but the BACP register is the first psychological therapist register to be accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health. This means that members of the public can now feel safe in choosing a counsellor or psychotherapist who meets all the training and qualification requirements to work competently and professionally.
