Therapy & Counselling for women
Hello, my name is Kate Merrick and I am a professionally trained and qualified psychotherapist and counsellor (MA UKCP, MBACP), offering individual therapy to women in West London.
As a therapist, I draw on the philosophy that as human beings, we have an innate creative wisdom - an inherent capacity to solve our own problems and cope with difficult situations.
In our work together, it is my intention to help you see your situation more clearly and to begin to identify outmoded thoughts and patterns of behaviour that may be getting in the way of you living your life in the way that you would like. My approach supports a gentle integration of mind, body and spirit, strengthening our existing resources and developing new ones, which can lead to a greater sense of safety, satisfaction, autonomy and freedom.
Though I work with all aspects of female identity and women’s health, I have a particular interest in working with women who; feel stuck, unsatisfied, unrecovered from old wounds, lost, anxious, suffer low self esteem, have lost their voice, sense of self, and lack an internal sense of authority; those who feel disembodied and disempowered, navigating challenging mother - daughter relationships or those who do not feel they have transitioned from girlhood into womanhood.
