Katy Plowright registered psychotherapist BathCounselling & Psychotherapy

As a registered practitioner with The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I provide a professional, confidential and relaxed counselling & psychotherapy service for both male and female clients. I offer short term counselling, focusing on a specific problem such as a bereavement or a life change; or open ended psychotherapy, suitable for a deeper exploration and more thorough review of your life.

Struggling with depression, anxiety, bereavement and relationships issues can impact our daily lives, leaving us not coping or just 'existing'. As a qualified practitioner I can explore with you these and other areas, helping to identify your needs for changing and supporting you to a more rewarding way of living.

I work collaboratively and flexibly with individuals to create an environment which enables exploration of the challenges and struggles encountered in life. I believe counselling is an investment in yourself. Therapy can be used for working through particular difficulties and problems; for personal development; to align yourself back to who you’re meant to be when life has gone off track, allowing a more rewarding way of being.

I work in an Integrative Humanistic way, acknowledging clients have different needs, so no one single approach is sufficient. I can draw on theories from:

  • Humanistic and Existential Psychology
  • Person Centred approach
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Transpersonal Psychology
  • Solution Focused Counselling
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness based practice

Experience & Background:

  • Currently working as a counsellor in a Bereavement Agency since 2003.
  • Drugs & Alcohol Counsellor within an Addictions, Homelessness & Social Exclusion Service.
  • 10 years’ experience of working in HR, Training & Development management roles in a large corporate environment responsible for the health & wellbeing of all employees.
  • 6 years’ experience in Sales Management.

Areas of Interest:

Although I work with a wide range of psychological difficulties and life challenges I have a special interest in working with anxiety, depression, addiction, bereavement, grief and loss, workplace stress or ‘burnout’.
