Kathy Sutherland

Hi, I’m Kathy. I work as a counsellor, counselling supervisor and as a nutritional therapist.

I have experience of working with people with many different issues. For example, loss of direction in your life, dealing with change, relationships, depression, anxiety, or lack of self esteem.

I have particular experience in working with people facing bereavement or loss and in working with people with relationship difficulties. I also have an interest in problems arising from birth and parenting, including when things don’t go to plan (eg the death of a child, difficulties with pregnancy, premature birth or miscarriage).

In addition to Cambridge Counselling Service, I work as a counsellor for CRUSE (the specialist bereavement service) and for BLISS (the service for premature babies and their parents). I see individuals and couples and one-off sessions are sometimes available with me. I also offer supervision to other counsellors.

I offer some appointments after 5pm, as well as appointments during office hours.
