Kathy Sutherland

Hi, I’m Kathy. I work as a counsellor, supervisor, and coach.

I have experience of working with people with many different issues. For example, loss of direction in your life, dealing with change, relationships, depression, bereavement and pregnancy issues. My style is interactive with a common-sense conversational approach. I think it is important to work in a collaborative and encouraging way: one size does not fit all. I therefore work in an integrative way and try to work with you in a way to suit your needs. I have worked with lots of different issues in a variety of settings including a NHS GP surgery, Cruse, Centre 33 and the Cambridge University Counselling Service.

Working with individuals and couples, I offer both short and long term therapy depending on your requirements.

I do have a particular interest in working with bereavement or loss, relationship difficulties or people facing a transition or change in their life. I also have a strong interest and experience in problems arising from pregnancy, birth, and parenting, including the death of a baby or child, premature birth, infertility and miscarriages. I have also trained as a coach and worked in a variety of business settings, so am happy to help you with work-related issues. But whatever brings you to counselling, I am happy to help.
