Who am I?
My name is Katharine Mulligan and I have worked as a counsellor since 2000. I am an accredited psychodynamic counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and registered with the United Kingdom Register for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (UKRCP)
I graduated with an Honours degree in Psychology from Plymouth University in 1987 and I subsequently completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling in 2004. I went on to study for a Diploma in Systemic Theory at The Tavistock Clinic in London, which I completed in 2010.
I have previously worked as a Senior Counsellor seeing individuals at Gloucestershire Counselling Service. I went on to manage and work in The Child and Family Service. In this role I managed and co-ordinated a team of family counsellors and child psychotherapists and worked with families as a Counsellor.
I now work in Private practice on the Gloucestershire/Oxfordshire border, near Lechlade on Thames, a 20 minute drive from either Cirencester or Witney.
Issues that I work with
I am interested in offering counselling for individuals, couples, young people and families. I have experience in working with many issues including depression, bereavement, anxiety, abuse, separation, adolescent dilemmas and family difficulties. My style of work lends itself to explore problems in depth on either a short term or long term basis.
I am committed to continuing professional development as part of BACP policy for accreditation. As well as regularly attending counselling workshops, conferences and seminars I have completed a Diploma on Applied Systemic Theory, which supports my work with couples and families.
I hold professional liability insurance and an enhanced CRB check. I also have regular professional clinical supervision in line with BACP policy for good practice and adhere to their code of ethics in all aspects of my work.
