Kate Ede provides a compassionate, empathetic, and confidential space for her clients to explore their thoughts and feelings around life changing events such as bereavement, trauma, or relationship issues. Clients are able to lead the session and work at their own pace. Kate works collaboratively with her clients to develop supportive relationships, helping clients to process difficult thoughts and feelings. She understands that sometimes life experiences can feel overwhelming and uncertain which can leave individuals feeling anxious and affecting behaviour. As a person-centred therapist Kate focuses on the clients’ experience, allowing the client to gain a wider self-awareness and facilitating growth and change. Her approach means she will not tell you what is right or wrong, this is for you to decide, but she will be alongside you as you work through difficult times.
Kate has worked with people who have experienced anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, rape, sexual abuse, gambling, bullying, low self-esteem,bereavement, illness, disabilities, and issues around identity.
Before training as a therapist, Kate previously worked as a Health Care Assistant in the NHS. She then went on to work as a support worker for people with mental health issues and learning disabilities, encouraging her clients to live as independently as they could. Kate’s background in supporting others means she understands the importance of forming positive relationships that promote emotional wellbeing.
Kate Ede is a qualified therapist who trained at Brighton University and gained a Foundation Degree and a BSc in Person-Centred Counselling and is also a member of the BACP. She is working at a private practice at The Awareness Centre in Clapham.
