Kate Sibley Professional Counselling Services

Kate has been a qualified counsellor for almost 20 years and is committed to supporting clients to manage a wide range of emotional issues such as relationship difficulties, family issues, divorce/separation and parenting. Kate also works with addiction, bereavement and anxiety.

Kate is qualified as a life and performance coach and she uses her broad range of experience to offer a safe, confidential, caring but objective and supportive environment for clients to gain their own insight, understanding and improved emotional wellbeing. She works with individuals or couples and families and her aim is to enable clients to work out their own strategies to reduce conflict or to better manage their emotional or sensitive situations.

Kate also works as a family consultant.

The family consultant (usually a person educated to degree level and having a professional qualification such as Counselling/Psychology or other similar discipline) is very supportive of the whole collaboration and mediation process as it can allow clients a non-judgemental opportunity to explore and adjust to new roles, test out areas of misunderstanding or potential conflict and free up communication. It can also help with concerns that some couples may have regarding practical issues and can offer an opportunity to work out and maintain positive co-parenting relationships for the future. This may also prove to be more cost effective in the longer term as it will normally leave the lawyers to concentrate on the legal aspects of the process.
