Katherine Caffrey – Counselling, Supervision & Training

My story

Following an early career in education where I worked as a secondary school teacher, I began training in Person-Centred Counselling in 2007. I was awarded a Diploma in Counselling in February 2011. I value Rogers’ basic principles as the foundation for productive and successful therapeutic work, while exploring a variety of other techniques, such as Play Therapy, to enhance the work that I do.

In 2014 I achieved BACP accreditation and also completed a Diploma in Counselling Supervision, following an integrative approach which incorporates the Person-Centred model, with elements of Kadushin and Carroll.

In addition, I completed a specialist Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People in December 2015, following the SPICC model (Sequentially Planned Integrative counselling for Children).

I worked for 8 years counselling at a high school in Cheshire for children aged 11 – 18, where I set up and established a professional and busy service for students.

Currently I work part time as a counsellor at the University of Liverpool, working  with a variety of presenting issues, including suicidal risk and self-harm.

I also have a small private practice providing supervision and counselling in Southport, Merseyside.
