Kate Binnie


I’m a Person-Centred Counsellor offering face to face sessions to adults at Penzance Natural Health Centre.  I work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, self-esteem and life transitions. 
In the 6 years that I have had the privilege of working for CRASAC (Cornwall Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre) and CLEAR (trauma therapy), I have gained particular experience of working with trauma/complex PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).  This has given me insight and understanding of issues such as nervous system/emotional dysregulation, depression, anxiety, dissociation, suicidality, anger, shame, panic attacks, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts and trust/relationship issues.
I offer warmth, empathy and a non-judgmental space in which to explore whatever you need to.  I draw on a range of tools and strategies from my training and experience to support you in making the changes you are seeking.  I hope to invite you into closer connection with yourself so that you can gain greater insight into your limiting patterns and habitual responses to life.  From here, I aim to support you into a more compassionate and accepting relationship with yourself and a gentle exploration of new possibilities for responding so that you may begin living a more fulfilling life.
I would love to hear from you if you think you would like to work with me.  Please get in touch by phone or email.  I am happy to have a brief phone conversation to discuss any questions you may have.  In the first instance, I offer an initial session.  This is a chance for you to meet me and get a sense of how I work, and for me to hear about the issues that you are looking for support with.  If the fit feels right, you are welcome to book further sessions. 
Initial session (1 hour) - £25
Subsequent sessions (1 hour) - £50
