Katherine Ward, MBACP, MA, BA (Hons) Couples Counselling & Relationship Therapy

About Me

I have a masters in Relationship Therapy and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I currently work for a charity counselling couples, and in private practice.

My experience ranges from various clinical settings. I've worked volunteering in an inner city London school counselling adolescents. ​I am a registered baby bonding practitioner, and have an understanding of the mechanisms of early bonding and attachment. 

 

I've also worked in the NHS; I was a district nurse visiting people in their own homes primarily carrying out palliative and terminal care. Throughout this, I supported couples and families as well as my patients. ​ 

I have a special interest in the unique impact of sex in different relationships. I know it can sometimes be an uncomfortable topic, but it is never a taboo in my counselling room. I work hard -but at your pace- to overcome any discomfort and support constructive and sometimes vital conversations around sexual intimacy.

 

I believe in creating a therapeutic environment where we can gently create a balance of acceptance and change in your life as well as your relationships.​​
