My name is Kate Smalldon, and I'm a qualified, BACP registered, integrative counsellor/psychotherapist, located near the city centre of Newport, South Wales. My aim for setting up a therapy practice was to provide help and support to those who are struggling with life's challenges.
Do you feel as though something in your life isn't right? Maybe you've found yourself at a crossroads, unsure of where to go next. You might want support with reaching a decision, or facing your past. You might be looking to address relational or behavioural patterns, or want someone to help you cope through a current crisis. It might be none of those things.
It could be difficult to explain, and others don't seem to understand:- all you know is that you don't want to feel like it anymore, and you want things to be different.
As the name Ellipsis suggests, I want to help you break the silence. It can be really difficult to open up to someone about something that is deeply personal, which is why I will take the process at your own pace, offering an impartial and confidential space.
You are free to disclose as much or as little as you wish, and you are free to leave or return to therapy at any time.
I merge the following theories to create a unique way of working, tailored to suit you and your needs:
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)
Whatever the problem is, every person, situation and experience is different. Tell me your story. I want to understand.
