I believe that our life’s work is to become who we are.
We live in a busy world in which we often rush from one activity to another without giving ourselves time to reflect or feel. As a result we lose touch with ourselves.
Psychotherapy has helped me know myself better and to live in an authentic, satisfying and resourceful way. I believe we can all benefit from uninterrupted time to focus.
Psychotherapy and Counselling with Kate McGeever MBACP (Accred)
Humanistic psychotherapy involves looking at the whole of the person. The relationship between the therapist and client is fundamental to a positive outcome in this work. I therefore will find ways of working with each individual to suit them. This may involve dealing with unresolved issues from the past, working in the present using Gestalt experiments or formative exercises and PBSP structures.
I have lived and worked in many different countries and am now based in Islington. I am a parent and a step-parent. Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked as a solicitor in the City. I have been working with clients as a humanistic psychotherapist since 2003.
Areas I work with:
- Addictions, Obsessions & Dependency
- Anger Management & Conflict
- Anxiety & Panic Attacks
- Bereavement, Grief & Loss
- Couples Counselling
- Depression & Mood Swings
- Family Conflict & Crisis Issues
- Group Therapy
- Parent & Step Parenting Issues
- Pesso Boyden Therapy
- Relationship Issues & Problems
- Self-Esteem & Confidence
- Sexual and/or physical abuse in childhood
- Stress & Feeling Overwhelmed
Pesso Boyden Therapy Groups in London with Kate McGeever
Pesso Boyden therapy is a powerful therapy that works in a group context with the use of objects and role players to provide participants with a healing experience to overcome past traumas, wounds and losses.
Kate runs two ongoing (roughly monthly) groups in Islington, which take new participants at the beginning of each term when spaces become available. One is on a Tuesday morning, the other is on a Wednesday evening.
She also runs occasional one day introductions to the method in London.
She has co-led Pesso Boyden residential groups in Wales, Egypt and Spain.
If you would like to be put on the mailing list for either the monthly groups in Islington, the one day introductory days or for the residential groups please contact Kate McGeever using the Pesso Boyden Course enquiry form…
