Kate Heavey is a proud passionate qualified BACP Accredited online counsellor, online psychotherapist and online relationship practitioner.
Part of being human is that we can all be challenged with relationships and life events.
I trained as a counsellor as, having worked with people all my life, I know we are all capable of living a fulfilled life.
I believe in change and I believe that leopards can change their spots if they want to.
I have over 35 years’ experience of working with relationship and I am very personable believing that ‘people buy people’. I have spent all my working life in people facing roles in the corporate world with the last 15 years specifically in the mental health field.
My attributes are being friendly, passionate, calm, understanding, empathic, sincere, interested, fair, compassionate, non-judgemental, neutral, unbiased, committed, interactive, resilient, respectful and reflective.
