Counselling provides people with an opportunity, a space, within which they can explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions in a safe and trusting environment. By providing support and a suitable environment HumAnima CIC’s clients are invited to explore and address any issues, challenges or concerns they would like to. Counselling can help with a wide variety of concerns which might include anger, bereavement, depression, anxiety, issues surrounding faith, sexuality, domestic violence, debt, drug misuse and stress.

HumAnima CIC’s uniqueness comes in its ability to provide you with the choice of an additional approach to your counselling experience – in the form of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). In HumAnima CIC’s case this technique will mainly involve a trained and temperament assessed Therapy Dog being present in the room during the counselling session. This has already been reported in several papers as being sufficient to reduce anxiety, increase therapeutic rapport thus contributing towards the client’s positive therapeutic progress. It is important to point out that different approaches suit different people. Where one approach may work for one person, it may not for another. As a result of this, I may combine the use of the approaches I have developed in order to tailor it to the individual and suit his or her needs. HumAnima CIC has aimed to make counselling sessions as affordable as possible and will take into account an individual’s financial circumstances to accommodate where possible. HumAnima has received support from UnLtd

At HumAnima, we have the following aims:

To support positive mental health and wellbeing
To rekindle and encourage a closer relationship with nature
To promote, enjoy and learn from diversity and equality
To nurture self-fulfilment and personal growth
To provide an open, honest and responsible service to the community

Because of her interest in nature, Kathryn has become particularly interested in ‘Green Care’. This is a term which encompasses the many forms of therapeutic and beneficial interactions with nature such as Animal Assisted Interventions, Ecotherapy, Social and Therapeutic Horticulture and Care Farming. In 2008 she attended the COST 866 Conference on Green Care in Thessaloniki, Greece where she presented her masters research. This COST initiative has produced impressive results and furthered profound developments in the green care field and continues to do so.
Confidentiality is one of the most important factors when building a relationship with clients. Everything that we discuss within those four walls will remain confidential UNLESS I feel that you may be a risk to yourself or others (especially children). I have a Duty of Care to disclose information that may prevent such harm occurring. I undertake regular supervision during which I discuss my cases in order to be able to develop professionally and to understand and serve my clients better. However, names are not given and your details will remain anonymous. Supervision is a professional requirement that enables me to maintain a high standard and quality of work and helps me to be the best I can be for you. I will take notes after the end of each session that I can refer back to, which will be kept in a locked and secure place. Names are coded. You can always ask for a copy of the notes I keep and these will be kept whilst we work together and for a period of time thereafter, after which they will be destroyed.
Every counsellor is different. Every person is different. Much of our work will be based upon the therapeutic relationship we build. I qualified with a Master of Science in Counselling Psychology at Keele University in 2009. The course is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as a Member I am bound by their Ethical Framework. The BACP are, if you like, the counselling and psychotherapy equivalent of having a “Gas Safe Registered” Engineer. Whilst it is not a legal requirement to be a Member or to be affiliated with the BACP, they are a professional body who have minimum standards and eligibility in order to ensure affiliated practitioners are safe and suitably qualified.
