Cathy Sparkes – Counsellor

Cathy Sparkes

I am an experienced Counsellor, Supervisor, Coach and Trainer.

I have worked for over 30 years with adults who have neurological conditions and their family & friends. For 20 years I worked as a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) in a range of settings including hospitals, rehabilitation units and community services, as a clinician, specialist and manager.

Since 2003, I have worked as a Counsellor (Personal Construct Psychology – PCP) with individuals and groups in their own homes, at my work base or in the community. The unique combination of counselling skills and extensive experience as an SLT enables me to support individuals with communication difficulties and their family & friends.

I provide training courses in a variety of areas including supervision, counselling skills, working with families and PCP. I also offer professional supervision, coaching and mentoring to a range of healthcare professionals.

My own professional development and growth are at the heart of my practice. I receive regular supervision, coaching and mentoring from professionals within and outside the field of PCP, both individually and through groups. For more detailed information go to my website.
