Kate Jacques Counselling & Psychotherapy

Kate Jacques - psychotherapist.

As a CBT, Psychodynamic, PCT, TA trained counsellor, psychotherapist and certified NLP practitioner, I am able to use different approaches to obtain the best possible result.

I offer confidentiality and a safe, comfortable and non-judgemental environment for you to explore your inner emotions. My aim is to equip you with the tools and techniques to enable you to lead full and productive lives and find a positive way forward.

I have many years experience working with people suffering from relationship issues, depression and selfesteem. I am also actively involved in two major charities, both of which support individuals and families through the grieving process.

Based in Truro, I have surgeries in Redruth and St Ives, Cornwall.

Methods of Therapy

I've listed brief explanations on the various methods of therapy we may use.


  • Transactional Analysis Therapy (TA)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Person Centred Therapy (PCT)
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Self expression through Art

The theory of TA is that everyone has the capacity to think and that people make decisions which can be changed to determine their own life story and destiny.

Integral to this idea is the understanding that each person has importance, validity and deserves equality of respect.

With CBT we would work together to identify and solve your issues. I would aim to help you overcome difficulties by assisting you with changing your thinking, behaviour and emotional responses.

PCT is a form of talk therapy, together we would create an environment for you that allows you to find your own solutions to your problems.

Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP methods provide a structure for you to explore your inner world. "Zetetic NeuroBody Work" starts with your feelings and emotions and may involve movement as well as talking.

Psychodynamic therapy is an approach which attempts to get you to bring your feelings to the surface, so that you can experience them and understand them; peeling back the layers of an onion is a fair analogy.

Self expression through Painting & Drawing enables you to explore your emotions by "hands on creativity", this is particularly beneficial if you find it difficult to express yourself verbally.
