My name is Gaye Mitchell and I’m a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based a Relationship Counselling Rochester. I’m accredited by the National Counselling Society (NCS) and experienced in both individual and couple counselling along with family therapy.
I an Integrative Counsellor, which means I use a combined approach to counselling, bringing together different elements of specific therapies. I don’t believe that there is a ‘one size fits all’ approach for all couples in every situation. So therefore I tailor my style to suit each individual couples needs.
I do understand, that taking the first step into couple counselling can be quite difficult. However, rest assured, my approach is warm, understanding and empathetic. I shall provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space.
When our relationships go off track, it can lead to both parties feeling hurt and resentful. This then tends to result in one or both feeling less inclined to want to communicate with the other. I will help you both’really’ listen to your partners perspective and support you both in learning how to start communicating effectively again.
My work has been diverse and I have vast experience in working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships. I provide a non-judgemental safe, confidential environment where we can work through your relationship challenges together. I’ll then support you in finding a way forward that is agreeable to you both.
I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Kathy Hoggart Kathy Hoggart is amazing! With Kathy’s help my husband and I are back ‘on track’. Kathy reassured us that both of our feelings count and because of this Kathy gained our trust instantly. Kathy quickly helped us to identify what could be causing our issues and how we can use simple techniques and solutions to resolve/manage/accept them. Kathy had a very thoughtful approach throughout our sessions so that they were well planned and logical but also free flowing and flexible and without her being overbearing or dictating the pace. We had quick exercises that we willingly did in between our sessions that also really helped with our conversation during them. The support Kathy gave us to resolve our issues was superb. The tips and encouragement Kathy gave us helped us to work well together during the sessions. We were also able to work independently so that we made good progress from one session to the next. We are still using those tips now and we still remind each other when we need to of the wonderful guidance Kathy gave so that we can continue to benefit from it whenever we need to.
Kaye Barney I have recently been helped by Kaye Barney and through my sessions I can honestly say I have felt improvement. She helped create a open and friendly platform in which we could discuss the relevant topics that helped ease my overall stress and anxiety. I would recommend Kaye very highly and I would not hesitate to book further sessions if I felt the need. I would also recommend the online sessions and found them far less stressful that adding extra travel to my day.
For Julie and I, counselling was an opportunity for change. We knew we were stuck and needed the time, the tools, the space, the bravery and impetus to begin the process of change.
Tim gave us what we needed and at a pace we could manage. Tim joined with us in our exploration so the Julie-and- I duo became a trio with Tim; working together to resolve our issues.
After each session we felt empowered to take away what we had discussed so that we may consider this in greater depth in our own time.
He was never the passive wall or mirror (which would have irritated and blocked our learning) but an active participant in our striving to move forward .
Clive and Julie
