A confidential space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and life challenges, while learning ways to improve and grow.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website

My journey into talking therapy and coaching started in 2002 with a conversation between myself and a medical colleague. I had qualified as a nurse in 1987, and though I loved many aspects of nursing, I wanted to be in a job that enabled me to spend more time speaking and supporting the person in need. My friend suggested I retrain as a psychotherapist… so off I went to London and did just that.

In 2003, I qualified as a Solution-Focused Psychotherapist, and in 2004 I completed a course in Reverse Therapy, an innovative body-mind training that teaches clients how to interpret and act on the symptom messages from the body. In 2020 I completed a Positive Psychology for Coaching course with Animas and in 2025 I will graduate from the Open University with a BA (Hons) Social Sciences (Psychology).

21 years on, I use all the tools from my therapeutic training to support clients on their journey to living their best life. You can follow my thoughts and updates via my monthly newsletter.

How can I help?

I specialise in helping and supporting people who are struggling with their life, health or career. As a professional psychotherapist reverse therapist and life coach based in Scotland, I work with clients from all over the world via phone and video calls to restore their motivation, confidence, energy, performance, and health.

In my practice, I combine several therapy methods:

Solution-Focused Psychotherapy

Solution focused therapy is a brief, goal-oriented form of therapy that focuses on identifying and amplifying the client's strengths and resources to help them find solutions to their problems. It is good for addressing specific issues, setting achievable goals, and promoting positive change in a relatively short period of time.

Reverse Therapy

Reverse Therapy is a holistic approach to treating chronic conditions that focuses on identifying the underlying emotional and physiological factors contributing to the illness. It is good for individuals experiencing conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and stress-related illnesses, as it helps them address the root causes of their symptoms and make significant lifestyle changes to improve their health and well-being.

Positive Psychology Coaching

Positive psychology coaching is a strengths-based approach that focuses on promoting well-being, resilience, and personal growth. It is good for individuals looking to cultivate a positive mindset, enhance their overall life satisfaction, and achieve their goals by focusing on and developing their strengths and values. Positive psychology coaching emphasises building on what is going well in a person's life, rather than solely addressing problems or pathology.


In the first instance, please drop me an email at info@kathleenkettles.com or call me on +44 788 623 4559. Let me know what's been going on for you and what you would like me to help you with. I usually respond to all emails within 48 hours, and I treat all communication as 100% confidential.


All sessions last for an hour and cost £115 payable on the day of the session by PAYPAL or BACS and are delivered via Zoom, SKYPE or by calling my landline number. Because I give my clients homework in the form of techniques and strategies to apply, sessions are usually spaced out every two weeks. This is flexible and can be sooner or extended according to individual clients preferences.

Please have a pen and paper handy as there will be things I teach you in the session that you‘ll want to write down.

Between your scheduled sessions, you can email me with any questions, or if you just want to send an email to give me a progress report. I love hearing about client's breakthroughs!
