Hi. I am Kate Haughey. Welcome to my website.

About me

I am a child and family focused social worker and therapeutic counsellor with proven results in working with families and parents who have experienced intergenerational and complex trauma.

I am a qualified Circle of Security (COS) Facilitator for both the more intensive 20-week COS course and the Circle of Security (COS-P) 8-week course and have extensive experience facilitating both in groups and individually. 

I have been practicing for over 15 years and I have worked with both not-for-profit organizations and government agencies dedicated to supporting families.

Much of that work has involved using the Circle of Security (COS) approach. You can read more about the COS approach by clicking here.

Struggling? Don't feel alone

Experiencing parenting problems, children struggling or it just seems all too much?

Becoming a parent is generally an exciting time of our lives, however we all soon find out that babies aren’t born with any instruction manual and certainly not a manual that covers parenting our children over many years!

The numerous books on parenting and all the advice we gather from family and friends can help, but wouldn’t it be fantastic if our children did come with their own individual manuals? They don't as you know but I can help you work it out.

Why me?

I excel in building strong therapeutic relationships with clients, with documented success in bringing about positive change for my clients.

I am also skilled in building collaborative practice with other organizations and equal strengths in team work and case management which is backed by solid credentials.
