Kaye Bewley

After many years spent in the media and marketing environments, I returned to study and earned my Masters in Psychotherapy at Nottingham Trent University in 2013 as a mature student.  


You'll see on this page, my qualifications to ensure my competence to practice.  I have presented workshops and have written several psycho-therapeutic books, as well as helped to promote other therapists through my newsletter, publications and websites.  


To ensure I keep up-to-date with my professional development and training, I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and continually attend new educational courses.

Personal Experience

In essence, I gained experience in the media, marketing and military environments for a good few decades before realising I had a knack for connecting with people. 


After securing my educational goals, I set-up my own therapeutic practice and began to assist people professionally.  I now assist those experiencing traumatic stress (PTSD), those who suffer with depression and anxiety issues and also coach writers in building their confidence enough to get published, by helping them plan the way ahead.

Professional Counselling

Having a talented and enthusiastic counsellor is vital to the success of The Counsel With A Cuppa experience.  This is the reason we emphasise fun with treats and sweets at a neutral venue local to you, as it consistently delivers a wonderfully unique experience, one that you'll remember for a long time.  Once you enjoy the type of therapy sessions that we present, you usually figure out what it is that you want from life and, finally, find yourself getting on with it.

Nottingham Trent University

A Masters (Hons) degree in Psychotherapy was awarded to Kaye Bewley.  For her final project, 'Soldiers & Civvies: a comparative analysis of the emotional meaning in their work cultures', she received a Distinction.  This project was aligned with the concepts of the Human Givens Therapy which is a global research organisation concerned with progressing the most effective forms of counselling and psychotherapy.  Human Givens works holistically, with scientifically accepted methods, to find the missing emotional needs of clients and works at unearthing their skills and abilities to get the unmet needs met.  It is closely tied to research in consciousness and the spiritual aspects of humanity as well as using techniques aligned with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy


Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre

The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques are backed by thousands of research papers proving its evidence-based effectiveness.  The therapy is a structured form of psychotherapy that assists in changing unhelpful thinking and behaviour during times of distress. It is fully compatible medication if you use this. National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) gives an overview which supports its effectiveness, while the Royal College of Psychiatrists gives a summary.  With a remit to provide specialist teaching and training tailored for Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre OCTC comes under the remit of Oxford Health NHS Trust while working alongside Oxford University.


British Psychological Society

Kaye is an Affiliate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) which is the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK. The BPS are responsible for the development, promotion and application of psychology for the public good.  The BPS enhances the efficiency and usefulness of psychologists by setting high standards of professional education and knowledge.
