Counselling Support in NorthamptonSHIRE

Welcome to Moving Forward Counselling

Restoring physical and emotional balance

Moving Forward Counselling

At Moving Forward Counselling, I offer a compassionate and confidential environment where you can freely express yourself. I provide a safe, confidential space where you can share your difficulties and emotions openly. As a qualified and BACP registered counsellor with experience in bereavement, relationships, menopause, and more, I offer a holistic and integrative approach to therapy. I believe in the power of the mind-body connection and the impact it has on every aspect of our lives. By exploring the body-mind connection, we can delve deeper into your experiences and uncover insights that may have been previously overlooked to increase your awareness and understanding and to support you to make positive change.

I work with individual adults and young people (16+) on a short, medium or long term basis, tailoring the therapy to suit your unique needs and preferences. Whether you prefer face to face, online, telephone, or walk and talk therapy, I can provide a solution that works best for you. Together, we will work at your pace to explore your experiences and help find resolutions to the challenges you face.

How Counselling Can Help You

At Moving Forward Counselling, I am dedicated to providing you with a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space where you can freely express yourself. My approach is not about "fixing" you; instead, I am here to walk alongside you on your journey of self-discovery and healing. You are the expert of your own life, and I believe that you already hold the answers within.

Through our sessions, I offer a fresh perspective that can lead to greater self-awareness and understanding. Together, we will explore your emotions and experiences, equipping you with valuable tools and strategies to manage them effectively. Let's work together to unlock your potential and find the strength within you to overcome life's challenges.


In counselling sessions, I provide a safe and confidential environment where you can openly discuss your challenges and emotions. Using a person-centred and integrative approach, I will listen attentively, value your uniqueness, and respect your feelings. Together, we will explore your individual experiences, allowing you to find your own resolutions and foster positive change in your life.

Walk and Talk Therapy

Embrace the therapeutic benefits of nature with walk and talk therapy sessions. Using the serenity of outdoor settings, you can freely express yourself while enjoying the ever-changing therapeutic environment. This unique approach encourages a sense of connection with nature, allowing for deeper self-reflection and a renewed perspective on your life's journey.

Menopause Wellness Support

If you are experiencing menopausal symptoms, I am here to offer dedicated support and understanding. As a trained menopause wellness practitioner, I can provide a safe space to discuss the challenges you face during this phase of life. Together, we will explore strategies to manage symptoms effectively and embrace this transitional period with greater ease and empowerment.

About Me

Welcome to Moving Forward Counselling! My name is Kate, and I am a dedicated and compassionate counsellor with a wealth of experience in supporting families and individuals. For over 23 years, I have worked with a Local Authority in children's services, where I have had the privilege of supporting families of young people. This has given me a profound understanding of the complexities within relationships and the importance of safeguarding and advocating for children.

Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to manage a team in a large organisation, offering support to staff members and gaining invaluable insights into the pressures of the business world. As my career evolved, I found myself working further away from the families I once closely assisted, and that's when I realised my yearning to work one-to-one with individuals, which is what led me to counselling.

I have dedicated a lifetime to learning and personal growth, with my original degree in biology, which later became an integral part of my counselling practice. This unique blend of experiences and knowledge allows me to take a holistic approach in supporting you on your journey of self-discovery and healing.

Kate Behan, Counsellor

With specialisms in

Bereavement and loss from my background with CRUSE Bereavement Care. Working with adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, and sexual identity with Service 6. Working with relationship issues within Relate. I can offer targeted support for these specific challenges.


Having worked with countless individuals and families, I believe in the power of fostering meaningful connections and providing a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore your emotions and experiences. My aim is to empower you to find your own answers within and equip you with valuable tools to manage life's challenges better.
