Catherine is a Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Practitioner. Over the years as a counsellor she became very interested in the concept of how our thoughts, feelings and behaviour influence and interact with each other. Catherine has found, as a therapist, there are times when it is beneficial to use a combination of approaches that best suit a client and the difficulties they are experiencing. Thus, she integrates CBT with Mindfulness Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Person Centred Therapy. She also runs Mindfulness meditation workshops.
Catherine also works as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and specialises in a range of issues such as: anxiety, depression, confidence issues, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) stress, trauma, addictions, phobias (fear of flying, needles etc) weight Loss, and public speaking. All client concerns can be treated with a combination of therapies or with one therapy depending on the issue and client.
Catherine teaches Counselling and Hypnotherapy at Colleges. She also works in Educational settings with children, families and school staff. She works with young people on an individual bases, using CBT/Hypnotherapy.
Catherine’s aim in therapy is to enable the client to become their own therapist, in this vein she works in a collaborative manner with the clients. It is her belief that, a client who is involved in the therapy process is able to transfer the skills learnt in therapy to issues that come up after therapy has ended.
As a therapist Catherine is extremely passionate about her work and is always excited to able to create and provide a safe place for you to learn more about yourself and to begin the process of change and acceptance of whom you are.
