PG Dip, BSc Hons, MBACP
Catherine is an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor and it is her belief that a safe, confidential and non-judgmental setting, plus a uniquely supportive, yet challenging relationship between therapist and client, is essential in order for the therapeutic process to be effective. Her approach incorporates insight, empathy and compassion, offering you the space and time to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Catherine provides each client with the approach best suited to their individual needs, merging together various psychotherapeutic approaches. Her theoretical stance is primarily client-centred and humanistic, integrating techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, gestalt, solution-focused therapy, and rational emotive behavioural therapy (REBT). She incorporates mindfulness throughout her work.
With a background in healthcare publishing, Catherine also spent a number of years working for mental health charity SANE and as a psychotherapist at a mental health day centre, a community centre and in private practice. She currently works with individuals, offering open-ended and time-limited therapy sessions.
