About me and my therapy practice

My name is Catriona and I’m looking forward to getting to know you.

I am passionate about empowering others to recognise their own uniqueness by providing an open environment for whatever they need to explore.

After my own experience of healing through therapy I strive to provide a similarly positive and healing experience for others.

I believe we evolve within relationships, but unfortunately, sometimes a relationship or life experience can have a negative impact. Being the adaptive species that we are, we create ways to tolerate these difficult times. These adaptations do a wonderful job in helping us survive, but unfortunately as time passes, we can grow out of these suits of armour and eventually instead of helping, they can restrictive.

However, it’s not all bad. 

If relationships and experiences can cause difficulties, then they can also do the opposite and be a source of healing. This is where I can help you.

Sometimes talking to loved ones can be hard. Sometimes they just don't get it. We worry that we're over reacting, being too sensitive, that we're thinking too much, or worse yet that they will use what we tell them against us.

A therapeutic relationship isn't like any other.

We will explore what makes you, you. The positive, the negative and those that you’re not too sure about. We’ll look at the different parts of your armour and see what works well and which parts need upgrading or even getting rid of.

I provide peace and gentle curiosity. I hope to help you shine a light within your shadow so that you get to know and appreciate all aspects of yourself, even the parts of you that are currently making you feel uncomfortable. All of you is welcome, even those feelings and thoughts you may feel uneasy about.

It’s time to find your voice, your calm, and your resilience.

Practice description

Currently I am only available via Zoom or telephone.

I am planning to return to office-based work by January 2022 which will be in the All-Saints Centre in Huthwaite.

Sessions are £50 per session or £40 for students or those on benefits

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My first session

Our initial session is more a getting to know each other opportunity than a therapeutic session.

We can ask each other questions to find out if I am the most suitable person to work with you. I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.

This is a great time to explore, just what you want from counselling and if I can offer it.

I will go over the contract and can explain the therapeutic process in a bit more detail so you have a firm grounding on what working with me will involve. 

There’s no need to sign the contract there and then. I am happy for you to leave after this inital meeting and have think about if you want to work with me or not.

If we feel that working together would be beneficial, then we can move forward together into therapy.
