About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Kat and I am a trauma focused therapist, meaning I support clients who have experienced any kind of trauma or abuse, such as physical, sexual, psychological, neglect etc. I work from a gendered perspective with women and girls only from the age of 14 and above. I work in an integrative way with the clients using a phased approach to trauma recovery.
Discussing trauma and the feelings it has left you with will be difficult. I will offer you the space to talk and be truly heard about matters that are causing you distress. I work collaboratively with clients, meaning we explore your thoughts and feelings together from a non-judgemental perspective at a pace that feels comfortable for you. I believe you are the expert on you and I am there to support you reach the change, personal insight, self-awareness and growth you are looking for.
Before I became a therapist, I worked in mental health hospitals and gained extensive experience working with adolescents and adults diagnosed with an eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, rumination disorder, orthorexia etc.) I am passionate about this area of work and continue to work with female clients who are experiencing eating disorders. Clients seeking therapeutic support for this should, however, be under the care of their GP or other medical professional alongside their therapy, due to the physical risks connected with having an eating disorder.
If you are seeking therapy for something other than a specific trauma, I would be glad to meet with you so you can determine if my way of working will be suitable for your needs.
As an integrative relational therapist, I will ensure our sessions will be personalised to meet your specific needs and I will draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to support you such as CBT, existentialism and other humanistic approaches. I believe empowerment is the key to moving on after trauma and therefore, it is empowerment that I put at the forefront of my work with clients.
