About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome. My name is Kathryn, trained to BA level, I am an integrative psychotherapist registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Central to my work is a personal and deep understanding of the need to be seen, heard and respected. As this experience can be denied to many, I offer a safe, confidential space where pain can be witnessed and repaired in the context of a warm, non-judgemental, and responsive relationship.
I have noticed that in the ‘hurry’ of modern life, painful experiences can be side-lined, or we may be encouraged by well-meaning others to move forward too quickly. Sometimes we need a safe, reflective, and inclusive space to tell our stories, to make meaning of them so that we can move forward in a way that honours all our lived experiences.
Practice descriptionAs each one of us is unique, I tailor my approach to your individual needs and will be committed to supporting and encouraging you as we work through your feelings, experiences, and relationships.
I draw mostly from psychodynamic theory. Put simply, psychodynamic theory focuses on our past and present relationships, how we interact with others, how we see ourselves, others, and the world. By reflecting on our thinking, feeling and behaviours we can address aspects from our past which might influence current difficulties, or perhaps identify habits that are blocking us from achieving our potential.
It can sometimes be easier to talk to someone outside of your family or friendship circle and you will have a safe space to explore what is happening presently in your life or perhaps look at unresolved or painful experiences from your formative years and childhood.
I offer a collaborative and unique approach which can open up the possibility of living differently and achieving your aims and goals.
