About me and my therapy practice
I'm Katherine and I am an experienced psychotherapist working in north London. I have a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)-accredited master’s degree, and offer both long- and short-term one-to-one therapy.
I am a registered member of the BACP and follow their ethical guidelines in my practice, and I am committed to my own continued professional development.
Alongside my private practice, I also work as a therapist in the NHS and as an assessor for a north London counselling charity.
I provide a safe and confidential place for you to feel accepted, understood and able to freely explore the causes of your feelings and behaviours.
My approach is based on psychoanalytic and psychodynamic principles. I will be mindful of how your past experiences may influence your current patterns of thinking, feeling and relating to others.
Rather than offering my advice, we work together to bring a deeper understanding of who you are. I can support you in examining the unconscious and sometimes unhelpful choices that might be standing in your way and impeding constructive change and growth.
People come to psychotherapy for many different and varied reasons and I aim to bring a non-judgemental, respectful approach to each unique individual that I work with. It can be a challenging process but one that can also be hugely rewarding and have a positive impact on many areas of life.
Some examples of what can psychotherapy help with:
Feeling stressed or overwhelmed
Lacking focus in life
Loss, for example a bereavement or relationship break-up
Self-confidence and self-esteem
Issues with identity, such as ethnicity, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ability, age and socioeconomic status
Problems with eating, drinking or your feelings about your body
Difficulties with sex or sexuality
Handling illness and pain
Providing a space to think and reflect
I work one-to-one with adults, offering weekly therapy on an open-ended, long-term or short-term basis.
I offer private face-to-face appointments in my comfortable therapy room in Finsbury Park. Alternatively, online sessions are available if preferred.
