About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Kathryn, an Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Accredited CBT Therapist and EMDR Therapist. I am based in the Gosforth / Kenton area of Newcastle upon Tyne and I use an integrated therapy approach in order to meet your needs most appropriately. I work with people aged 18+.

If you are suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems or other emotional difficulties then I can help. As I am trained in a variety of therapies, I can help you to understand your unique situation and overcome whatever difficulties you are having.

I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instil self-understanding and encourage people to adopt new solutions and attitudes towards life situations. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply through the psychotherapy experience, and get you back on track.

My qualifications:

• BACP Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (core model is Transactional Analysis (TA) (2009, Northern Guild for Psychotherapy)

• BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) (2011, Newcastle University)

• Eye Movement Densensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) (2017, EMDR Academy)

• Certificate in Couples Counselling (2019, The Cherished Family Project)

I also offer Couples Counselling. Within couples counselling, I am not here to blame either party but to explore the reasons why the problems have come about and how to help you overcome these as a couple or decide it’s time to part ways. It is through the exploration within the safe space that counselling provides, that you will decide what the future holds for you both.

* (Unfortunately, I cannot help couples where there is domestic violence or physical aggression.)

Practice description

I like to create an informal therapy environment to help you feel as comfortable as possible as I am aware how daunting therapy can be. It is important to me that we work collaboratively as a team in order to meet your goals. The therapeutic relationship is vital for this, so I am always open to any feedback which will make treatment as effective as possible for you.

I work both long and short term with clients depending on your needs and goals.

My first session

In our first session, we will discuss what brought you to therapy and how I can help.  I believe it is important for us to consider what you want to change during therapy and that will keep us focused to meet your goals.  I like to create an informal environment so that you can feel as comfortable as possible and we will take the session at whatever pace you feel comfortable with.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Kathryn, an Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Accredited CBT Therapist and EMDR Therapist. 

I am also a qualified Supervisor (Clinical Supervision for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Practice, University of Teesside, 2013, Masters Level 7).

I am based in the Gosforth / Kenton area of Newcastle upon Tyne and I work in integratively.

My therapy qualifications:

• BACP Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (core model is Transactional Analysis (TA) (2009, Northern Guild for Psychotherapy)

• BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) (2011, Newcastle University)

• Eye Movement Densensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) (2017, EMDR Academy)

• Certificate in Couples Counselling (2019, The Cherished Family Project)

I have worked both within the NHS and within private practice since 2007. I have always enjoyed supervision and have had very good feedback from Supervisees. I am more didactic, rather than socratic, in supervision style. However, I like to work as a team to help my supervisees leave with answers to their questions and a plan for their clients.

I also strongly believe in the restorative nature of supervision and open and honest feedback to ensure supervision is as effective as possible for you.

Supervision is integral to our roles; for our development and to ensure ethical and competent practice, which is at the heart of what I like to offer.

Practice description

I like to create an informal environment where we can be open and honest and feel comfortable. The supervisory relationship is vitally important in order for supervisees to feel comfortable opening up; there are never any daft questions or queries and I am open to feedback to ensure the supervision process is beneficial to you and your clients.
