About me and my therapy practice

Cathy has worked as a psychotherapist for almost 30 years in the arena of of domestic & sexual violence and abuse, coercive control, child to parent violence & abuse and child sexual abuse. Cathy has worked with thousands of victims across a variety of services and therapeutic provisions as well as in private practice. 

Cathy has been delivering training across the UK and internationally for the last 20 years on a variety of issues related to domestic & sexual violence and abuse, coercive control, child to parent violence & abuse and child sexual abuse.

Practice description

The aim of each workshop and training is to support practitioners from a wide range of agencies to respond more appropriately and effectively so we can support all those affected by domestic abuse related issues. All workshops and trainings are delivered in an accessible way ensuring a full opportunity for learning, discussion, strategies and tools to support best practice, integrating group discussion, interactive exercises, use of dvds and powerpoint.

Cathy delivers both in-house and multi-agency workshops and trainings to both statutory and voluntary agencies and is able to offer bespoke training to meet your agency needs. Delivering primarily in-house or multi-agency workshops and training online, but can work also work face to face.

Cathy has developed two part educational/part therapeutic programmes as follows:

Escape the Trap (Teenage Relationship Abuse Programme) a simple, straightforward and above all accessible programme that can be used in any setting with young people, whether working with groups or one to one, designed to support young people to learn about the dynamics of grooming, coercion and power & control at a much earlier stage in their experience of intimate relationships.

The VOICE Programme, a twelve-week domestic abuse programme for adults addressing domestic violence, coercive control, the programme supports victims to identify the broad spectrum of abusive behaviours, the process of dismantling that a victim goes through and the significant impact of such traumatic experiences.

The programme aims to address the various behaviours of a controlling partner, offer relatable psychoeducation on trauma and normal stress responses, enable victims to learn more about the impact of traumatic experiences and build their capacity for self-regulation and their commitment to self-care.

Who's in Charge? a nine week part education/part therapeutic programme for parents experiencing child to parent violence & abuse, run across the UK and internationally.
