Welcome

Are you struggling with low mood, loss of confidence, stress or anxiety? Have there been difficulties related to trauma or a major life change that has left you feeling distressed or feeling like you don’t know which way to turn?


I understand how approaching therapy can feel difficult and daunting. I am passionate about providing a warm, compassionate, safe space to talk and to explore your issues. I believe it’s important for you to feel valued, respected and supported through therapy. I aim to work collaboratively with you in a sensitive,  yet pragmatic way to work together on taking steps towards meaningful change.

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is founded on the understanding that our thoughts, feelings and behaviour are all connected. When you feel low or anxious you may notice yourself falling into a pattern of thinking and responding, which can ultimately leave you feeling worse. CBT works with you to gain awareness of these unhelpful patterns and find alternative ways of coping. 


CBT is a collaborative therapy where I work together with you towards mutually agreed goals. CBT aims to give you the skills and practical tools learnt in therapy to become your own therapist and manage difficulties in a healthier way. CBT aims to empower you by emphasising practice of home tasks outside of the therapy session to get the most out of the therapy process. These will be agreed between us and planned carefully together in each session.


CBT has a strong evidence base and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of depression and many anxiety disorders.


CBT can be completed on its own or in conjunction with medication prescribed by a GP or doctor. This can depend on the difficulty CBT is helping with and personal choice.

About Me

I’m Katherine and I’m a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.

 

I have worked in social care in numerous roles with adults, young people and families over the last 12 years, which have all provided me with valuable experiences and significantly informed my practice today. I initially qualified with a BA (Hons) Social Work and I found my passion has always been working with and supporting those with mental health difficulties. This sparked my interest and passion for psychological therapies and I spent time working in acute and community mental health settings. This led me to completing a Post Graduate Diploma in CBT. I have also undertaken additional training in Compassion Focused Therapy and working alongside Long Term Conditions such as Chronic Pain, IBS and Diabetes. 

I am enthusiastic about supporting people to make meaningful changes in their lives. I have a warm, compassionate, client focused approach to therapy. 

​​

I am a fully accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP), which means I have to maintain high standards of professionalism and ensure my skills and knowledge are up to date. I am bound by the Codes of Ethics and Practice of the BABCP, so you can have confidence in the treatments and support that I offer.

​​

I am currently employed both in the NHS and privately. I provide evidence based treatments in line with NICE guidelines and tailor therapy to you, viewing each person as a unique individual, to ensure you get the most out of your therapy. 

I am insured and have an enhanced DBS which is available on request.

Can CBT help me?

Perhaps you're feeling down, stressed or anxious - maybe you're being self critical, have lost confidence or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever it might be I am here to offer support.

 

Therapy is a process of self discovery to recognise how you can take steps to learn the skills and tools needed in order to improve your confidence in overcoming your difficulties.

Every person's individual experience is different and I will work with you to create a shared understanding of your needs.

Some of the areas I can help with are:

 

  • Depression 

  • Pre / Post Natal Depression

  • Low Self Esteem / Confidence issues

  • Excessive Worry

  • Stress / Burnout

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder

  • Specific Phobias

  • Health Anxiety

  • Social Anxiety

  • Panic Disorder

  • Agoraphobia

  • Trichotillomania (hair pulling)

  • Excoriation disorder (skin picking)

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Working alongside Long Term health conditions e.g. Chronic Pain, IBS, Diabetes.

 

Whilst a diagnosis or an understanding of your difficulty can be helpful, it is not necessary to begin therapy.

Video Therapy

CBT is offered via video call or telephone.

 

There are a number of benefits of online therapy:

  • Convenience - therapy from the comfort of your own home.

  • Flexible - fit more easily around your day.

  • Time - less time travelling to and from appointments.

  • Cost effective - no travel or parking costs.

  • Privacy - more discreet than attending face to face appointments.

Services I Offer

 

Free 15 minute consultation 

I understand the importance of finding the right therapist for you, who you feel comfortable with. Therefore, before making any commitment to treatment I offer a free 15 minute consultation via telephone or video to briefly explore the main problem you are seeking support with and your main goals for therapy.

 

This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions and to ensure we are happy to proceed. If I believe an alternative approach or service may be more suitable for you then I will make recommendations of alternative support.


If you have any questions or would like to book a consultation, then please get in touch so we can agree a convenient time.

Assessment and Treatment

I provide one to one therapy to adults (18+) via telephone or video call.

 

The initial assessment will allow us to explore the main difficulties you are experiencing, alongside your hopes and expectations of treatment. Following this appointment, provided we both are happy to proceed, then subsequent treatment sessions can be booked on a mutually agreed time and day. These are usually weekly or bi-weekly appointments unless otherwise agreed.

 

Sessions are reviewed and feedback is gained regularly to ensure we are continuing to work in a way which is beneficial to you. 

 

CBT is a short term therapy and is usually between 6-20 sessions depending on your individual difficulty and experience. Everyone can progress differently and we will plan our sessions together.
