About Kathryn

A difficult event from your past may be overwhelming you, causing you to question yourself constantly. Do you struggle to fully connect with the important people in your life? Would developing healthier boundaries and respect for yourself ease the stress of your daily experience? 
I will work with you to improve your relationships with others, but most importantly your relationship with yourself. By embracing a spirit of honesty and collaboration, we can work together in a calm environment where you have the time and space to examine your wants and needs, without judgement.
I will work with you to identify how any past events may be impacting you now. I will listen to your experiences and together we will try to make sense of the way in which they continue to feature in your life. I am passionate about working with clients to develop a stronger sense of self, and to value their own wants and needs above all else. 
I endeavour to provide a warm and relaxed environment for my clients, so why not get in touch for a chat? I would love to hear from you.

Get to Know Kathryn

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

Every therapist will say that they wanted to help people, and I am no different in this. I have always had a strong sense of wanting to make a difference in the world, and being a therapist has helped me achieve my goal. If I can work to alleviate the emotional pain of just one person, I will feel it is a career well spent.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

The integrative therapy I practice is adaptable, it flexes and changes to meet the individual needs of the client. There is no "you should" or "you must". As you move along your therapy journey, the therapy moves with you, seamlessly.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

I try to create an environment where clients feel safe and welcomed. Coming to therapy is hard, so smoothing the rough edges where I can is the least I can do for my clients. I am led by the client's needs in all things. We might choose a specific piece of work to do, or the client might choose to use their sessions as a way to make sense of their week. The client is in charge of their therapy, it is their process, I am there to support and guide. That isn't to say that sessions won't be challenging. Sometimes the biggest change comes through challenging persistent patterns of thought and behaviour. This will be done in the most sensitive way possible, with attention paid to the client's safety at every turn.
