BACK TO PRACTITIONERS

Katie is an integrative-relational practitioner, which means she draws from a number of established therapeutic schools (for example psychodynamic, person-centred, CBT) to tailor effective therapy to you as an individual. Sometimes jargon can get in the way and the most important element of Katie’s work is making sure there is a good therapeutic ‘fit’ between you and her, with the potential to build a strong, trusting relationship as a basis for exploring what’s important to you.

Everybody’s aims in therapy are unique but broadly, through talking in confidence we can explore and reflect on what’s troubling you or holding you back. Together we will consider what you would like to achieve through therapy and look at how you can work towards leading a more satisfying and fulfilled life.

Katie’s specialist interest is in helping clients to combat workplace stress, bullying and harassment. Her former career as a corporate employment lawyer has given her broad experience in advising clients on how to resolve work-related conflict from a legal viewpoint and she has mediated and litigated workplace mental health discrimination cases.

Katie also works as an Associate Counsellor at a London University where she helps students tackle mental health issues common to teenagers and young adults, in particular coping with eating disorders, self-harm, social isolation, confidence issues and exam stress.

Katie spent 2 years working in a busy NHS GP surgery, seeing a broad range of GP-referred clients for talking therapy.

Katie charges £60 for a 50 minute session.
