Hello, I'm Catherine and welcome to my page. Therapy is a space just for you - to untangle hard feelings, explore a difficult situation, or work through past experiences. Every person is different, every experience is different, and they are all valid. I welcome you to bring to therapy whatever it is you need to bring, and we will work together to find a way to move forward. I offer a free initial session to see if I am a good fit for you. My fees are £50 per session/£35 low income rate, and I am available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please get in touch if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing from you.
I work with you to explore difficult, confusing, or painful feelings, and support you through tough situations which are coming up in your life. You can use your therapy as a safe space to slow down and explore different aspects of you and your life, like issues with relationships, feelings of anxiety or depression, why you are feeling unfulfilled, why it feels hard to get your needs met, or why you find it hard to express certain parts of yourself. We look at ways to move forward, and help you to live a happier and more fulfilled life. It’s also important to my therapy practice to acknowledge that your current and past experience is shaped by wider social and cultural experiences, whether that is the impact of covid or issues of identity or oppression. My practice is allied with and welcoming of all genders, the LGBTQ+ community, non-monogamous relationships and sex workers
Having worked in the mental health sector for over 10 years I have worked with a variety of different people and experiences. I have experience working with a broad variety of issues including anxiety, depression, sex and relationship issues, trauma and sexual abuse, LGBTQ+ issues, substance misuse, eating disorders and body dysmorphia, and gender dysphoria. I have been working with a Private Practice for the last two years, and have worked with a range of clients experiencing a range of different types of issues. I currently work for a charity supporting young people affected by sexual exploitation, and I have previous work experience supporting college and university students with their mental health and wellbeing. I have volunteered with Survivor's Network, a local charity for those who have experienced sexual violence, and have extensive experience supporting people with ASD and related difficulties.
