Hi my name is Kathryn. Trained to BA level, I am an Integrative psychotherapist, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I draw mostly from Psychodynamic theory.
Put simply, psychodynamic theory focuses on our past and present relationships, how we interact with others, how we see ourselves, others, and the world. By reflecting on our thinking, feeling and behaviours we can address aspects from our past which might influence current difficulties, or perhaps identify habits that are blocking us from achieving our potential.
Open up the possibility of living differently.
As each one of us is unique, I tailor my approach to your individual needs and will be committed to supporting and encouraging you as we explore your feelings, experiences, and relationships. By offering a collaborative and unique approach we can work together to achieve your aims and goals.
It is often easier to talk to someone outside your family or friendship circle and you will have a safe space to explore what is happening presently in your life or perhaps look at unresolved or painful experiences from your formative years and childhood.
I have noticed that in the ‘hurry’ of modern life, painful experiences can be side-lined, or we may be encouraged by well meaning others to move forward too quickly.
Sometimes we need a safe, reflective, and inclusive space to tell our stories, to make meaning of them so that we move forward in a way that honours all our lived experiences.
Whilst not exhaustive, my background includes providing therapeutic support for fertility issues, infant loss, ending a pregnancy, still birth, miscarriage, rainbow pregnancies. I have experience working as a group facilitator for a homeless charity, young adults experiencing disordered eating and those experiencing anxiety, bereavement and loss. I offer an LGBTQ affirmative space.

Available during the day or evening.
Using the Zoom platform I will conduct your online appointments maintaining the same standard of privacy and confidentiality as I would in personal face to face therapy.
For successful counselling you will need a quiet room in which to talk to me.
Face to Face
I offer face to face sessions in Cambridge on Saturday and Sunday and during the week in St Albans.
Before becoming a counsellor, I worked as a hairdresser, for the RSPCA and for the NHS. I have been fortunate to work with many different people from a variety of cultures, religions and social backgrounds. This experience has helped to inform my practice.
