About Me

I am Catherine Asta.

Psychotherapist and impassioned champion of women and their stories, with an unequivocal specialism in ‘Bringing Sparkle Back’.

I’ve transformed hundreds of women and have spent thousands and thousand of hours inside the minds of women.

Why work with me?

I'm a person centered therapist and I use an integrative and compassion focused approach - a combination of Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Psychodynamic and Narrative approaches - and all with a huge dollop of compassion.

Add to that my skills as a BIG thinker (I'm an ex-NHS Strategist) which when combined is really powerful stuff.

I am licensed to practice with the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP) and was awarded a Fellow in 2019 for outstanding commitment to my profession.

I have a degree in Psychology, a Diploma in Effective Psychotherapy and CBT, a PGCert in Leadership and will graduate from Leeds University in 2021 with an MSc in Psychology.

I'm also a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

You might have noticed that I also have a thing for colour and dressing happy, as well as rocking a vibrant red lip, and my statement earring game is strong.

This is me.

My Evidence Bank

“I have known Catherine for several years.  Even from the very start of her training she has inspired me with her style, sense of purpose and humility.  I have watched almost mesmerised, but not surprised by her rise to the very top of the Psychotherapy profession. Almost unheard of was her award of a Fellowship of the National Council of Psychotherapists in no more than four years of private practice.”

“We invited Catherine to join our workshop as an expert speaker and she spoke from her personal and professional experience with great authority, compassion and clarity. She understood immediately what we wanted to get out of the session and worked closely with us to deliver an inspiring and enlightening interview. The client team thoroughly enjoyed hearing about her experiences, and many new understandings and ideas arose from this piece of work.”
