Award Winning Psychotherapist and Impassioned Champion of Women and their Stories, with an Unequivocal Specialism in Bringing Sparkle Back.
My Approach

I'm a person centered therapist and I use an integrative approach - a combination of CBT, Psychoanalysis, Narrative Psychology and Mindfulness  - add to that my skills as a BIG thinker (I'm an ex-NHS Strategist) which when combined, is REALLY powerful stuff. 


I'm licensed to practice with the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP), and was awarded a Fellow from my professional body in 2019 for outstanding commitment to the profession.


I have a degree in Psychology, a Diploma in Effective Psychotherapy and CBT, a PGcert in Leadership and I'm currently on a Chartered Psychology PHD journey and will graduate with an MSc Psychology from Leeds University in 2021 and my BPS graduate status.

I'm fascinated by people.

"Catherine has made me see my self in a completely different way! A year ago I sat in an armchair crying, doubting myself, questioning my own self-worth and constantly allowing others to treat me badly, putting those people before my own happiness. I was trapped in a negative cycle which I had been caught up in since suffering a huge loss in my childhood. In 12 months Catherine has made me realise I am an incredible woman who deserves good in my life!
