Consults in Cambridgeshire
Kathryn is a psychodynamic psychotherapist accredited with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BCP) and is a member of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP).
After graduating in English and Art History from the University of Leeds Kathryn trained and worked as a secondary school teacher. She gained a degree in Psychology with The Open University and an MSc in Developmental Psychoanalytic Psychology from The Anna Freud Centre.
During this time Kathryn combined teaching students with medical conditions out of school (including in a Tier 4 CAMHS inpatient unit) with providing psychological services in school.
She set up counselling services in several Cambridge schools.
In 2014, she completed a clinical Masters (MA) in Psychological Therapies for Children, Adolescents and Families at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Clinic in London, the country's leading NHS mental health training hospital.
Kathryn currently works as a senior clinician and supervisor in an NHS Mental Health Support Team.
Kathryn believes that the relationship between the client and the therapist lies at the heart of effective therapy, whether that be long term psychotherapy or a shorter term intervention using, for example, Mentalization, Mindfulness and CBT techniques.
She is particularly interested in intergenerational patterns of parenting and their impact on attachment.
Kathryn currently offers supervision to school therapists in Cambridge, works in private practice as well as her NHS role.
