Kathryn Wood MA, MSc, PGCE, BA
Consults in Cambridgeshire
Kathryn is a psychodynamic psychotherapist accreditated 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. During this time she completed a degree in Psychology with The Open University and an MSc in Developmental Psychoanalytic Psychology from The Anna Freud Centre. In 2014 she gained a clinical Masters (MA) in psychodynamic psychotherapy for Children, Adolescents and Families at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Clinic in London, the country's leading NHS mental health training hospital, accredited by the University of East London (UEL). Kathryn currently works as a supervisor in an NHS Mental Health Support Team.
For the last ten years Kathryn has combined teaching students not in school for medical reasons, most recently in a Tier 4 CAMHS inpatient unit, with long and short term psychotherapy for children, young people and families in primary, secondary schools and social services settings in Cambridgeshire.
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 works as a school therapist in Cambridge, working with children and carers/parents. She also works in private practice.
