How I work
  • Our work is a collaborative effort; with you drawing on the skills, qualities and experience I offer.  Early on, we aim to establish a good working relationship where you can feel safe, supported and "met".  A key to success is working at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

  • Sometimes you might need only to be deeply heard and to be supported and affirmed in your experience.  Other times you might want suggestions and exercises for exploring and revolving what is bothering you, or personal feedback.  We can also consider and review periodically any goals you have for yourself.

  • I offer online, phone and face-to-face sessions sat 2m apart in a garden studio room. If you prefer online, you can relax in your own home, and it is surprising how contactful it can be. If we are Skyping or face-timing then you need to have privacy, a good internet connection and access to a smart-phone or computer with webcam and sound. Phoning just requires privacy.

    "Katrina and I spoke over Skype which was ideal for me as I am disabled, but it felt like we were in the same space" Steph

  • My way of working is respectful and client centered.  I don't have a set path we must follow, but endeavour to follow your energy and to stimulate your growth towards healthy relating and wholeness.

"My sessions with Katrina took me on a personal journey I hadn’t envisaged and I was able to talk openly for the first time about many of my feelings; joy, loss, love, pain, fear, pride, anxiety, bewilderment, forgiveness.   

 

"Talking with Katrina helped me get to know the ‘real me’ and I feel very lucky to have found someone I felt so comfortable with."  Anna

  • Couples Counselling can tend to be more educative and directive, whereas one-to-one therapy can sometimes be less about 'doing' and more about 'being' with your present experience, which encourages change.

"Extremely good!!  Katrina is never one sided and always helps us to to look at things from different perspectives."

 

  • Parents are welcome to bring pre-crawling babies to sessions.  It allows psychotherapy and relational counselling to be more accessible.  I have experience of it working well, see FAQ's for more information.  

  • I also able to offer "Walk and Talk" sessions for individual clients where we walk with awareness in the countryside near my practice room.   This can be calming and shed new light on old problems.
