About me

My name is Catherine Graves, and I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist working with adults in open ended and short-term therapy at Haggerston HQ and St Pauls.

I am an accredited member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and fully adhere to their code of ethics.

I work with clients from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, at different stages of their lives who present a range of emotional difficulties.

Together we can explore experiences from both past and present, in a non-judgmental, confidential, safe space to try and observe how they may inform the motivations behind behaviours that frustrate and confuse our lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at WPF where I worked in their clinic for 4 years, I also have experience of working at Maytree a suicidal residential respite centre. I now work in private practice.

Sessions are 50 mins long on a weekly basis. I offer open-ended or short-term therapy (more focused), in person and online, where appropriate.

I have full insurance, my work is supervised on a weekly basis and I continue to attend workshops and seminars to continue my professional development.
