Holistic Psychology Perth
Holistic Psychology Perth is run by Katharine Milazzo, Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and private space to talk about your concerns and difficulties. I meet with clients at The Nest. The Nest is a bright, quiet and comfortable ground floor therapy space located in Perth city centre. The consulting room is a large room with plenty of space for social distancing. There is also a private outside courtyard space for outdoor sessions.
I have been fully qualified as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist since 2007. My qualification has provided me with a particular combination of skills; the specialist mental health training of an applied psychologist and the listening expertise of a counsellor.
My approach to psychological therapy is both integrative (using different therapeutic models tailored for each individual) and holistic (looking at the whole person - psychological, emotional , physical and existential). I try to take a proactive approach to enable people to discover and understand the blocks that might be stopping them from moving forward.
Sessions would include helping clients to learn strategies to help themselves cope with stress, to let go of past trauma and understand how this past trauma might be affecting their lives currently.
I am in the final stages of training as a creative visionary practitioner. This approach allows me to offer body work, imagery, dream work and story work to my clients which can be hugely transformative by helping them discover their own innate ability to heal themselves.
I am also in the final stages of training as a kundalini yoga teacher. Through this training I can offer specialised meditation and breathwork techniques which can help with many different types of mental health difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background includes working in various roles in the mental health services in the NHS, and my professional training was based in the NHS in a variety of settings and with people with a range of needs, including children and families. I have also worked with pregnant women and new mums individually and in groups outside the NHS in different organisations in Perth and Edinburgh.
I have also worked in the voluntary and private sector.
As well as working in primary and secondary mental health, I also have experience in different specialist areas such as post traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, alcohol problems and pre and postnatal mental health.
