Dr Katherine Peckitt
I think it is completely normal that at different points in our lives, we need help with our emotional obstacles. I believe therapy helps people to re-connect with their strengths and resources. The approaches that I might include in my work are:
- Attachment theory, an approach which considers early childhood and care giving experiences and how these influence current relationships with self and others
- Narrative therapy, as a way to think about which stories have become a way of expressing someone’s identity
- Systemic therapy, as an approach to think about family relationships and role of each family member in this system
- Social inequalities, as a way of thinking about socio-economic factors, like money, education, ethnicity and how these impact on people’s health and well-being
- Cognitive behavioural therapy, to identify the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Consequently I am an integrative practitioner which means that after the initial consultation, I tailor psychological interventions to people’s personal circumstances.
I am experienced in supporting families with children, who live with complex health conditions and/or life-limiting conditions.
