About me

Hello, my name is Kathryn. Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist, registered with The Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and British Psychological Society. I am currently working online and can offer online therapy to anyone in the UK. I have worked in the NHS as a Senior Clinical Psychologist and now work as an independent Clinical Psychologist.

I offer evidence based psychological assessment and therapy for individuals who are experiencing difficulty or a pivotal point in their lives where they have come to the realisation that something needs to change in order to move forward. Often people would like help in making sense of what is/has happened and how to move forward.

We will work on your individual goals and tailor therapy to meet your individual needs. I provide a confidential, compassionate and non-judgemental safe space.

First Appointment:

When we first meet, we will discuss what you are currently experiencing, what has brought you to the decision to come to therapy and what your goals are. We will discuss what may be of benefit to you and whether we wish to move forward into therapy together. There is no commitment to proceed and you can stop therapy at any point.


I tailor psychological therapy to meet the needs of the individual. Some of the psychological approaches I use include but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).  
  • Compassion Focused Therapy.
  • Personal Construct Psychotherapy.
  • Attachment Theory.
  • Cognitive Analytic Informed Therapy.
  • I have an interest in the impact of nature on managing distress, emotions and general well-being.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
