Dr Katie Jackson, Chartered Clinical Psychologist
Psychological therapy allows time and space for you to reflect on and work through difficult life experiences e.g. traumatic events, work related stress, bereavement etc. This means that it is important for you find the right therapist to suit your individual needs.
I work with people to build a strong working alliance and together we think about how best to cope with your circumstances.
I offer psychological therapy for a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship difficulties, phobias and medically unexplained symptoms to name a few. Sometimes you won't necessarily have a 'name' for your difficulties and that's fine. I work with people to think about how they have arrived at the place they are in today and how we take steps to move forward.
Everyone I see will have a tailored psychological assessment at the beginning of their therapy journey and we will establish clear goals to work towards.
I am happy to offer:
- Trauma focused therapy
- Integrative psychological therapy

Registered / Accredited

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.
