I am Katie, and I am a clear, honest and strongly encouraging therapist, who is open to working with people from all walks of life.
The type of therapy I practice is Relational and Embodied. This means that I will always connect with you first, and look at ways of working together which compliment your nature. I have a very fluid style of working- so I will meet each individual differently. I will work with you by offering close attention, and providing a relationship where we can be as un-defended and curious as possible. Nothing is too small, too large or too complex to be worked with, from this basis.
I believe humour to be a hugely important part of connecting with one another, so always work in a way which is open to laughter and inviting of creative energy.
Both short term work, as well as longer term work is available. You will find your own way through therapy, and the journey will tend to take the time it needs in order to be valuable and enriching.
Whatever the issue, there will be a way to speak about it together. I provide a totally open space, free of stigma, where you can speak about what is true for you.

I offer sessions at £40 for one hour.
Concessions are available by arrangement. I really welcome open conversations around fees.
