Hi I’m Kate, Clinical Psychologist, CBT and EMDR Therapist

I’m a Senior Clinical Psychologist with over 14 years experience working within the NHS, before moving into independent practice. I’ve spent the majority of my career working within a Complex Cases Team, helping clients with a wide variety of symptoms and difficulties. I’m still passionate about the NHS and felt sad to leave, however I have a young family and wanted to have more flexibility in my work and the opportunity to offer more choice to my clients.

I specialise in working with trauma and relationship difficulties. So often, the things we are struggling with in life, can be linked back to our early life experiences or difficult life events which can have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves, our relationships with others and our overall well being. My goal is to help my clients understand and make sense of their experiences and how their current difficulties may fit into this, and to help them learn new skills to break old patterns so that they can reclaim the life that they want.

I love what I do. It’s truly a privilege when clients’ share their own personal stories with me and I’m always blown away by their courage, strength and resilience as they confront and overcome their biggest fears.

But never expect me to do anything before my morning coffee!

When I’m not working, I’m usually chasing around after my two young children or walking our dog, Henry, in the Cheshire countryside.
