Therapist

I can`t put into words how much Catherine has helped me.
I was in a horrible place when I first spoke to her,
But she has taught me so many new skills I can practice alone and when I'm in difficult situations.
Being a man in todays world can be very scary for men to speak out, But no matter your gender Catherine is the perfect person to help she made me feel so safe and happy to open up to her and i am a person who hated talking about my feelings and emotions but I felt alone and down and thought therapy wouldn't help at the time but I gave it a go and oh my god was i wrong!
Catherine is so professional and friendly i feel like i have known her my whole life! Honestly she will feel like a blessing for anyone who is having troubles in life
She really helped me see the stereotypes of therapy aren't all right.
Its not sitting on a sofa with them saying
'hmmm' and 'yeahhh' repeatedly
she actually helps me pinpoint my problem and we figure a way to overcome it or remove it
I wouldn't be the person I am today without her
thanks for reading hopefully this helps you choose the right person to help you in your journey

I reached out to Catherine at a very low point in my life, I was nervous about starting therapy but she reassured me and made me feel at ease. After a few sessions I felt like I had recognised what the underlying problem was and I was able to manage and change my life for the better and Catherine was there for me every step of the way, I can’t thank her enough, I feel like a new person, I feel free. Catherine helped me understand the way I was thinking and behaving which was really useful. I made life changing decisions whilst having therapy with Catherine and I really believe if I hadn’t of chosen to start therapy I wouldn’t be in the happy place I am in today. A lot of people have commented that the life and sparkle has returned to my eyes and that is most definitely with the help of Catherine, I would recommend her all day, everyday. More...

Working with Catherine has been such a enjoyable experience I was quite nervous about speaking to a stranger about my anger and depression issues but Catherine made me feel so comfortable and welcoming and I loved every bit of time we spent together! Catherine has changed my life around and I thank her so much for that!
Life for me now is so happy again and I will miss our chats together! I can’t speak highly enough about Catherine im so glad I got in touch with her she’s changed my life around and I thank her so much for that!!

Catherine was very easy to speak and open up to. I felt immediately comfortable but most importantly for me, heard.
Catherine is skilled at helping you see things from another perspective and using a different approach to tackling conflict.
I would recommend Catherine to anyone who is struggling with their emotions or with any kind of personal conflict.

Couples Counselling

I found Catherine in a very difficult moment in my life when I was going through a rough path with my husband.

Catherine helped me discover myself and showed me how important is to love myself first and then anyone else. Before starting the sessions with Catherine I didn't appreciate myself very much, my relationship was the only thing I was living for. We spent hours talking about me and she helped me to find my inner power.

She never told me what to do but always asked me the right questions that helped me reflect and find the right answers.

With Catherine's helpe I managed to look in the mirror and say "I love you so much, I am the most precious person in my life"

I would highly recommend Catherine as a counsellor!

My husband and I started sessions with Catherine for marriage counselling. From the very first meeting she was very friendly
and extremely easy to talk too. We were both anxious as never had counselling before, also with being online due to CoVid we were unsure how it would go. We didn’t need to worry at all. Thank you so much Catherine. More...

I found that working with Catherine, was just what I needed after suffering a loss which led to me having panic attacks. She worked me with so well and made me feel so comfortable with being able to talk to her about everything and her process of help, helped me so much. So much so that I haven’t had a panic attack in over 3 months, which is amazing. I couldn’t thank Catherine enough for all the help and support that she gave me and will forever be grateful to her 😊 More...

I originally got in contact with Cathrine due to suffering with anxiety and not understanding why. Within a matter of weeks Cathrine had unpicked my brain and managed to bring out subconscious issues I had been suffering with for many years. This made me face the issues I had carried with me nearly my whole life. Cathrine helped me build my self confidence and manage my anxiety, if I hadn’t of met Cathrine, I wouldn’t have plucked up the courage to go to university and cut out unnecessary anxieties in my life. I now manage anxiety very well, I feel like a completely different person. Thank you Catherine. More...

I have been working with Catherine for seven months now. She has got me through an extremely difficult time through advice, guidance, techniques and laughter.

Catherine has made me realise how to be “me” again and has done so with professionalism, kindness, compassion and empathy.

Catherine, I can’t thank you enough for your support through what I can say is one of the worst stages of my life.

Catherine is the epitome of what a counsellor should be, using personalism and treating me as an individual, catering her techniques to suit my needs.

I honestly can not recommend Catherine enough, you really are an amazing person and I have loved working with you and will miss our regular meetings.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have been my rock!

I had sessions with Catherine for around 10 months and it was an absolute pleasure. When I started I felt consumed with anxiety to the point where it was taking over my life somewhat. But over time with Catherine's help I became much more in control of this. I came away
from the sessions feeling so much more at ease with everything. Thank you Catherine.

Relationship and Marriage Counselling

My wife and I have learned so much about ourselves and each other through couples therapy with Catherine. It has been an invaluable experience which has helped a great deal. Therapy isn't a magic wand, and it takes both of you to want to the sake thing for it to be successful. No one wants to be at a point where they are considering it, but if you are I cannot speak highly enough of Catherine. The sessions were reassuring, supportive, insightful, constructive and meaningful. We definitely wouldnt be where we are now without them. More...

Having been struggling for quite some time with various issues, I finally took the step to seek therapy and found Catherine. I was a little sceptical at first but I am so glad that I took that step and I can't recommend Catherine highly enough. I am in a much better place now thanks to our sessions. If I feel like I need more help/support in future then I wont hesitate to contact Catherine again. More...

I was apprehensive at first about seeking help but after my initial phone conversation with Catherine I felt more at ease about it. After my first session I felt like a weight had been lifted. Catherine made me feel so comfortable and at ease and has honestly helped me become a better person. She listened to my problems and then talked them through with me to better understand how to deal with them. I’m so happy I made the decision to get help and am glad it was with Catherine. More...

I immediately felt very comfortable talking about myself. I openly shared and recieved a great amount of support and understanding, yet a constructively objective point of view. Throughout the time with Catherine I managed to open up more to questions I've had about myself and she helped me figure out ways to feel more confident about solving them. She also provided me with scientific explanations to some behaviour patterns that really helped in understanding how to change the things I do not like about my behavior.
Definatley someone I could trust and go to for advice, and also someone who'd sincerely listen to me.

She's got a way of making you see the rational side of things even when its hard to see. She was a massive part of my mental recovery and ill always be grateful for that. Can't recommend her enough.

I can’t give Catherine enough praise. The work she has done with me and how she has helped me develop as a person is incredible. I was initially terrified to go to counselling but from the minute I arrived, Catherine made me feel comfortable, relaxed and most importantly heard. I can’t begin to describe how much my life and relationships have improved since my sessions, Catherine is simply fantastic in every way and I doubt there’s a better counsellor anywhere close. Thank you for everything. More...

As soon as i met Catherine i felt at ease, She helped me get my mental health back on track and actually starting to see the good in situations and not just the bad, I never thought that i would feel happy in my own skin/ life and after a few months i started to feel more confident and my outlook on life massively changed. My life is so much different to how it was the main thing is i actually feel happy with who i am as a person. More...

Couples Counselling

My husband and I recently had some couples therapy sessions with Catherine. It wasn't that we were at the point of wanting to get a divorce; more that we felt that we wanted a bit of support before things got out of hand. We were arguing a lot and getting really frustrated. There was also a lot of pain following our ectopic pregnancy and whilst we had received support separately, we felt that it would help us to look for some more help together.

Catherine helped us to feel relaxed in the sessions and we didn't feel judged. We've had a lot going on and having the space to just take some time to reflect and speak to each other about how things have affected us has made a massive difference.

Catherine also provided us with some really good strategies that we then talked about a lot after each session too. This approach was quite different from the therapy we'd tried before (talking) and we found it really useful.

I wish I could say that she waved a magic wand over our relationship and that we never ever row! Sadly, I can't - but what I can say is that we have been using some of the strategies and taking more time to respond to each other a bit more sensitively as well as talking about why we might have argued. I feel like we would be better placed to face challenges as they come up in the future and knowing that we can get some help from Catherine again if we do need it is a big reassurance.

So if you are reading this and are considering getting some support, I can honestly say that I would totally recommend getting in touch with Catherine - we're really grateful for her help.

When I first started meeting with Cath, I was suffering quite bad with anxiety, had no clue how to control my anger and at times would get quite down. Whilst working with Cath we managed to come up with tactics on how to ease my anxiety and anger, we found ways that works for me and I still find them easy to use now by myself. When working with Cath she made me feel at ease, she was easy to speak about my issues and I never felt judged. Would highly recommend, feel like she has helped equip me for if I ever do feel myself sliding back in to old ways. More...

Catherine was the perfect support when I needed it most.

Q&As

I enjoy supporting people to be the best they can be. It is a pleasure to be a light in times of darkness and difficulty.

I am a very independent individual and wanted the flexibility of running my own therapeutic practice.

People should choose the person they feel they can connect with. The therapeutic journey can be tough, the therapist and the client will embark upon the journey together.
