Kathryn’s first experience of psychotherapy was as a young adult training to be a teacher in Oxford when she learned first-hand how a skilled psychotherapist can help their client heal, strengthen and reset the trajectory of his or her life.
Years later, following her divorce, Kathryn benefited from a shorter course of more practical counselling, whereby she learned tools for dealing effectively with various challenges. At this time, she was also introduced to hypnotherapy which for her was a more rapid way of facilitating change both in behaviours and mood as well as outlook.
In 2012, Kathryn completed a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling accredited by The Royal School of Nursing. More recently, she completed a Certificate Programme in Advanced Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy. with The School of Clinical & Neurolinguistic Hypnotherapy. This is approved by The National Hypnotherapy Society as an Advanced Specialist Training Course and Kathryn has been excited by how this has enhanced her provision for her clients.
Following her career in Education where she worked in school leadership for seventeen years and also for five years as an Independent Schools Inspector, Kathryn has a particular specialism in working with children and adolescents, and also with adults who work in schools.
Mindfulness includes practices supported by neuroscience for stress reduction, enhancement of creativity, increased concentration and emotional equilibrium. Having experienced these benefits for adults, Kathryn was keen to train with the Mindfulness In Schools Project and she now offers Mindfulness teaching to children in schools, as well as in her private practice.
