Professional statement

Hello

I'm a chartered psychologist based in central London. I love my job. I feel very privileged to work with some wonderful people and help them work through difficult periods in their life.

I specialise in the psychology of high achievers. I understand the intrinsic challenges of your occupations. To everyone else, it may seem like you have everything. You may even feel guilty for having problems. I know that despite outward appearances you may be unhappy and suffering from a range of psychological problems. Your physical health may also be suffering. At such times, you may need an experienced psychologist who can help you get your life back on track and so you can start to enjoy your success.

I know your time is precious. I have over 25 years’ experience of delivering and researching psychological services. During this time, I have developed my own style that rapidly helps you to discover the core reason for your problems. I draw upon a range of approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), hypnosis, somatic psychology and neuropsychology to provide you with optimal therapy solutions.

You should also know that I'm on the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) register and that I am an Associate Fellow (AFBPsS) of the British Psychological Society (BPS). 

You may be also interested to know that despite being based in London, I regularly see clients from around the world who see me on their visits to London and via e-Consultation in between.

I have a professional team to support my practice. This means that booking appointments, answering queries, dealing with invoices, insurance claims, writing reports etc. is all responsive and smooth which takes away any added administrative stress of arranging to see a psychologist.

Do get in touch or visit my websites if you want to find out more.

Catherine is very kind and easy to open up to, she explains scenarios and theories very clearly and always brings it back to real examples in your own life. i saw her during covid restrictions so all appointments were via video call.
