Professional statement

Dr Kate Du Toit is an HCPC registered counselling psychologist and chartered member and associate fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) in London. Dr Du Toit is an experienced clinician who for the past 10 years has worked with a wide range of client groups across a variety of settings including the NHS, private, and charity sectors as well as organisational settings. Her clinical expertise and interests are focused on, but not limited to, trauma, anxiety, depression, meaninglessness, attachment and relational difficulties, emotional regulation, life transitions, sexuality, and gender identity issues. In addition to individual psychotherapy, Dr Du Toit also works extensively with couples, families, and groups.
 
Dr Du Toit's approach is drawn from existential, humanistic, and psychodynamic schools of thought. An integrative practitioner, she utilises these approaches flexibly in accordance with the subjective needs and difficulties of each of her clients, with therapeutic efforts collaboratively tailored around the individual experiences of her clients’. Her style of working is dialogical and interactive in nature, taking into consideration a holistic understanding of each person’s unique predicament in terms of past experiences, present situation and future ambitions, and the ways in which their dilemma manifests itself on an emotional, embodied, and relational level.
 
At the heart of Dr Du Toit’s clinical practice is the underlying philosophical view that the success of any therapeutic work fundamentally rests upon the quality of the therapeutic relationship. With this in mind, her therapeutic stance is always aimed at facilitating a genuine, honest, and real engagement with her clients founded upon trust, care and openness that allows for exploration of personal and sensitive issues within a safe and confidential therapeutic space. Through collaborative engagement, Dr Du Toit’s therapeutic endeavors are aimed at addressing and examining the nature and function of her clients’ concerns in a way that fosters increased awareness and self-understanding and cultivates motivation and efficacy in being able to move forward with a renewed sense of passion and purpose in living an authentic and empowered life.
 
In addition to Dr Du Toit’s clinical training and expertise, she is also an experienced supervisor and trainer and a recognized fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She has spent several years working in academia on doctoral trainings in counselling psychology and psychotherapy, including leadership roles, teaching and training, clinical supervision, research, and viva-voce examinations. Dr Du Toit has comprehensive knowledge and deep passion for existential, phenomenological, and postmodern philosophies, as well as their application to clinical practice. Dr Du Toit is particularly interested in research topics that seek to question or challenge the prevailing medical discourse, in addition to topics that involve giving voice to oppressed or marginalized groups, themes of embodiment, intersubjectivity, gender and sexuality, and the use of creativity and arts in therapeutic practice. She is a member of the Society for Existential Analysis (SEA) and holds a certificate in Clinical Supervision and Existential Coaching.
