Over 10 Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I'm Kate. I'm a registered clinical psychologist - I assist individuals, couples and families with their emotional health. I hold private sector experience as a clinical psychologist. My focus involves depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as well as the specific challenges faced by men and women.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment meeting enables you to see if you are comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an introductory assessment session in Salisbury.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts influence your emotions and behaviour. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts which maintain the issues you encounter. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends CBT for Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal therapy concentrates on the interpersonal concerns you encounter. It facilitates you in comprehending issues differently. An aim of interpersonal therapy is to help you make useful alterations in how you relate.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends interpersonal therapy for depression.

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your mind, feelings and behaviour. It offers you psychological interventions and mental health support. The objective of psychological therapies is to help you alleviate symptoms.

Systemic Therapy

Systemic therapy focuses on the system of interactions between you and people. It addresses the interactions which perpetuate the interpersonal conflicts you experience. Systemic therapy intends to help you improve how you communicate with people.

Thoughts on Mental Health

CBT alone is good for mild to moderate depression. If you have severe depression then your GP may suggest CBT and anti-depressant medication together. CBT is collaborative, so you must be motivated to engage with the therapy and perform tasks in between sessions. 'It only takes one therapist to change a lightbulb but the lightbulb has to want to change'. Your therapist can't do CBT 'to' someone who doesn't want to be there. Most people see a large reduction in depression, possibly a complete remission, and find themselves equipped with strategies to recognise early warning signs in the future and implement a relapse prevention strategy. They should be a clinical psychologist, accredited CBT therapist or another therapist (e.g. counsellor) who has had specific CBT training from an accredited organisation.
