More about Katherine
Systemic Couple and Family Therapy is an effective approach to support those affected by an extensive range of psychological difficulties experienced by Children, Young People and Adults. It can also be valuable in supporting those wishing to improve couple or family relationships, or those affected by loss or changes that may place particular stress on relationships.
My overall approach is Strengths and Resilience orientated and can combine Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness informed approaches, when appropriate.
My work often involves working with those around the person most affected, such as parents. I work collaborative and flexibly, offering a bespoke service, underpinned by the latest evidence based principles.
Within the NHS, my experience spans a variety of contexts including Community and Inpatient Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Specialist Eating Disorder Services. I also have experience in contributing to Neurodevelopmental assessments, such as Autistic Spectrum Conditions and have worked within Children’s Paediatric Inpatient Services and Palliative Care.
Alongside my clinical role, over the years, I have been involved in Service Development and Leadership, as well as providing Training, Supervision and Consultation. I currently work part time as a Senior Systemic Psychotherapist within Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
In my private practice, I initially worked with the Oxford Priory Wellbeing Centre before developing my own Independent Practice in locations across Oxford. In 2018 I extended my service to include a range of online options.
I am a fully qualified Systemic Couple and Family Psychotherapist accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and Association of Family Therapy (AFT) to work with Children and Young People of all ages, and Adults.
