Hey, I’m Katie and I’m an Integrative Psychotherapist and Coach at Calm Journey therapy.
I’ve been providing developmental services for over 20 years, and like most of us, have experienced various life challenges myself.
I believe that counselling is like any other great relationship. Trust (and I mean real trust) is absolutely key. Having this as part of a therapeutic relationship helps clients to really work through what is causing pain or making life difficult. I create a peaceful space for you to be heard when no one else is listening.
There are so many reasons why people decide to explore therapy. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stuck or in despair, and those feelings can be all encompassing. Or maybe you’re not even sure what to think or feel, you just know that you need some help.
Everyone should have the right to good mental health, don’t you think?
I offer both short and long-term therapy for adults aged 17 and over on a one-to-one basis which can either be remote or face to face.I also provide relationship counselling which often (but not always) involves both parties attending therapy together. My approach is integrative, meaning that I draw on different theories and approaches depending on what YOU need and what is right for YOU. I am a member of the BACP, and I really believe what they stand for, which is to provide therapy in a safe, confidential, non judgemental and trusted environment.
Alongside my therapeutic work I am also a Mental Health First-Aid Instructor, a Suicide First Aid Instructor, a qualified coach and a leadership facilitator. All of these support people in feeling better more of the time.
Working as Duty Welfare Officer for a Fire and Rescue service means that I have extensive experience of supporting people facing trauma and PTSD.
A little about me…. I absolutely love to learn and am intrigued by life and human behaviour, for this reason I enjoy the work I do so much. I am a Mum, a daughter and a partner. I cherish my family. I love to cook and have long walks in the woods or by the sea.
The therapist you choose needs to be right for you therefore I always recommend a chat first so that we can discuss your needs and make sure therapy will support you.
I work with clients by using an integration of different schools of psychotherapy including but not limited to, psychodynamic work and cognitive behavioural therapy. This allows a well crafted approach aligning to what my client needs.
Psychodynamic therapy is an approach that generates a deep understanding of not only peoples emotions and mental processing, but also helps to provide greater insight into how they feel and think. By improving this understanding of the ‘what’ AND the ‘why’ means people can then make better choices about their lives.
