“In the time I have been consulting with Kathryn my life has improved in a number of areas. There has been clear professional growth and my personal relations are better than they ever have been. Crucially, Kathryn has introduced me to a number of techniques that enable me to handle my day-to-day pressures better than in the past.
At first, I was unconvinced by the processes of psychology and therapy. Now, it is a crucial part of my routine and I have Kathryn to thank for her meticulous and thoughtful work”MTEditor

Kathryn has helped me navigate my way through and out of this part of my life, teaching and coaching me in new ways of thinking and dispelling distressing thoughts and thought patterns. Kathryn has provided continuity from one session to the next drawing on a vast knowledge and understanding. I have found her to be clear, calm, supportive and highly practical. Thank you Kathryn””DSArtist
