I specialist in supporting clients who have experienced trauma (including complex trauma), family violence, sexual assault , medical trauma, religious abuse and childhood issues.
Do you feel overwhelmed or are you finding it difficult to cope? Part of being human and living life, means that there are times when we need extra support, but it isn't always easy to reach out. Other times it's hard to reach out because we've experienced things so painful and traumatic that it feels like you will never be understood. This often leaves us feeling unworthy, not good enough and unsafe and burdened with a pain that can never be shared.

My name is Kathryn. I work with those who have experienced interpersonal trauma, birth trauma or vicarious (secondary) trauma. Traumatic experiences can radically shift how we experience the world, leaving us anxious, confused and untrusting. For those with interpersonal trauma, other people are unsafe and we doubt our own judgements. For those who had a birth trauma, the joy of a new baby is paired with distress, and the challenges of a changed identity and intimate relationship. For those with vicarious trauma, the traumas of others start to become our own. Fortunately, with help, you can find yourself again.
