Hi! I’m Kat and I’m a Clinical Psychologist.

Can you tell me a bit about your experience?

I began working in the NHS in 2010 and have supported people across the lifespan from young children to older adults with a range of difficulties. In my NHS work, I am the Lead for Psychology and Psychotherapies in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health team, which supports young people and their families with a variety of mental health needs. I have worked as a Principal Psychologist for the last four years across two different roles.

I lead on the provision of therapeutic work and provide specialist assessments and clinical supervision. I also work as a tutor with the Association of Psychological Therapies in which I deliver training for health and social care professionals in a variety of therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.

I have been working privately with The Oak Tree Practice / Little Bee Clinic for the last three years. My previous NHS roles have spanned a range of areas in adult and child mental health, including a specialist eating disorder team, a postnatal mental health service and a long-term health conditions service.

My thesis examined Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in the postnatal period. Overseas experience in hospitals in India and South Africa has furthered my passion in inclusive and culturally sensitive work.

What would it be like to meet you?

Currently I am offering autism assessments with The Oak Tree Practice / Little Bee Clinic. As part of the assessment team, I aim to support you through the assessment process by providing clear information about the assessment and making sure you feel able to ask any questions, both before and after the assessment.

We want the assessment, report and feedback to be a useful and supportive process, where possible tailoring it to your needs and experiences. Our aim is for this to be a strengths-focused process that embraces the positive attributes of neurodiversity.

What do you enjoy outside of psychology?

Spending time with people is important to me so I enjoy being with my family and friends. I have a playful French Bulldog so I love taking him for long walks at the weekends. Music has always been a passion of mine and I try to get to lots of live music.
