Underpinning Philosophy

Fundamental to Cathy’s psycho-therapeutic practice is a strong belief in the power of listening to the client. Cathy strives to provide the client with the space to revisit and talk through matters most pressing in their current or past life – in this way – sitting with clients who make their own insightful connections and breakthroughs. Cathy draws from an integrative range of psycho-therapeutic approaches adapting to the client’s needs, as appropriate.
