I’m Katherine. I have been a part of the Platfform Wellbeing team since September 2021 and i’m the Head of Therapies.
I enjoy being part of a compassionate and responsive team where our counsellors feel supported and encouraged in their professional development. Equally, our clients feel supported in discussing their counselling needs and queries with people who will listen and understand.
I began my career in Cardiff working in mental health as a junior doctor, but soon found myself drifting away from the medical model of symptoms and diagnosis towards a more trauma-informed approach. I swapped my stethoscope for a comfy chair and began my Level 5 training in Counselling.
After a few years of private practice intermingled with raising a lively family of four, I returned to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling in 2018 and to specialise with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People in 2019. Additionally. I’m also an accredited member of the BACP.
When I am not working, I like to spend time with close friends, especially outdoors and can be found at the beach or in a kayak in the summer months, enjoying the beautiful coastal regions of South Wales.
