Welcome

Hello there, are you struggling right now to parent your child, is your child having lots of meltdowns, is anxious and you’ve stopped enjoying being with them? Let me help you with your concerns by reading more below.

My name is Catherine, I am a Bristol based licensed Child and Family therapist and trainer. I offer Individual/Parent Therapy, Family Counselling, Sleep Consultations and Workshops for adults, children and families. I want to share what I’ve learned from 30 years within the NHS and 19 years working as a Highly Specialist Clinician in CAMHS.

Over the years, I have developed an integrative approach to neuroscience, attachment, systemic and practical strategies. I specialize in the under 13’s and work with difficulties/problems in this age group, please see more below or at my services

I guess I’ve worked with 1000’s of clients with complex trauma, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Parenting is hard, my aim is to share skills to empower you to discover new sources of strength to meet your daily parenting challenges. This is so you and your child can feel more confident and secure.

I  am a mum too and have weathered many challenging parenting situations myself and understand what it is like to be on the “other side”. Like you, we all survived the ups, downs, highs, and lows from baby to adulthood with compassion and acceptance. You can find out more about me in “my story page”
