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 them? Let me help you 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 in the Early Years and Middle Years.  Click here for my fees.

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 have a bit of a mission, the question I want to answer through my work is:

“How we can create a better-connected society to raise confident and secure children.”

To respond to that question, my website, workshops, and face to face work are reflections and expression of my life’s work. you can check out more about my Story>> here

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. Do contact me, so I can empower you now.
