As a psychologist, Kate takes a holistic and integrative approach, as well drawing on the evidence- base to consider which approach might be best suited to supporting people to work towards their goals. Kate draws on a range of therapeutic approaches, including systemic, CBT and third wave therapies (ACT, DBT and CFT).
While born in London, Kate grew up in Ireland. There she completed her undergraduate degree in Applied Psychology at University College Cork, before moving to London to complete her master’s degree (MSc) in Applied Paediatric Neuropsychology at University College London (UCL). She then began her career within the NHS, working as an assistant psychologist in paediatric neuropsychology services assessing children with various neurological conditions, including epilepsy and traumatic brain injuries. These experiences cemented an interest in the relationship between physical and mental health. Kate began her Doctorate in clinical psychology at UCL in 2013, where her clinical placements allowed her to further develop skills in multiple therapeutic approaches, including CBT and systemic models. Her research focused on the impact of fasting on cognition.
