Catherine’s Practice

I would welcome counselling individuals of all ages with a variety of concerns. I am particularly interested in working with individuals going through life transitions. Even when the transition is desired (for example, being in a relationship, becoming a parent, or getting a new job) the associated changes can be difficult. Transitions resulting from unwanted circumstances, such as separation and divorce, grief and loss, loneliness and rejection, abuse, illness, injury, (dis)Ability, and job loss can be particularly challenging. Whether your transition was desired or forced, counselling can be an effective way for you to receive the support, insight and strength you need to manage the storm and find your calm waters again. 

I have research and practice experience in the area of identity formation and transformations, which are often (but not always) associated with momentous life transitions that may have stunted or shaken your sense of self. Two distinct areas of identity work that hold interest for me are related to gender and sexuality and social group leavings, particularly the identity challenges associated with leaving high demand groups, such as sects, cults, gangs, and political or ideological movements.
