Catherine Connan


Psychotherapy and counselling can help an individual improve their emotional wellbeing, resilience and the quality of their relationships, addressing symptoms including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, isolation and a sense of being lost.

My philosophy is rooted in my belief that infants develop their sense of who they are and how to form and maintain relationships in the environment created by the important people in their lives. As they grow into adulthood this way of being governs, perhaps unconsciously, behaviours and relationships. But, what may have worked in childhood may not work so well in adulthood. When this is the case, people come to therapy seeking change.

Through the relationship we build together, I support my clients’ autonomy and ability to be who they are. Leaving behind their old relational patterns, they can connect and engage more fully with those who are important in their lives today.

For some this process of change is straightforward, but for most of us it is challenging. The result, however, can be wonderful and life enhancing. I offer the safety, containment, support and insight my clients need to explore their difficulties and engage in the process of change.

I have a First Class degree in Psychology, a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy.  

I am a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
