Catherine Watson Counsellor/Psychotherapist MBACP (Accredited), MSc Psychology, PGDipCouns
I am a person-centred / pluralistic counsellor and psychotherapist. I am an accredited member of the BACP.
The idea behind the name Clear Reflection is that when we explore our concerns with a person who is trained and skilled in listening, we can see a clearer picture of ourselves and what is going on in our lives as if we are looking in a mirror. We can also take time to think and reflect out loud, which can make our thought processes become clearer. As well as providing a safe space for you to explore your concerns, I use other methods such as CBT, Mindfulness and Focusing with those who would like to work in a more structured way.
I am experienced with working with mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression, OCD and mood disorders such as bipolar. I also frequently carry out bereavement work and can do a structured exploration of this if preferred. Relationships, work stress, post-natal difficulties and decision making are also among the topics I often work with. Whatever your concerns, I aim to see you as a whole person in the context of your life and experiences, rather than simply treating a 'problem'. I am also a part time Associate Lecturer with The Open University in the School of Psychology & Counselling.
If you're a creative or outdoorsy person, or would find it difficult to attend sessions in person, read about alternative services I can offer.
I have a strong interest in trauma, having completed Bessel van der Kolk's 'Trauma Treatment Mastery Certificate' and the NICABM 'Advanced Master Program in the Treatment of Trauma'. From the beginning of May 2021 I will be able to offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), a specialised psychotherapeutic treatment for trauma (Training organisation: EMDR Works)
Additional special interests of mine are climate change grief/anxiety and Developmental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia).
Sessions are usually held in Norwich Wellbeing Centre.
50 minute session:
General Counselling: £50
