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, but 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.
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 and recently completed Bessel van der Kolk's 'Trauma Treatment Mastery Certificate'. I aim to qualify in EMDR next year.
Sessions are usually held in Norwich Wellbeing Centre.
50 minute session: £50, concessions available depending on circumstances.
