My name is Dr Kathryn Pemberton and I'm a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and hold Chartered status with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
After gaining a first class honours degree in Psychology, I trained to be Clinical Psychologist on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology course at Lancaster University, graduating in 2011.
I have extensive experience of working with adults on difficulties such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma and relational difficulties.
I am also a qualified Practitioner and Supervisor in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and a member of the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT). I really like the CAT approach (you can read more about CAT here) as it's collaborative, respectful - and it can really help.
To me, therapy shouldn’t be boring or something to worry about, it should be interesting, sometimes even exciting but always focussed, goal driven and feel safe.
As a clinical psychologist, I am trained in many different approaches and I hold the importance of our therapeutic relationship as a central part of the work. This is one of the reasons why I have found CAT really useful. The clients I have worked with have given such positive feedback about their experience with me using CAT that this is the main approach I now use in therapy.
