Catherine Telford sets an attuning, empathic holding environment where experiences, thoughts and feelings can be heard, and given space. Working primarily from a Person Centred approach to bring about what is present for the client, she also works from Transactional Analysis to help clients see what is going on in their communications and behaviours and also draws on Gestalt Therapy to bring about more awareness for the client. Whether it be profound feelings of loss or feeling lost, confusion, stuck-ness, or having feelings of anxiety or depression; whatever is difficult, through congruent curiosity and exploration of the issues that are alive and present for the client, she works in a collaborative way to co-create a process of re-organisation for the client, to effect towards more stability, balance and well-being.
Catherine’s background includes living extensively abroad and working with music and movement together in different cultural groups and has a former career in the creative arts. She is particularly interested in turning the light on and illuminating what is happening on the inside while everything is going on outside such as changes of job or life circumstances, in addition to, major life transitions to bring about more understanding for the client’s integration and quality of being-ness in life.
