About Me

I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with nearly 15 years experience of working with emotional difficulties. I offer CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing), EMDR flash therapy and integrate ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) into my practice.

I started my career in the NHS and have been in exclusive private practice since 2014. I pride myself on using techniques which have been clinically proven and are supported by a sound evidence base. This means I keep up to date with new research to ensure I provide high quality treatment.

I am passionate about what I do and feel genuinely privileged to work with my clients.

The Forest of

Kate Southwell CBT Limited

I talk to clients a lot about values, what matters to them, and how to make changes in life to reflect the things that are important. I’m trying to do this more myself and have therefore started a “virtual forest” through a charity called “tree nation”. I have committed to plant a tree for every single client session I hold and every delegate that attends my workshops. My webpage is also carbon neutral.
