Like all Shift Psychologists, Katherine is trained in the Shift Protocol, which is the highly effective blending of two well-researched approaches: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Bilateral Stimulation. I also have specific training/experience in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Motivational Interviewing

Who inspires you and why?

My clients! Change can be one of the hardest, scariest, most humbling things that someone can do, and I get to watch this happen regularly!
