My name is Katherine and welcome to True You Therapy.
Like many practitioners in the helping professions, it was my own life struggles that led me to become deeply curious about life, happiness, health, and healing. My ‘dark nights of the soul’ compelled me to find another way, a better way, as you may be seeking yourself right now.
Many of us are intimately familiar with where you may be; afraid, overwhelmed, insecure, stressed, angry, depressed, anxious, in despair, hopelessness, confusion, and/or turmoil. And like many others who have survived periods of great difficulty, I know there’s a way out.
You’re not alone. Though it may not look or feel like it, we’re all doing the best we can, and many others are needlessly struggling in silence too. It doesn’t have to be this way. Time is precious. Let’s make the most of it, even if things are hard right now.
Whether your own path has led you down a dark road that on the surface looks like that known by many others- coloured by your own or loved ones’ anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, grief and loss, abuse, trauma, loneliness, existential concerns, career, work, or relationship problems- suffering is universally difficult, no matter what form it takes.
We are all in this together.
I believe that well-being, happiness, peace of mind, and inner freedom is always possible.
Hope is always warranted. Help is always at hand.
Let’s speed up the journey, from powerless to empowered, frightened to fearless, anxious to serene, angry to loving, miserable to joyful, imprisoned to free. You’re bound to get there eventually anyway, so why not save time and get there sooner?
I believe that you have the ability to get through whatever you’re going through right now. I also believe that we all need help to remember and reconnect to that deep well of strength and inner wisdom ever present within us- especially when things get tough.
I know that you can feel better, and that things can become better for you. You matter and the choices you make matter. I offer a safe, supportive hand to walk with, free of judgement. I offer complete confidentiality, compassion, kindness, integrity, and respect.
And the important nitty gritty details?
I’m fully qualified, accredited, experienced, and insured. So you can trust and dive into the process that you’re ready to unfold, and heal the wounds that you’re ready to extract the good from.
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Sydney, a postgraduate in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Metavision Institute, many more hours dedicated to learning a range of different therapeutic modalities and skills, and real-world experience helping people from all walks of life in acute crisis through Lifeline’s free suicide-prevention hotline.
For peace of mind, I’m also fully insured and accredited with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) – the peak national body for Psychotherapists and Counselling professionals. This binds me to continuous professional development, stringent ethical standards, ongoing clinical supervision, and ensures that my training has been rigorous.
Let’s get through this together then.
Now it’s your turn.
Who are you? What’s your story? What are you seeking? Struggling with? What are your hopes and deepest values?
Are you ready to shift things? Break out of and transform old patterns? Ready to try something new and get a better result?
If you’re willing to change your mind, let’s change your world.
