Dr Kate Mason Bsc (Hons), DClin.Psy, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, HCPC Registered, Member of the British Psychological Society.
I'm a Chartered Clinical Psychologist supporting people experiencing psychological and emotional distress. I have been working within the field of mental health since 2002 with extensive experience in the NHS in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and The Priory Group.
I offer clinical assessment and psychological therapy to children, adolescents and young adults and their families. I pride myself in being able to form a good rapport with my clients, working collaboratively and sensitively adopting a compassionate and creative approach. I have an eclectic approach to my work drawing upon evidence-based models such as Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) & Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as well as offering coaching approaches to help clients find direction and motivation if they are feeling “stuck”. I work in ways that suit each of my clients and ensure they feel relaxed and open to talk. I take my work outdoors where possible and offer Walk & Talk sessions to clients, incorporating nature into my therapy.
My areas of clinical interest lie in depression, self harm and anxiety in adolescents as well as attachment & developmental trauma.
I enjoy teaching and training and offer preventative, psycho-educational programmes for young people to help them learn ways to manage difficult emotions and strengthen resilience in a fun and practical way. As a Mental Health First Aid Instructor with MHFA England I offer accredited courses for both Youth & Adult and I also write bespoke training programmes and offer consultation to business, schools and charities.
I am a UK accredited trainer in PACE by DDP Connects UK.
