type of services:
Catherine Platts holds a BSc.(Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Middlesex University, a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and is currently completing a Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy with Cork Institute of Technology. She is also trained in SafeTalk and ASIST training for the awareness and prevention of suicide. She is a fully accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Catherine works from a humanistic and integrative person-centred approach, tailoring the therapy to each individual using different therapeutic frameworks based on the client's needs. She believes in the importance of providing a warm, non-judgemental space for the client to share, work through and process the things they feel are holding them back from living a full, happy life. She integrates a variety of approaches into her practice, including Internal Family Systems, Transactional Analysis, CBT, Attachment Theory, Mindfulness and a trauma-informed approach. Catherine uses her skills and training to work with clients to identify unhelpful patterns and on how to break negative cycles. She sees the relationship as fundamental to the work, in that it offers a unique space to explore without judgement what the client truly feels and wants from their life.
She works with individuals over 18 years of age and is available for both short-term solution-focused therapy, as well as longer-term psychotherapy.
