Kate Hall

I trained at Tavistock Relationships and work as a psychodynamic therapist with both individuals and couples, providing both short-term and long-term therapy.

My approach is empathic and sensitive, and I offer clients a safe and non-judgemental space to explore anxieties and concerns. You might seek help for a specific issue, such as the loss of a loved one, the ending of a relationship, have feelings of anxiety or low mood at work, or struggle to create boundaries for yourself between your work and personal life.

For couples, you may be seeking help for a specific issue, such as a life transition whether that’s moving in together, becoming parents, retiring, bereavement, or facing illness. You might be struggling to communicate with your partner about your needs, feeling lonely or anxious within your relationship, or there might have been infidelity within the relationship.

My approach is psychodynamic, meaning that our thoughts and feelings in the present are explored in the context of looking at past relationships and early experiences. Making these links can bring a greater understanding of where our patterns of behaviour and beliefs come from. It can also offer the possibility of lasting change in how you see yourself and relate to others.

I have a special interest in supporting those dealing with bereavement and grief and I also work at The Harbour, a charity that offers counselling for people facing death, affected by a life-threatening illness and bereavement.

I worked as a family lawyer for over a decade, both as an employed solicitor and then as a consultant. During my time as a lawyer, I also trained as a family mediator and set up my own private practice. I am passionate about supporting lawyers therapeutically, whether it’s about exploring feelings of unfulfillment, managing stress more effectively, or trying to navigate an event or transition in your personal life alongside the demands of being a lawyer.

 

My work is clinically supervised and confidential.
