Kathryn Morris-Roberts, PhD

This website offers a flavour of the areas I currently work in: psychotherapy, clinical supervision, bespoke groups/workshops and art. 

 

Prior to becoming a Psychotherapist I loved Geography and developed an interest in particular in Feminist Human Geography.  I received a PhD through conducting an ethnography of girls' friendship group's at school focusing in particular on constructions of gender and sexuality.  Since then I have continued to combine an interest in praxis by being involved in teaching/training/writing.  The fields of Geography and Gestalt Psychotherapy are not that dissimilar as they are both interested in how we as humans are impacted by and impact the space around us at multiple levels; from the close-in embodied experience to the global level of the environment and all the layers in-between.   

Since becoming a Psychotherapist I have worked for a variety of agencies including a women's trauma service offering long-term depth Psychotherapy for young women aged 16-24; youth counselling; and student and staff counselling services at Universities.  I offer academic consultancy, marking and examining which supports me to stay up to date with current research and practice in psychotherapy and allied fields.  I also offer bespoke workshops around themes of embodied creativity & 'Being Outdoors'.  A combination of art, nature, movement and meditation practice supports me to stay connected in everyday life.  Please explore my website and get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect of my work further.
