Kathryn Morris-Roberts: artist, (equine) psychotherapist, PhD
This website attempts to provide a flavour of the areas I currently work in: embodied creativity; psychotherapy, equine psychotherapy and bespoke groups/workshops.
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 a interest in praxis by being involved in teaching/training/writing as well as sexual and mental health practice and I now work as an accredited Gestalt Psychotherapist and Equine Assisted Psychotherapist. 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 also offer academic consultancy, marking and examining for a number of Psychotherapy training institutes and independently offer workshops around themes of embodied creativity, 'Being Outdoors' and Embodied Here and Now awareness. Painting and nature supports me to connect. Please explore my website and get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect of my work further.
