I have really valued Katherine as clinical supervisor in setting up and running my private art therapy practice. She is genuine and warm natured and full of ideas to assist me to find perspective when I have felt overwhelmed or have difficulties to move beyond. Katherine created a safe, supportive space for me despite our sessions being online for the most part. Her reassurance and ability to provide a nurturing yet insightful art activity was invaluable. - Art Therapist
