Life In Mind – Psychology Practice
Emotional Health & Well-Being
Dr Katie Howells BSc (Hons), DPsychol
I am a fully qualified Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 18 years experience of working in the UK and overseas both in private practice and in other organisations. I continue to work in the NHS alongside my private work. I am registered with both the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
I work with individuals, families & couples experiencing a wide range of social, emotional, behavioural, learning & relationship difficulties affecting mental health & wellbeing. Like many psychologists, the work I do brings together aspects of different therapies e.g. Systemic Family Therapy, Positive Behavioural Support, CBT & Mindfulness in ways which best meet each individual person’s differences & needs. My work however is most influenced by Narrative Therapy which places a particular emphasis on what we value and how we have come to understand our experiences.
Over the years I have developed a number or areas of interest. This includes women’s emotional health, as well as, working with families where a child has autism, learning or developmental disabilities. Having worked in Singapore for 10 years with the large multinational expat community there, I am also very familiar with working with men & women from many different countries & cultures.
In my experience we seek help when a problem, whatever that might be, has become such that it is stopping us from feeling how we want to feel, doing what we want to do or being who we want to be. In my work I place a great deal of emphasis on creating a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship where difficult experiences and emotions can be talked about.
