Dr Katy Stevens, Clinical Psychologist

Katy is a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years’ experience working within the NHS and private sector. Katy has extensive specialist experience of working with people who have experienced recent and historic traumatic events and may be struggling with the effects of these traumas on their day to day lives.

Katy is also experienced in working with neurodivergence, providing autism and ADHD assessments for adolescents and adults, supporting individuals to explore their unique profile and build an understanding of their strengths, difficulties and future support needs.

 Katy approaches her role as a clinical psychologist with empathy, warmth and acceptance, working collaboratively with clients to support them to develop an understanding of their own personal experiences to support a path forward that allows them to live life in line with their values. With a kind curiosity, Katy focuses on supporting clients to feel comfortable and heard, facilitating a positive and affirmative journey. Katy has specialist experience of working within a compassion focused framework and brings this model and its values to her work, offering a compassionate space for clients to explore their experiences.

Katy uses a variety of therapeutic models within her work including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement De-sensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness. She works together with clients to find a model that suits them, integrating models where appropriate to tailor therapy to their own personal goals.
