My name is Caitlin Blythin and I am a systemic and family psychotherapist.
It is difficult to put down in a brief introduction such as this, who I am and how I work in therapy with my clients, as each person I see has different needs and experiences. This idea forms the basis of my systemic approach to therapy, which focuses on how people and the difficulties they face are affected by and connected to the world and people around them.
I work with whole families, couples, children and young people, or individuals, and have experience of working with a range of issues. I have experience of working in hospital settings supporting people with mental health diagnoses such as ASD, Bi-polar, Psychosis; providing therapy in an out-patient service for difficulties such as self-harm, eating issues, relationship difficulties and family breakdown, and work independently with those who self-refer for help in areas such as bereavement, anxiety, depression and stress.
It is hard to list all of the areas with which I can offer therapy, as I would say my main specialism is simply people (although in my experience people are far from simple!), and I would encourage anyone who is considering therapy to contact me and discuss how I might be able to help them with their particular unique set of needs.
I like to work collaboratively with my clients, finding the best possible way of working through whatever the issue is which has brought them into therapy, and relish the challenge of adapting to each different family I meet and finding a way forward together.
I qualified as a Systemic and Family therapist in 2012 and am a registered member of the Association of Family Therapy. I hold a DBS check and am fully insured.
I have a fee scale which is related to a client’s income to enable families from all walks of life to access the help they need and this can be sent out to you following an initial enquiry.
There is no obligation to sign up for a certain number of sessions and this can be negotiated and reviewed throughout the process of working together.
I look forward to hearing from you.
