Dr Kathryn Gaussen
Clinical Psychologist

I’m an experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist, working both in the NHS and independent sector. I work with adults and older adolescents (16years +) to help them manage a wide range of mental health difficulties in order for people to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.


I can provide therapy for those for whom it is their first experience of looking for therapy as well for those who have maybe tried various other therapies/avenues previously. l also adapt therapy to meet people needs, including for people who are neurodivergent. My areas of special interest include Complex Trauma and Borderline Personality Disorder.

I aim to help clients feel supported to explore their difficulties and to discover new ways to view and manage these. I believe it is important to work collaboratively with my clients, therefore I look to work with them using an integrated, tailored, approach to meet their needs with a shared formulation/understanding being central to this.

Understandably approaching therapy may be daunting for many reasons, I seek to provide a safe space where we can discuss any concerns or anxieties you have even prior to starting. I hope this leads to building a safe, trusting, collaborative partnership for therapy.
