‘Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Mary Oliver


Life can be hard. But I also believe that being alive is a privilege and I enjoy working with individuals and groups to make the most of this amazing opportunity. 

Acknowledging that you might benefit from speaking with a psychologist can be difficult so well done on getting this far and thank you for visiting my website. Please have a look around to get a sense of what you could expect in working with me.
My name is Dr Joanna Cates and I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (reg.no. PYL37239). To find out more about me and my particular areas of clinical interest, please visit my about me page. To find out more about the kinds of therapy I use please visit the psychological therapy page.

Finding the right psychologist or therapist can be a daunting task and it’s important that the fit is right. I therefore I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation if you are seriously considering individual psychological therapy. If I feel I don’t have the experience or specialist knowledge for your particular difficulties I may be able to recommend someone with a skillset more suited to you. 

If you have any questions or would like to arrange an appointment please email me at drjoannacates@protonmail.com.
