Kate is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Art Therapist. Kate is a Senior Social Worker and has been working in the field of health for 8 years. Kate has a Masters in Mental Health, majoring in Art Therapy and has been working in the Mater Young Adult service establishing an Art Therapy service, providing therapeutic support to young adults using an Art Therapy and social work framework.

Kate has experience in working across most chronic and acute health conditions, paediatric oncology and mental health. Kate sees adolescents, young adults, couples and families. She also provides clinical supervision to other health professionals. In all the work Kate does, she strongly focuses on the patient’s needs, tailoring her practice to meet the needs of the client and moving at the pace that the client sets. It is very much a collaborative process, and one that cannot be rushed.

It can be daunting looking for a counsellor however from time to time, we all need a little extra support, from someone outside our usual network. In this unique collaboration, we can find meaning in what is going on for you, helping to reach your goals and find a new ‘wholeness’ in your life.
