I believe that given the right kind of environmental support, people are basically growth-oriented. We want good relationships, meaningful pursuits, to feel understood and seen, and to be safe. Sometimes our pasts or the systems we live within can make it feel impossible to achieve those things. My hope is that by listening to you, trying to understand who you are and why you've made the choices you have, and offering as much insight as I can muster, we may be able to help you get back towards those fundamental human needs. 

What kind of therapist am I?

Katie Rajan-Edge
Integrative Psychotherapist (MBACP)

I am an integrative psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy. In brief this means that I trained in a wide range of therapeutic methods and theories, and that I try to think about each client and each problem from several points of view.

What are my areas of expertise?

I've tended to work with a lot of people experiencing a sense of being lost in life, either because they’ve arrived somewhere without quite knowing how they got there, or because they don’t know where to go next. In mid-life it can suddenly occur to us that we’ve lost sight of ourselves. After two decades of friends, career, perhaps establishing a family, it’s not uncommon to feel that life has begun to happen to us, rather than being something we’re actively choosing. 

 

Sometimes this is a consequence of working in a high-pressure environment over a prolonged period. Sometimes it’s a consequence of sacrificing parts of oneself while raising children. Sometimes it’s because a bereavement or other loss has called into question the fundamental structures of our lives. Whatever the reason, it’s a privilege to be asked to sit with people while they find their way back to themselves. 

 

Specific areas of interest include the pressure of being part of a high-achieving system (workplace, family or culture), parenthood and the particular challenges it brings, disordered eating of all types, addictive or self-destructive coping mechanisms, and creative burnout.
