Dr Catrin Williams

Forensic Psychologist - Director 

My name is Catrin (you can call me Cat) and I’m an experienced HCPC and BPS registered Forensic Psychologist. Most of my expertise and focus is around trauma, mental health difficulties, forensic needs and risk. I work with people who have been struggling for a long time, and work effectively with people who feel ‘stuck’.   


My experience 

I am currently working for a forensic service that focuses on supporting people with developmental trauma and long-term difficulties that continue to affect their lives. 

Firstly, I work with people who have experienced trauma, either long-term (i.e., trauma that lasts for a long time) or short-term (i.e., one significant traumatic experience). Events such as this can lead to a range of mental health difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, panic and psychosis. They can also lead to a range of coping behaviours or personality difficulties that are unhelpful in life, such as self-harm and suicidal thoughts, substance use, relationship struggles, and so on. My expertise is around helping someone understand where their behaviour and mental health difficulties are stemming from, so then we can work on changing them and supporting them to develop a healthier life. 

I also work with difficulties that have the potential to become more risky, or that have the potential to cause harm (to self or others). This might look like difficulties in managing emotion and/or anger, aggression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, intrusive thoughts that cause distress (e.g., violent or sexual).

My name is Lianne and I am a Chartered and Registered Psychologist and a Qualified EMDR Therapist. I have a broad range of experience in helping individuals improve their mental health and well-being. 


I am committed to providing a supportive and empathetic environment where you can feel heard, understood, and empowered to make positive changes in your life.  Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or any other mental health concern, I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts and emotions.


My approach to therapy is collaborative and client

I am trained in various therapeutic modalities, including EMDR Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I integrate these techniques to create a personalised treatment plan that addresses your specific challenges and helps you build resilience and emotional well-being.
