“We felt much better equipped to help our students after working with Dr Donoghue” Sixth form college, Bristol
Dr Kate Donoghue, has extensive experience of supporting a wide range of professionals. She has over 25 years’ experience of working with children, young people and parents within an NHS-based Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). She has also undertaken CBT research projects under the supervision of internationally renowned Child Clinical Psychologists. She applies this wealth of experience and knowledge in helping other professionals support children, adolescents and young adults in making positive and lasting changes.
“We contacted Kate about one of our students who was really struggling with anxiety and panic symptoms. The consultation enabled us as a school to have a more helpful understanding of the student’s difficulties and to ultimately support her in gradually building up her attendance. Eventually, she was able to fully engage in school life and to sit all of her GCSE exams, something that we would never imagined would have been possible” - Secondary School, Bath
Kate also provides group and individual CBT supervision to CAMHS mental health professionals and accredited and trainee CBT therapists. For almost 10 years, she taught and provided supervision on the University of Reading CBT Diploma Course.
“I really believe that I couldn’t have got this far without Kate’s amazing supervision” - Current CBT Trainee on the Reading CBT Diploma Course
