Ms Katharine Cook


Family Psychology Practice

Informed by attachment theory, I have specialised in the areas of trauma, separations, anxiety, grief, child behaviour, adolescent issues, perinatal depression and parenting issues. I work with children, adolescents and adults and believe that small changes, new ideas or a change of perspective can sometimes be the difference that people need.
