Kathryn Walters - Consultant Clinical Psychologist
Kathryn is an NHS clinical psychologist in Gwent where she jointly heads a service of psychologists, counsellors and arts therapists working across the lifespan in both mental and physical health.
Kathryn initially wanted to do Law, then Medicine, then Biochemistry. She had an epiphany that Biochem wasn’t for her whilst on a sixth form visit to Birmingham Uni. With at least an hour left on campus before her school was due to leave, she wandered into the Psychology department and became fascinated with the subject, deciding there and then that she wanted to study it at Uni. 31 years later, Kathryn is still fascinated by the subject and feels privileged to work in a job that brings her into direct contact with so many people trying to make changes in their lives.
Kathryn lives in Cardiff with her husband and between one and three of her three children, depending what’s going on in their lives (two are grown up). She used to run but now settles for circuits, cycling and weightlifting.
Kathryn has experience in:
- presentation and communication skills
- staff management
- writing skills
- training and teaching
