Kate Ibbotson Neurodivergent Psychotherapist

A Therapy Mind - Psychotherapy & Coaching

Specialising in ADHD / AuDHD neurotypes

  • Would you like to understand, accept & protect yourself better? As well as interrupt patterns that harm you?

  • Is it important that your therapist is committed to connecting with you – human to human. Plus, views you as an equal & an individual?

  • Is it time to deprioritise external expectations & stereotypical norms? Prioritise self compassion? Gain awareness of what regulates & dysregulates you?

  • Do you need to define & enhance your boundaries? Build resilience to improve your emotional & mental capacity?

  • Would you like medium term or long-term, in-depth therapy and a strong therapeutic relationship?

I practice Transactional analysis (TA) in both a therapeutic and a coaching way. It is a talking therapy that is relational, psychoanalytical but also practical and empowering. 

TA can be used to explore your identity, coping mechanisms, core beliefs, personality, experiences and the many facets of your psyche. 

It can help you find safety if you have experienced trauma, or are feeling lost or confused. 

Also, Transactional Analysis is a great choice if you have had a specific challenge or setback but also want to work on the wider picture.

You’re not broken so you don’t need to be ‘fixed’ or even change at all.

Instead, I want help you find your way back to yourself. Our client / therapist relationship is of vital importance and if we agree to work together, I will be fully committed and invested in you and your journey.

I listen to your story with empathy and kindness but also compassionately challenge any damaging core beliefs. Sometimes, I may sit alongside you in the dark and at other times help you process the past or illuminate your way forward. Always aiming to help you gain acceptance of yourself and awareness of what you need.


I use a range of psychotherapeutic techniques to help you on the journey to understanding yourself better. Whilst also aiming to equip you with tools that are effective, so you can decide to use them outside of your therapy sessions. They can help you keep safe and grounded, strengthen your connection with yourself and improve your communication and relationships.

As you become more aware of yourself, you may gain a clearer idea of your identity and become more self-compassionate. Gradually, you may feel more confident when dealing with life challenges and have a greater sense of regulation and autonomy over your destiny.

After my parents both suffered from some tragic events recently, I was in a state of flux and cloaked in depression and dysregulation. I'm so thankful therapists such as Kate exist.
