Katrina Steel

The Intentional Therapist

About

Katrina Steel is an Integrated Psychotherapist who is masterful at supporting clients to access what is real and using that knowledge to liberate them from the limiting stories of the mind, bringing them into a consciously connected and intentional relationship with their life, their suffering and themselves.

 

Her vast experience and skillset combine to assist clients to connect to their true selves in the most compassionate and yet dynamic of ways. Katrina engages her clients with focus on cognitive and emotional processes, working to build awareness of the limiting and fearful nature of the the mind to break down behavioural patterns and mind distortions which generate suffering and hold them back from ease, joy and grace.

 

She draws together the nature of your suffering to uncover core cognitive beliefs and behavioural patterns that result in your distress and anguish, generating clarity and therefore creating a new way of relating and being in the world. Katrina uses wisdom, vulnerability, courage and realness to raise awareness and connect people to their true selves, resulting in them living and experiencing life at a deeper and more profound level.

 

Her gift is in the relational experience and within this she brings her authenticity and generosity which shines through in the power of her therapeutic process. There is nothing traditional about Katrina, and that translates to exceptional possibilities for living life with guts and grace.

What My Clients Say

Happy couple

Terry H

A happy life I believe, is about maintaining healthy relationships with the ones we love, through personal growth, communication and understanding.

I was never very good at communicating my needs with my partner for our relationship to flourish. This would result in so much conflict and love being lost between one another. I can never thank Kat enough for everything she has done for me. She gave me a voice, taught me the value of talking things out with my partner no matter how hard or confronting it may be. Furthermore allowing my voice to be heard.

I love my parents very much but as a child I didn't know what a healthy relationship around love and communication really looked like. Unfortunately this played out within my relationships as an adult.

Kat taught me how to deal with my feelings and emotions, and what work I needed to do for myself. Instead of taking on my partners insecurities as if they where my own. This was their responsibility and opportunity to do their work too.

She also shared with me how our partners are mirrors for our own healing and this I could never agree with more once understanding the work I have done with her know.

There is no book on the perfect relationship, as we all come from very different walks of life but with Kats help and guidance you could really set up your very own rules and define your own relationship systems to show yourself, children and partner what a healthy bond with love truly looks like.

Thank you Kat. Words can't express how grateful we are.
