Hello!  My name is Kathryn.  I am a counsellor in South Grafton, located in the beautiful Clarence Valley (North Coast, NSW), and I am the founder of Katalyst Counselling.

As a counsellor, my aim is to provide you with:

I have a genuine desire to provide a counselling experience that will be a (K)catalyst for change. It is my hope that we can work together to identify your strengths, and empower and equip you to use those strengths to achieve your goals.
