Katherine Theodor is a Registered Psychologist with a Masters of Counselling, (B. Psych (Hons), M. Couns), and works as a Counsellor/Project Officer at STARTTS. Katherine is dedicated to trauma-focused and attachment-oriented psychotherapy, restoring dignity and bearing witness to an individual’s pathway to post-traumatic growth and healing. Drawing from a range of modalities, her belief is that the client-therapist relationship is ultimately the predictor of positive therapeutic outcomes.
Her interest in trauma work stems from her role treating survivors of torture and refugee trauma at STARTTS since 2014, and previous work roles with chronic and complex trauma client groups such as victims of crime, domestic violence, systemic homelessness and substance dependence. She has also provided casual lecturing to Masters of Counselling students specialising in trauma, and mental health training for medics in Burma and Thailand. Katherine is also in the process of becoming a Board-Approved Supervisor.
Katherine Theodor presented at a STARTTS Clinical Master Class in May 2021 called ‘Utilising Remote Technology in Managing Self-Harm and Suicidality with Refugees and Asylum Seekers’. The slides and presentation recording can be found on the Clinical Master Class page via the link below.
