About Dr Kate Jackson

kate

I am a Clinical Psychologist providing services in English to families and individuals in Copenhagen.

I completed my training in Australia – my home country. I hold a Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) and a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I maintain my registration with the Psychology Board of Australia, and am also a member of the Danish Psychological Association. I regularly attend international training workshops to learn new skills and treatment approaches, and I keep up to date with the latest research presented in scientific journals. You can read more about my training and qualifications here.

I have worked in private practice in Australia, Bangladesh and now Copenhagen, and have experience working with children, families and individuals from many different cultural backgrounds. My approach is scientifically based. I combine different treatment approaches, to suit the needs and preferences of an individual client, including Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Systemic Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), but I specialise in providing Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). CBT is one of the most widely researched and evidence-based treatment methods in psychotherapy, and specific CBT interventions have been developed to treat most psychological difficulties (e.g. PTSD, depression, social anxiety, OCD, specific phobia, panic attacks, eating disorders and substance abuse) and there are also CBT techniques which are helpful across many presenting issues (e.g. cognitive restructuring, relaxation training, behavioural experiments, and behaviour chain analysis). I also have a particular interest in the behavioural (non-drug) treatment of insomnia and sleep difficulties in adults, children and infants.
