The Team

Katrina Hinkley

Katrina Hinkley
Managing Director

Katrina is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist (HCPC registered) and the Managing Director of Connect Psychotherapy Practice. She set up Connect in 2004 and soon realised there was a demand for a professional referral service for people who needed better access to psychological services.

A career in Information Management in the finance sector took Katrina to New York. It was there that Katrina changed paths and obtained her PHD in Clinical Psychology from New York University in 1995. She then worked as a clinical psychologist for over ten years in the NHS before setting up in private practice.

Katrina’s experience includes working with people with severe and enduring mental health problems both in New York City and the UK’s NHS. She also became Clinical Lead for the Pain Management programme at The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath.

As Managing Director of Connect, Katrina case manages each referral and undertakes regular reviews of Connect′s network of practitioners. She brings her extensive clinical experience to her role, providing invaluable support both to her practitioners and clients.
