Catherine Knibbs

Catherine Knibbs is a child trauma therapist, clinical supervisor and is accredited and registered with BACP and UKCP. She is CEO and Director of PEER Support Yorkshire CIC and is the only Cyber-trauma researcher, consultant and public speaker in the United Kingdom. Catherine regularly writes and presents on this topic to counsellors, professionals and parents. Cyber-trauma is a theoretical integration of child psychotherapy, psychobiology and neuroscience that takes account of the myriad of interactions with cyberspace and the traumas that can result with and from this medium. Catherine has interests in the phenomena of cyber related compassion as an antithesis to cybertrauma such as the phenomena of cyberbullying. Perhaps there is an app for that and it exists in the real world rather than the corporeal? Catherine believes that children have the answer for this through education and technology.
