Dr Kathryn Watson
MBBS BSc PhD
Hello! I'm Kathryn and welcome to my illustrated mind!
I'm a doctor, researcher and artist and I use autobiographical storytelling, in the form of illustration, to describe my experiences of mental illness and my journey through (schema) therapy.
My artworks focus on experiences resulting from adverse childhood experiences and trauma, and together they form an evolving collection entitled ‘my illustrated mind’.
By sharing my story and illustrations, I hope to improve understanding and change perceptions of mental illness, help others gain insights into their own internal power struggles and shed a light on the process of emotional healing.
I also hope to champion the use of creativity, particularly in the form of visual art, as a tool for communication and emotional regulation.
