- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I have over 8 years of experience in Psychological Therapies and Counselling and I currently work as a Senior Clinician and Clinical Supervisor for a psychology service providing CBT therapy for GP referrals. Previously I have worked in different mental health settings for the NHS, offering both face-to-face therapy and groups sessions, as well as hospital work providing therapy for clients with chronic physical pain.
The issues I commonly work with include depression, anxiety, relationship problems, panic, phobias, grief, chronic physical pain as well as cultural issues. I have a special interest in social anxiety and PTSD and I have completed my training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a form of psychotherapy for overcoming trauma.
I work with individuals aged 16 and over and I have an integrative style in my approach. I work in a way that is flexible according to my client’s needs, as I feel that the therapeutic relationship is the main vehicle to change.
As I am a chartered psychologist with the BSP, and also accredited as therapist with the BABCP, clients can be assured as to the quality of my training and my commitment to ethical conduct.
