About me

My passion & interest lies in helping people make a difference to their lives. This underpins my work with people in both NHS and private settings. In over 10 years, I have worked with children, adolescents, families and adults as well as older adults from all walks of life. My professional experience includes effective treatment of a range of mental health problems from mild to severe problems including helping people who are unwell and going through a crisis.

What do I Offer?
Brief to medium term psychological therapy for rapid and sustained treatment benefits. In some situations longer term therapy may also be more appropriate.

Approach and orientation
I specialise in state-of-the-art CBT and EMDR, and I also draw on other approaches such as compassion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness. Some of the areas that I provide treatment for include stress, anxiety, mild/moderate/severe forms of depression, anger problems, trauma/post traumatic stress (PTSD), obsessions/compulsions (OCD), phobias, and many others.

Philosophy on counselling and psychotherapy
Two heads are better than one! Listening, talking and interacting in therapy, we can begin to build a therapeutic relationship as our solid foundation. We can both gain a good understanding of your situation and problems, in terms of how they may have arisen, what maintains them and what needs to change. With a good shared understanding of your problems we can set goals for therapy and then develop an effective treatment plan.

In therapy, I am able to draw on a range of expert approaches to assist people to develop more helpful coping strategies and practical skills to address their problems.
