As a Practitioner Psychologist and Chartered Psychologist, I offer psychological therapy for a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.
I describe myself as integrative and work within cognitive-behavioural, humanistic, psychodynamic, EMDR and systemic approaches and frameworks. Having experience of different therapy models, I aim to provide the therapy that can best suit your needs. I describe my main way of working as relational as clients explore the impact of unhelpful ways of thinking on their feelings and behaviour, within an empathic relationship with the therapist. In this supportive context, clients are able to challenge their thinking and develop more adaptive ways of being.
