I have trained to doctoral level in psychology and in addition have accreditation as a psychotherapist. My qualifications and experience equip me to work with a broad range of clients and concerns such as anxiety, depression, bereavement and relationship difficulties. Post qualifying, I went on to do specialist training in working with couples, brief-term trauma therapy (EMDR) as well as third-wave or most recent developments in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness (MBCT).
