I have over 20 years experience working in mental health in both primary and secondary care services within various NHS settings.
In addition to private practise, I also work in a local Improving Access to Psychological Therapy service within the NHS (IAPT).
I am a fully accredited CBT therapist with the BABCP, the lead organisation for CBT in the UK and have many years of experience in this field.
I also strive to maintain and keep up to date with required professional standards and knowledge and feel particularly skillful in developing trusting, therapeutic relationships with clients.
I am also a qualified EMDR Practitioner and use this particular form of therapy, as specified in the NICE guidelines, to treat trauma related difficulties.
I am based in Bramley, Rotherham which is conveniently only 5 minutes from the M18 and M1 and is ideally placed to see clients from anywhere in Yorkshire.
