WORKING WITH ME
I am able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches in my assessments and treatment sessions. The initial sessions are an opportunity for us to develop a shared understanding of your difficulties and we develop a formulation which guides the plan for treatment. We will talk through the therapy options and which might be most suitable for you. I am able to offer Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive-Analytic Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy. These are well-established therapies which are found in NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines. My aim is to offer therapies that reduce distress, improve your psychological well-being and help you maintain the gains after the therapy has ended.
