I have a doctorate level of qualification in clinical psychology and have worked in mental health related settings for 10 years. I have specialised in adult mental health by working in GP settings, private practice, and both private and public mental health units.
In private practice I have focussed on the needs of business people and the stresses they face at work and the challenges this creates for their private and family lives. I have worked with CEOs, TV producers, computer programmers, lawyers, doctors, and many other professions and have a solid sense of the issues they face and how best to assist.
I believe that the best place to begin is to collaboratively determine the nature of the current issues. Without an in-depth understanding of the origin and maintainence of the issues people are seeking assistance with, it is very difficult to move forward constructively. From there I offer an individualised approach based on the most relevant evidence-based methods. My general therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), however, I favour an integrated approach drawing from psychodynamic, systemic, mindfulness, and schema therapies.
I believe that no matter how complex one's situation may appear that often a simple approach of carefully selected strategies can lead to rapid and lasting benefits.
