About me

I currently work part-time as a Psychotherapist within NHS. I also work freelance for several Employment Support Programmes (EAPs) including BUPA.

As a therapist my work involves a thorough assessment of individuals with respect to all aspects of their physical, emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. I work within the Biopsychosocial Model of health and illness which asserts that behaviors, thoughts and feelings influence a physical state. With respect to this, in all my roles I take into account, via the assessment and treatment process, the psychological and social factors that impact on biological functioning and that also play a role in health and illness. I also take account of childhood development and reflect on Attachment theories to identify patterns of relating which may be rooted in childhood experiences. Ultimately, my role is to help individuals to develop and expand understanding and awareness to their own experiences and patterns of relating so that they can make positive changes in their lives.

I general work within a brief intervention framework to help clients find their own solutions to their problems and share interventions to help with symptoms of Psychological distress such as anxiety, stress and low mood. I also deliver Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) to groups in the NHS, which is a NICE guideline evidence based intervention for Recurring Clinical Depression.

Within my practice I work within clear boundaries within the BACP Ethical Framework, for which I am an Accredited member, and within relevant confidentiality guidelines and within current legislation for Data Protection and Clinical Governance.
