I am a compassionate and reflective Psychologist who has experience working with people both in the community and at times of crisis within the acute care setting. I use a person-centred approach in order to assess individual needs, develop a shared understanding of someone’s difficulties and collaboratively construct a treatment plan based on this understanding.
I am able to take a flexible approach, and select from a range of models for example Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), associated 'third-wave' approaches such as Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) or family working. I offer therapy for a range of different problem types including anxiety, depression, panic, OCD, phobias, trauma and personality difficulties. By the end of a piece of therapy, the individual (or family) can expect to have their own Wellness and Recovery Action Plan in order to help maintain their well-being and become their own therapist to maintain progress made in therapy.
I am passionate about recovery and people leading a personally satisfying life in which they feel in control and that they are living life in line with their values. This has been one of my main areas of focus in service development and research.
