I have over 25 years experience working within mental health services in the NHS. I am a Registered Mental Health Nurse (2003) and I have gained additional training and expertise in several psychological models including CBT, DBT Training, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction/Cognitive Therapy (MBSR/CT) and Compassion Focused Therapy Training. I can adapt these models for individual needs and preference and can combine models if required.
My aim as a CBT therapist is to help clients who may be struggling with life challenges and develop a shared understanding how your difficulties may have developed and are being maintained.
I work in a person centred, compassion based approach, offering a safe space to work collaboratively, to explore & understand your difficulties & help you work towards your set goals and values.
