Are you, overwhelmed with feelings of sadness and anxiety? Do you experience intense mood swings and frustration which get the better of you? Are your relationships suffering, worried about the impact on friends, family, work, and career prospects? Make the changes in your life with goal-oriented therapy.
I provide evidence-based brief or longer-term therapy to suit your individual needs and circumstances. My work is goal orientated and focused on helping you to make changes in your life for the better. I will help you to understand how your problems may have developed and how they are maintained. I take a direct and down to earth approach with therapy to help you move forward by revising unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
I have 18 years of clinical experience, including 14 years within the NHS. I started my career as a clinician in 2002, initially working in university and charitable trusts psychotherapy services. In 2006 I went on to pursue my specialist interest in working with anxiety, depression and personality disorders within NHS secondary care services.
During my time within the NHS I have held a senior position in which I have pursued my specialist interest working with personality disorders predominately Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD), for which I have attained specialist post qualification training.
I was the lead clinician for both the Cognitive Analytic Therapy service and the Mentalization-Based Therapy service. I am currently working towards accreditation in Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP).
I have clinical expertise and experience of delivering specialist, evidence-based treatments, and have actively developed my interest in working with people who have had long term problems understanding feelings, managing emotional responses and negotiating interpersonal relationships.
I am an accredited clinical supervisor with the British Psychological Society and Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy. Over the course of my professional career I have supervised and managed both qualified and trainee clinical and counselling psychologists.
