I am experienced in working as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, with both adults and children with a variety of mental health conditions.
Prior to becoming an Integral Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I spent many years as a Registered Nurse working within the NHS with people with learning disabilities (RNLD). I worked with a client group with autism, sensory needs, sexualised behaviour and severe difficult to manage behaviours.
My personal interests are that I love nature, I am a vegetarian, and an animal lover. I live with my dog and 3 cats. I am a strong advocate of mindful based practice. I consider that I have strong ethical and spiritual principles.
Areas of interest
Areas of interest include depression; anxiety; PTSD; social anxiety; other specific phobias (i.e. agoraphobia, vomit phobia, needle phobia, spider phobia, snake phobia); bi-polar disorder; and OCD.
I also work with people specifically around other issues including; self-esteem; addiction; anger management; relationships; self-harm; bereavement; resilience; weight; pain and sleep problems.
I have an interest in Compassion Based Therapy and Mindfulness. I have also completed extensive training in Attachment based disorders.
I supervise Trainee and Qualified Play Therapists (via PRUK) and play therapy is a strong area of interest for me.
I with individuals, young people over age 13, and couples.
