Hi, I'm Ian and I believe two things: you don't need to suffer in silence, and anxiety, low mood and trauma don't have to ruin your life.
Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) we can work together to overcome problems and get back to living the life you want to live.
Over the last 10 years I've worked with a wide range of people whose experiences have created particular challenges for their mental health, including; police officers, ex-armed forces personnel, teachers, nurses, barristers and people with long term health conditions.
I've worked with survivors who have experienced a wide range of traumatic events, including; being taken hostage, domestic abuse, road traffic accidents, traumatic bereavement, terrorist incidents, sexual abuse/assault and armed conflict.
This diversity of experience has helped me understand the challenges people face, in their private lives, at work and and following distressing incidents where their life may have been at risk.
Prior to training as a CBT Therapist in 2010, I spent the first 15 years of my working life in a range of sectors, including legal services, the civil service and retail. As a result, I have broad life experience and my approach to therapy is empathic, pragmatic, grounded in the real world and non-judgmental.
