I am a Counselling Psychologist, Psychotherapist & Counsellor with over 13 years of experience. I have the privilege to currently work in the NHS and I have experience in a variety of other settings such as the charity and private sectors.
I have a sensitive, warm and collaborative style, and I am highly skilled in assessing and delivering appropriate therapeutic treatment options and interventions in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. I am trained to work in either a short term or long term way depending on the issue.
I work with a range of psychological and emotional health issues which can include depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, trauma, low self-esteem, loss/grief, bereavement, addictions, interpersonal issues, career issues, identity loss, problem sleep, anger, loneliness, confidence and personality disorder among others.
I draw upon a range of different psychological modalities and tailor them to the individual. This will broadly include:
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy – looks to understand patterns in life and the influence of past relationships and histories in the present. In my view, the relationship between therapist and client is key to help bring to life unconscious, unhealthy processes and patterns, allowing you to accept or work on difficulties in the here and now.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – can teach you the link between how you think, what you are doing/not doing and the impact on mood. Practical strategies and skills are taught, learnt and practised facilitating and maintaining change. Alongside this, I may integrate some Mindfulness strategies where I teach and invite you to learn to be present, ground yourself in the here and now and sit with difficult emotions.
Ultimately, I am passionate about people, helping you understand yourself and working towards achieving change in your life. I recognise people are diverse and I welcome and work with a wide range of people from all sexual, gender, religious, ethnic, cultural positions.
