Finding a therapist can often be quite a daunting task, as there are so many different psychological models and approaches to choose from. Thank you for browsing over my profile and I will briefly tell you a little bit more about myself. I have over 18 years experience in Mental Health, providing psychological therapy, in a range of contexts, including voluntary, NHS, Higher Educational settings as a CBT trainer and now private practice. My training background enables me to tailor my approach, according to your individual needs or goals in life.
My Training and How I Work:
I trained as an integrative therapist back in 2004, using both psycho-dynamic and person-centered approaches, along with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, where I met Part one of becoming a registered Counselling Psychologist with BPS membership. I also hold full accreditation with the BABCP as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, where therapy follows NICE guidance and commands an evidence-base to treating difficulties with anxiety and depression. I have completed my EMDR training with EMDR Europe, which has become a specialist area for me, as working with people who have experienced traumatic events; however big or small can often lay the foundation in how we relate to others and can significantly impact on our everyday functioning and self- esteem. EMDR is now also recognized by NICE as a recommended therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is becoming more widely recognized as an effective therapy for many other difficulties. I also tend to draw on Compassion -Focused Therapy (CFT) and mindfulness techniques, as often people struggle to overcome their experiences and become self -critical. I hold an enhanced DBS check and abide by the BPS and BABCP code of ethics.
I offer therapy to individuals aged 17 years to people aged over 65+ with a range of difficulties including General Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, work-related stress, Obsessional Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Body Dysmorphia, Depression, Loss, Bereavement, Low Self Esteem and PTSD and Long -Term conditions such as IBS and pain. Often people are unsure of what they are feeling or just feel so overwhelmed, they don't know where to start. Together, we will start to explore this at your pace and come up with a plan together, in how you would like to move forward with your life. If you feel you would like to meet to discuss your needs further and take the next step, then please do contact me.
