I have provided emotional and therapeutic support in NHS and charity organisations for over a decade and am trained in a range of therapies including psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy. In order to meet individual need and difficulties, I also draw upon wider psychological theory and research, often integrating different therapeutic approaches as a result.
Therapy is a deeply personal process which means that it is important to find a therapist who you feel able to work with. For this reason, we would meet for an initial session to discuss what you are looking for from therapy and to think about how we might work together. We may then agree a time-limited therapy (usually 6-12 sessions) or decide to work in a more open-ended way, meeting regularly for a year or more.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement and relationship issues. My doctoral research is in the field of appearance related distress, specifically in relation to alopecia, and I also have experience of working in an eating disorder service. Having worked for many years in a specialist sexual assault support service, I have particular experience of working with people in relation to interpersonal trauma, including recent sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse.
For my Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at The University of the West of England I have completed training in a range of therapies including psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy as well as training in provision of individual and group supervision. I am currently writing up my doctoral research project.
