Approach and orientation

My initial training was as an Integrative Psychotherapist, and I have subsequently trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Mindfulness. Drawing on my years of experience I work with each individual client to plan a course of therapy to meet their unique individual needs.

Philosophy on counselling and psychotherapy

While everyone experiences ups and downs in life, sometimes people reach a point where they feel overwhelmed, stressed or stuck, and cannot see a way forward, and this is when therapy can help. Counselling and Psychotherapy allow people space to reflect, to develop self-understanding and self-confidence and ultimately help people to lead freer, happier and more fulfilling lives.

As every person is unique my approach varies depending on the needs of each individual. For some people, simply having the space to talk and reflect within the supportive and confidential therapeutic relationship is what they need. While other people also find that, learning strategies from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), or the practice of Mindfulness, or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can be very helpful. For those who come with issues stemming from past traumatic or distressing events I find that Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) is a highly effective technique for resolving their symptoms.

If you have any more queries about the process please do not hesitate to contact me.
