My passion & interest lies in helping people make a difference to their lives. This underpins my work with people in both NHS and private settings. In over 10 years, I have worked with children, adolescents, families and adults as well as older adults from all walks of life. My professional experience includes effective treatment of a range of mental health problems from mild to severe problems including acutely unwell people in crisis.

What do I Offer?
Brief to medium term psychological therapy for rapid and sustained treatment benefits for adults and adolescents age 12 and up. In some situations longer term therapy may also be more appropriate.

Approach and orientation
I specialise in state-of-the-art CBT and EMDR, and I also draw on other approaches such as compassion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness. Some of the areas that I provide treatment for include stress, anxiety, mild/moderate/severe forms of depression, anger problems, trauma/post traumatic stress (PTSD), obsessions/compulsions (OCD), phobias, and many others.

Philosophy on counselling and psychotherapy
Two heads are better than one! Listening, talking and interacting in therapy, we can begin to build a therapeutic relationship as our solid foundation. We can both gain a good understanding of your situation and problems, in terms of how they may have arisen, what maintains them and what needs to change. With a good shared understanding of your problems we can set goals for therapy and then develop an effective treatment plan. In therapy, I am able to draw on a range of expert approaches to assist people to develop more helpful coping strategies and practical skills to address their problems.
