About

Like most psychologists I use different approaches - narrative therapy, family systems, mindfulness, CBT. My main focus is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). So, some of what I do might seem familiar and other techniques may be new to you. Whatever the case, it is important that clients experience therapy as transparent - I am always ready to discuss what we are doing, why we are doing it and what the expected outcome is. The idea is to provide clients with an accepting and non-judgmental environment so they can talk honestly and express difficult emotions.
I find EMDR useful to help clients become desensitised to the invalidating, overwhelming or traumatic experiences that left them with negative views of themselves or their world such as: "I'm not safe", "I am worthless", or "I am a failure". Then we start working on building the skills they need to deal with future challenges - in line with their own values.
Taking the risk be vulnerable and work on yourself is no mean feat. Most clients will find this hard, especially if they are new to therapy. Feel free to message me and we can discuss any concerns you might have about therapy or talk about the goals you want to work towards. Text and email is best.
