About

I am a CBT Psychotherapist and have worked in the field of mental health for the past twenty years. I am clinical trained to work with: Depression, Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Specific/Social Phobia, OCD, GAD, PTSD (both civilian and military), Complex PTSD, Trauma, Critical Incident Debriefing, Sexual Health, Addiction, Grief, Suicide, Self-esteem, Anger, Isolation, and Stress. I also offer 'Living with PTSD' and "Looking After Your Mental Health" workshops to groups. My main focus in all therapeutic settings is to pass my knowledge and skills to the client so they can become empower and take back control of their lives.
For many people therapy can be daunting, and they often struggle to make that initial consultation, this is normal, you are not alone. I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which involves; goal setting, problem solving, thinking/doing, challenging and changing your negative automatic thought, psycho-education and relapse prevention.
I offer a safe confidential space with genuine compassion and empathy. I understand how difficult it can be to ask for help but it the first step to reclaiming your life. Therapy is not a sign you are broken or need fixed. It’s a no-judgemental space were you can breath, step back from the problem and learn the skills to overcome it.
