About

As an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients to achieve their goals. These goals may be around managing mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression or improving confidence or self esteem, working through relationship problems and major life changes or simply having the time and space to explore thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and non judgemental space. CBT aims to identify unhelpful thinking patterns linked to past experiences that influence how we feel and how we behave and make sustainable changes, resulting in improved decision making and wellbeing.
I work with all ages and genders and have specific training and experience working with those from the LGBTQ+/GSRD community and young people age 11+. Although I am a CBT therapist - I work using an integrative approach which includes using creative tools and I use a strong evidence base to tailor this to each individual client's needs.
Reaching out for help is not always an easy thing to do. Choosing the right therapist is an important part of therapy and I offer a free telephone consultation with no obligations . I treat every enquiry with sensitivity and compassion and endeavour to create a space that promotes autonomy, connection and growth.
