About

I work with people experiencing emotional and psychological difficulties. I have 20yrs+ clinical experience in the NHS & private settings. I work part-time providing Expert opinion in family and criminal proceedings. My training is in evidence-based psychological therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I am able to integrate these models to embody a compassionate approach that is tailored to the individual. My specialist interest is in Schema Therapy, which is an integrative therapy that aims to treat personality & mental health concerns that do not always respond to other treatments.
Schema therapy aims to address self-defeating patterns that we keep repeating throughout our lives, which contribute to problematic coping/behaviours such as, fear of abandonment, mistrust, over-dependence, poor self-control, impaired performance, perfectionism, approval seeking-to name a few. Do any of these cause you problems or with family/friends/work?
If yes, Schema Therapy is recommended for you as it can teach you how to ensure your emotional needs are met in a healthy way that doesn't cause distress. If you have any questions, please email me in the first instance, or call to book an appointment. During your 1st appointment, we would agree the approach that could best address your presenting issue/s.
