We are trained in a number of therapies, including CBT, CAT, EMDR and DBT .
It is very human to have psychological difficulties at various points in our lives. Difficult things can happen to us leaving us feeling scared and/ or low/ depressed. Society can also make us feel pressurised to look a certain way and we can feel pretty worthless if don't believe that we conform to these societal expectations. All of these can be both frightening and overwhelming, which makes it so important to have a calm, compassionate and skilful therapist to guide you towards recovery.

I tend to use a carefully crafted mix of the following approaches: EMDR, CBT, CFT, CAT, DBT , Systemic Theory, Internal Family Systems and Psychodynamic concepts.
I am passionate about trauma informed practice: making every effort to understand the impact of people’s lived experiences on their daily lives. My approach is based on psychological formulation, to make sense of what a person is experiencing, and then using a range of integrated approaches to help people to make changes. I care about empowering individuals to live the lives they want to live, and take a very human and empathic approach to working with people's distress.

I have doctoral level training in a variety of therapeutic approaches, which means that I am not limited by a specific type of therapy; I draw heavily on psychodynamic approaches, attachment theory, narrative therapy, mindfulness, CBT, and DBT skills.
I have worked in the caring professions for 18 years and for the last 8 years as a Clinical Psychologist. I have now studied, specialised & work exclusively in online therapy. I work with clients, over the age of 18, who are experiencing psychological distress in different ways; be that depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, work problems, or a general accumulation of life stressors. I approach each client as an individual, listen to their story and tailor an intervention based on their personal situation and needs. Through collaborative discussion, we will work toward fresh understanding and new ways of coping.

Counselling/ Psychotherapy: Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing you to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in your attitude, behaviours & overall well-being. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable you to make your own choices, reach your own decisions & go forward with a greater sense of clarity & self-management. Hypnotherapy & mindfulness can be introduced as a type of complementary therapy in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions are made to rid you of emotional blockage. Mindfulness keeps us focused

I have provided therapeutic support to people with various presentations including specializing in: psychosis, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma and LGBTQ+ issues. Across all of these settings and presentations, I often found core underlying themes of feeling anxious, overwhelmed, low, self-critical, stressed, depressed and burned out. Most people struggled to get their minds and bodies in a place of comfort and safety and therefore struggled to “do the work” necessary to recover. Most felt like they had tried everything and were frustrated at the lack of change or difference it made to their lives.

Life is difficult. Every day you face a thousand intangible threats to your mental well-being and self-esteem. Your brain reacts, creating a collection of sensations which we call anxiety. Sometimes you feel hopeless-there's no way out of trouble and you feel yourself becoming more withdrawn, isolated and depressed. Or, perhaps living with the person you love is impossible. Talking things over with family or friends can help. But you may have reasons why that's not appropriate or you need specific specialist help. Then is the time to speak with an impartial, trained, professional, in confidence.
