About

I have worked alongside people of all ages, from a variety of backgrounds, experiencing a broad range of mental health difficulties. These include depression, anxiety, social anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, workplace stress, attachment and relationship difficulties. I take an eclectic approach to therapy, drawing on multiple psychological theories (e.g. CBT, ACT, CFT, CAT, psycho-dynamic approaches) to build an individualised and holistic approach, empowering each individual to embark on recovery and achieve their therapeutic goals.
I believe in taking a genuine empathic and non-judgmental approach to others, which contributes to the building of positive, trusting relationships that are central to therapy. I also believe each person, and their difficulties, deserves a psychological approach tailored to their own, personal experience and preferences.
I also believe joy, fun and laughter to be fantastic remedies for distress, encouraging those I work with to inject this back into their lives! As a practising Buddhist, I also enjoys drawing on relaxation, meditation, imagery and mindfulness techniques in therapy, where appropriate.
