About

I work extensively with suicide ideation, self harm, anxiety, depression, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, amongst a vast range of presenting issues. Every person is unique, therefore my integrative approach is tailored to meet your individual needs. It is very common to experience low mood/anxiety without understanding why, or to feel completely overwhelmed by a simplistic task. This does not mean "I am weak", "I'm not good enough". Exploration will help you identify any possible triggers, implementation of coping strategies will help you manage any symptoms, and a collaborative plan will help you move forward.
I have been very fortunate to gain a wealth of knowledge and experience through working for both public & private sectors. In addition I have 5 years experience working within safeguarding (Vulnerable adults & children) incorporating adverse childhood experiences and attachment theory to develop my knowledge of working from a trauma informed practice.
What to expect from me... I provide a safe, confidential, non judgemental environment, allowing you to speak freely, and express your emotions, whilst applying a combination of Person Centred, CBT and psychodynamic techniques to suit your individual needs.
