I have been working as a CBT Therapist since 2004. Prior to that I had worked in broadcasting and then trained in stress management. So I am at home working with work-related stress and employees in high pressure and perfectionistic environments. I am also experienced in dealing with other anxiety disorders, low mood and self-esteem issues. I am trained and have been accredited in EMDR, which is recommended by the NICE guidelines for post-traumatic problems. I am therefore also very experienced with working with trauma and difficult memories. I am also trained in Schema Therapy which deals with more complex problems.
