I offer specialist assessment and psychological therapy for adults who experience a range of difficulties. I use an integrated approach to therapy, enabling a flexible and tailored approach for short, medium or long-term therapy.
I offer evidence based therapeutic interventions and I have completed post-doctoral training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Attachment Focussed Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (AF-EMDR), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) techniques.
