About me

I have extensive experience of using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with a wide range of presenting problems. I am Accredited with the British Association for Cognitive & Behavioural Psychotherapies (BABCP) and have over 10 years post qualification experience, with much of my clinical work taking place within an NHS setting.

I am also trained in using Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). This approach incorporates CBT techniques, Mindfulness based interventions and concepts from various schools of psychology such as evolutionary, developmental, social, and Buddhist psychology. The approach also has a strong focus on neuroscientfic concepts relevant to helping us understand how to regulate our emotions, and facilitate the development of a more compassionate way of interacting with ourselves and others.

I have a strong interest in the mind and body connection, and am currently also training in yoga as a therapeutic modality to treating various forms of anxiety and depression.

As well as the above I will also draw on approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Person-centered psychotherapy. I am integrative in my approach and will tailor therapy to meet the individual needs of the client.

I aim to provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore and reflect upon thoughts and feelings, and to facilitate the change process in a way that feels collaborative, respectful and in line with the goals of the individuals that I work with.

Mixed anxiety and depression
