I have completed training as both a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, along with completed specialist post qualification training in CAT (Cognitive Analytic Therapy) & and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing). CAT is an integrative therapy, including integrating CBT and psychoanalytic approaches. EMDR is a therapy which was developed to help people deal with the symptoms and emotional distress which are associated with traumatic or disturbing life experiences.
I have worked in the field of adult mental health for almost 30 years. I consider that my training & experience allow me to adopt and integrate different approaches in a way that may best suit the needs of each individual. Furthermore, I recognise the therapeutic relationship as an essential element of therapy, creating a safe space where therapist and client can work collaboratively and with compassion to gain an understanding of matters and work to achieve change.
I am happy to offer a free 20 minute phone consultation as an opportunity to discuss what you are hoping to gain from therapy and whether my approach may be helpful to you.
