I am a Counselling Psychologist and Cognitive Analytic Therapist. I have years of experience working with adults presenting with a variety of difficulties across a wide spectrum of severity. I can provide psychological assessment and therapy for anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, work-related stress, trauma, mood fluctuations, and struggles within (and with) relationships. I have further expertise in treating trauma, childhood maltreatment, and relational difficulties.
The therapy I offer is tailored to each person’s individual needs and I draw on the most current research as well as deep understanding and skills in the use of a variety of therapy models, which include: Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic theory, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDT), Compassionate Focused Therapy (CFT), and Systemic Theory.
I can help you develop deeper understanding of your difficulties or struggles, and together we can try to identify what might keep them going. These will help us finding ways to change what is no longer functioning well for you so that you can move closer to having the life you want. My approach is dynamic, open and flexible, although all within the boundaries of a therapy relationship. I try to offer a relationship which feels safe to bring things that are hard to talk about.
I would like to invite you to get in touch for a free of charge 20min consultation to help both of us decide whether we would be able to work together.
