Psychological therapy by telephone, video or in person.
If you’re looking for some help with your mood, behaviours, relationships, then psychological therapy may be a good fit for you. In therapy, I aim to offer a friendly, nonjudgemental space, where we can get stuck in to understanding how you tick, to work through the problems you bring. You might have a clear idea of what you want, but I otherwise draw on various therapy approaches to personalise strategies so you can do what works for you, to make the changes you need.
My experience is mainly adult mental health, including complex care, and autism. I use CBT, CFT and EMDR (fully trained), but I do tend to bring in what works e.g. from DBT, Systemic, Attachment, MBT models (see my website for further information).
