Bi-polar disorder. Long term depression and underlying schemas. Treatment resistant depression. Schema therapy. Psychedelics for the treatment of depression.
My experience of working one-to-one, with couples and with groups has taught me the value of a flexible approach to psychotherapy and counselling, accommodating the individual ways in which people experience emotional and psychological problems.
These problems may be associated with specific challenges, for example, at work or at home. A central focus of my sessions is working collaboratively with clients and patients to develop strategies to manage these dynamics.
