I am an experienced cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) therapist (accredited in both modalities). I work with adults, families, children and adolescents. (Children under 7 need to attend sessions with a parent).

I attended further training in mindfulness, working with personality disorders, CBT for couples, brief solution focus therapy and I am currently working towards accreditation as an integrative psychotherapist.
