I have a Master’s degree in cognitive behavioural psychotherapy and am currently provisionally accredited with the BABCP. My Master's dissertation was an autoethnographic study critically reflecting and analysing the impact of sexual abuse in family systems. My hope is to share my understanding of the issues that arise within this field and bring specialist knowledge to my psychotherapy practice, which was further supported by my voluntary work in this field.
The research undertaken has enabled me to gain a deeper level of critical reflective awareness and theoretical understanding as a professional Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.
I believe my ability to establish therapeutic alliances with clients is my greatest strength as a practitioner. Working as a mentor with young people (aged 11-18) has supported the development of strong interpersonal skills, using communication and warmth to overcome barriers to learning and motivation, and increasing the confidence and self-esteem with my clients and students.
