I am a qualified Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Therapist who is passionate about helping people with their psychological health and wellbeing, and the role that CBT can play in changing people’s lives. My approach is compassionate and gentle, but also active and interventionist, to empower my clients with knowledge, tools and strategies to identify and change destructive mindsets that impact so greatly on their wellbeing and achievement. I am also trained to work with a wide range of issues but I have a special interest in working with adults and adolescents suffering from anxiety disorders and depression.
My training covers integrative counselling and CBT, which gives me a broad range of knowledge, skills and tools. I am trained to work with adults, children and young people. The core CBT model I use is rational emotive behavioural therapy (REBT), and from there I integrate treatment techniques where appropriate and beneficial for the client, from other CBT models including: cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, solution focused therapy, compassion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy and EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing).
