Sometimes in life, we want or need to make a change to be happier or to make life different for ourselves. The cornerstone of successful therapy is the relationship between the client and therapist, so it is important to me that we are able to work together so we can discuss how to do this in order to achieve the changes you desire.
I have had the privilege of working for over 30 years with people who have experienced a range of mental health issues within the private sector as well as the NHS. Difficulties including anxiety, low mood, panic, anger, self-harm and personality disorder, or other diagnosed mental health disorders such as bi-polar disorder and clinical depression can be treated successfully. I am also experienced in working with people who have survived child sexual, physical and emotional abuse and the impact of this on their adult lives. I also work with people who may have relationship difficulties relating to family issues, raising children and couples work, and understand the challenges of cultural and economic experiences.
I have an Integrative approach encompassing my original training in family therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as further trainings in dialectic behavioural therapy (DBT), relationship counselling, psychosexual therapy, transactional analysis and I was a trainer of trauma therapy. I am currently integrating my current trainings in yoga therapy and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR).
