I am passionate about providing a supportive environment for my patients to be able to work on achieving their goals. Using evidence-based approaches with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), I am keen to help people reach recovery and learn skills to help maintain this, following therapy. I regularly review therapy with my patients to ensure that it continues to meet individual patient’s needs.
