I am trained in a broad range of therapeutic approaches, my extensive studies have enabled me to create a flexible style of working to meet individual client needs, making use of Integrative Counselling, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), CFS (Compassion Focused Therapy) and Mindfulness resources.
I am self-employed and working in GP practices; treating a variety of severe depression and anxiety disorders.
I am working with agencies where I exclusively treat trauma
I am conducting Mindfulness groups for NHS
I am a strong believer in holistic health as an approach to life. Rather than focusing on illness or specific parts of the body, I consider the whole person and how we interact with our environment. In treatment I emphasise the connection between rational and irrational thinking, emotions, body, and spirit.
Some people find it helpful to have mindfulness resources and exercises online to use outside of therapy. Please visit My YouTube channel
Throughout the treatment I will show
• Empathy in understanding and connecting to your point of point of view
• Congruence, I will do my best to be genuine
• Unconditional positive regard (judgments interfere with my thoughts and yours,
we will work on being non-judgemental in order to better understand thought processing or emotions).
I believe that love, understanding, validation are like vitamins for the brain and the body.
