I am a Counselling Psychologist with extensive experience. I offer a confidential service and a wide range of therapeutic interventions. I am a trained EMDR Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist and I offer psychological interventions that can help with depression, anxiety and trauma.
The Importance of Emotional Well being
Our emotional well being is of paramount importance and it helps us get the most from our lives. There is also evidence that our emotional well being is linked to our physical well being and overall health. Sometimes when people experience low mood and anxiety they feel de-motivated and experience low self esteem and confidence. There are a range of psychological therapies that can help with these issues and help to restore a healthy sense of self and in turn improve daily functioning.
Training, qualifications & experience
I graduated with an Open University Degree in Psychology in 1996. I then went onto to study Clinical Hypnotherapy in 1998 and I am a member of the National Society for Clinical Hypnotherapy. I worked for 4 years in Child and Family Psychology services while studying for a Masters Degree in Health Research. I graduated from Northumbria University in 2002. I then went on to study a Masters Degree in Social Sciences and successfully graduated once again with the Open University.
In 2004 I started studying with Teeside University in Middlesbrough for a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. During this training I specialised in both Neuropsychology and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I then became a senior Lecturer in Counselling Psychology for the Doctorate at Teeside University and did so for 3 years whilst also working as a Specialist Psychologist in Health Psychology, Community Stroke Services. I went on to become a Senior Psychologist within the NHS working in Adult Primary Care Services.
I am now working as Private practitioner and contracted with Occupational Health services.
I carry out a range of therapeutic interventions such as: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (Objects relations therapy and Self Psychology). I am trained as an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) practitioner, which helps treat Post Traumatic Stress. I also carry out Medico Legal work.
More About EMDR
Research has shown that eye movements can reduce the intensity of disturbing thoughts and feelings under certain conditions. It has been successful in treating survivors of severe trauma.
Research studies have shown that EMDR can help accelerate the healing process after a traumatic experience and that there are long term effects. EMDR is highly effective, often preferred by clients and generally of shorter duration than other treatment methods
