About me

Psychotherapy is a great way to reduce the symptoms of many different issues, such as anxiety and depression. These can be debilitating for a person and this can effect their home-life, work-life, social-life, which in turn can make you feel worse. Altering the way that you think or react to certain events, can in turn alter the emotions that are a result of this.

You might not even know what is causing you to feel the way you do, and need some help and guidance with this. I can offer you a safe place to be able to talk confidentially with someone who understands what you are going through.

I offer face to face therapy, but I also offer online therapy if this is a preferred method.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Psychotherapist and I have a therapy centre within the Blackpool Town Centre and this is where I conduct all of my Private Practice work.

I use different therapy methods, such as, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy.

I have worked as a therapist within Children's homes and have also had experience within Locked Rehabilitation Hospitals and Low Secure Hospitals.

I have a postgraduate diploma in CBT and Groupwork, and as part of my training we have completed training in Schema Therapy, DBT and the Gestalt approach. I have such passion when it comes to helping people to get through the difficulties that can arise from mental health issues.
