About me

Welcome. I am a highly experienced Psychologist and Psychotherapist/Counsellor, providing psychological assessments, and therapy for both individuals and couples. I work with children, adolescents and adults on a broad range of issues, including, depression, rumination, bipolar disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), anxiety, worry, stress, OCD, eating disorders, ADHD, Autism, PTSD, early onset psychosis, self-harm/suicide ideation, grief/bereavement, relationship issues, and behavioural/emotional regulation issues. 

I provide a non-judgmental and safe therapeutic environment where people can feel at ease, talk openly and reflect on their experiences. I am experienced in a range of psychotherapeutic approaches such as Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapies (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT). I have a particular interest in mindfulness, guided imagery and inner child work which can enhance a person's ability to experience a deeper connection with themselves and others. In my experience, these valuable tools tend to lead to improved mental well-being and a more fulfilling life.

My research interests include exploring the function and conceptualisation of worry and rumination and exploring how individuals can become more in control of their thoughts and emotions. I have presented my research at the National Clinical Conference on, Worry, Loneliness and Coping Styles, The National Counselling Psychology Conference 2017 on, The role of Worry and Rumination, and a paper on Repetitive Negative Thinking in Adolescents. My current research is focused on exploring concepts and therapies which could help individuals regulate their emotions more effectively.

I am aware that experiencing psychological distress can be a very lonely place and a sense of trepidation about seeing a therapist is completely natural and understandable. However, rest assured there is nothing to fear.

Your Sincerely


Gerard
