Thank you for looking at my profile. I can offer you a non-judgemental, compassionate and calm space within which we can perhaps uncover unconscious conflicts that may be impacting on your relationships and affecting your quality of life. For many, the therapeutic relationship is the stepping stone to better self worth, a stronger sense of self, with less anxiety and depression.
I work Psychodynamically mainly, but also coach clients to understand themselves better using Cognitive behavioural therapy and Mindfulness. See below for an explanation of how these models work, and click on the link to my website to learn more about what I treat.
Qualified to Professional Diploma level, I attend regular workshops and trainings, self study also through reading and have worked in the NHS at Primary and Secondary care levels treating a wide variety of issues. I am also a fully trained professional member of the National Centre for Eating Disorders, and run groups locally for emotional overeating and have close working ties with B-eat, the national charity for eating disorders. I am registered with the BACP and am a full member of this professional body. As such I practice within the BACP’s ethical framework for counselling and psychotherapy.
Click on these links for explanations of working Psychodynamically, which is derived from the Psychoanalytic model. I also use Cognitive-behavioural Therapy, and Mindfulness.
