Life can be trying at times and we could all benefit of support when this happens. It takes courage to asking for help and to begin this process. I am here to walk through this journey with you when you are ready to seek support. In everything I do as a therapist and coach, I believe in individuals’ ability to reach their full potential to live a fulfilling life when getting the right support. The way I support my clients is with passion, compassion and respect for their humanity, strengths and values. My aim is to enable you to identify priorities, learn new skills and achieve your goals.
I offer talking therapies, life and performance coaching, supervision and training on mental health and well-being subjects.
My approach focuses on supporting individuals to understand the factors that contribute to their difficulties and then consider proactive alternative ways of dealing with the issues identified. The main goal is to support individuals to make behavioural changes that enable them to live a more fulfilled life.
The model I use can be described in 5 steps:
a. Identify the issues and difficulties you experience by listening to what you have been through
b. Clarify and decide priorities for what has to change
c. Develop a plan together taking into consideration your style and preferences
d. Learn skills and new ways to tackle the issues that cause you difficulties
e. Apply the new skills to your circumstances to develop and adopt a new approach and/or behaviour
In therapy and coaching I believe in using what works thus I regularly read journals and attend professional training to update my skills and knowledge, to ensure I offer the most effective treatments available.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Counselling Psychologist with expertise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Integrative Psychotherapy (applied to emotional difficulties as well as coaching). I hold professional registration and accreditation with a number of bodies, such as Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), British Psychological Society (BPS), British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have been working as a therapist for over 17 years and I have experience in providing therapeutic services in a number of settings including organisational, primary care mental health services, voluntary sector and private practice. Besides carrying out clinical work I have also held senior operational management positions in NHS, overseeing the delivery of countywide Primary Care psychological therapy services and Psychological Wellbeing services for NHS staff and other organisations.
I am also qualified and experienced in providing clinical supervision to other therapists, counsellors and life coaches.
