About me

It takes courage to seek professional help for intolerable feelings, situations or ways of behaving. Whatever circumstances are affecting you, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) offers a valuable approach to bringing about change. This change can lead to a more rewarding and enjoyable life.

I am a CBT therapist and this enables me to help patients with depression and anxiety problems and a wide range of traumatic experiences including childhood abuse. I am pleased to help people experiencing low self-esteem, social anxiety or who are insufficiently assertive. I am also keen to explore the use of EMDR for grief and for chronic pain.

I am a warm, respectful, person-centered and non-judgemental therapist. I recognise the importance of a good therapeutic relationship and I will listen to you attentively. Please contact me for a telephone conversation to explore how I might be able to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist for a number of years in primary and secondary care within the NHS. I also run group therapy CBT courses with the Cambridge Group Therapy Centre and work as a volunteer therapist with Choices supporting men and women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse.

I have experience working with a wide range of anxiety and mood disorders. I have a particular interest in simple and complex trauma, moral injury, PTSD and insomnia. The cognitive behavioural therapy that I use is influenced by Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused therapy as well as by Schema-Focussed and Narrative Therapies.

I am trained in the use of EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) for appropriate trauma cases and I am a student of the use of EMDR in applications such as grief, abuse, nightmares and management of pain.
