About me

I am an Accredited CBT Therapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) - the lead organisation for CBT in the UK. Being an accredited member means maintaining the highest standards of practice and ethics, ensuring regular clinical supervision and professional development. This enables me to provide the best quality and evidence-based treatment for clients. I gained invaluable experience whilst working as a CBT Therapist in two local NHS Talking Therapy services, and I now work as an independent therapist within the Southbourne area. I am also a trained EMDR Therapist.  

CBT is an effective treatment for a wide range of problems and is recommended by NICE guidelines in the treatment of depression, trauma, and a range of anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, OCD, health anxiety, and panic disorder). Treatment focuses on forming a shared understanding of your main difficulty and what keeps it going, by exploring the links between how you think, feel and react to your environment. 

'Walk & Talk Therapy' - I'm excited to announce that I'm now offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) sessions in a relaxed and natural environment - the beautiful outdoors! This new approach will allow me to use my surroundings creatively during therapy sessions while maintaining my existing framework of therapeutic skills. I will be providing clients with an alternative to traditional in-person or online therapy, which can be intense for some individuals.

The 'Walking & Talking' therapy sessions will be conducted in our beautiful coastal town of Southbourne. Spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, making it an ideal setting for therapy. If you're interested in starting your 2024 with a new approach to therapy, then please call me to discuss further.
