About me

I take an integrative approach to therapy and work predominantly within a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, but also draw on perspectives from other therapies to promote positive change.

The most important aspect of success in counselling is the relationship between us. I tailor the approach to your needs in collaboration with you so that ultimately you can become your own therapist, by applying new skills and techniques to determine positive patterns of thinking and behaving.

I understand that coming for therapy can be a bit scary or daunting, even if you have been before, meeting someone new can be challenging especially if you’re feeling vulnerable or out of sorts. Choosing to come for therapy is about caring for and prioritising your own needs, and allowing yourself time and space to think things through. I can help you cope with those painful feelings and distressing, upsetting thoughts, and together, we will find the solutions that help you.

I have AXA PPP Healthcare Professional recognition and am a recognised provider of medical treatment with VitalityHealth
