About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and other evidence-based psychological therapies. I am specialising in the treatment of a wide range of anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, personality disorders, and addictions.

I am accredited with BABCP, a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.

My primary goal is to help you understand, manage and overcome your difficulties, process any unresolved issues, and and equip you with various tools to prevent a future relapse. In other words, I help you become your own therapist. The essence of my work is to develop a strong relationship with you based on empathy, active listening, acceptance and collaboration.

The main therapeutic models I use in my practice are the following:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT focuses on achieving specific results within a defined time period and is based on proven research evidence.

Schema Therapy: for people with personality disorder traits. It combines aspects of CBT, Gestalt and psychoanalysis.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR): to help people process unresolved trauma or any other distressing memories.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): It is based on CBT, but adapted for people with personality disorders, or for individuals who experience emotions very intensely.

I work with individuals and couples and I offer short- and long-term psychotherapy for a range of issues, from day to day worries to complex psychological conditions.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
