I offer a collaborative approach, working with you to determine what your goals are and how we may begin to address them. I draw on a range of approaches to ensure that your wants and needs are met; including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness based approaches and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). Services are provided using a variety of theoretical approaches adapted to suit your needs. I will work collaboratively with you to help you understand what you want from therapy and how you will be able to achieve this.
