I practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy within an integrative approach, which means I use methods to suit each individual client. I offer a non-judgemental safe space to talk about your problems and find a way forward together. While Cognitive Therapy offers many practical tools to help manage moods and behaviours, I allow plenty of space to explore emotions and how they drive what we do.
I work with a wide variety of people and issues including anxiety, depression, substance misuse, work/school/life stress, relationship and personal problems, neurodiversity and chronic health issues. Each person I see has their own challenges and I enjoy supporting them to overcome them using their own innate knowledge and skills.
Training, qualifications & experience
