About me

I am a registered dramatherapist and an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist - I support individuals and couples with their emotional wellbeing. I have private and public sector experience as a Dramatherapist and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist. My interest includes mental health, Depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I have also worked with adults with a learning disability and Autism alongside mental health disorders for over ten years.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your emotions and actions. It recognises and challenges negative thoughts which maintain the issues you experience. The objective of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates cognitive behavioural therapy for alcohol dependence, anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bipolar disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), bulimia nervosa, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, self harm and social anxiety disorder.

Drama Therapy

Drama therapy helps you express yourself via drama and myths. There is no need for you to possess skills in acting. Drama therapy aims to help you create emotional change.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends drama therapy for schizophrenia.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover suitable methods of coping.

What to Expect

An initial assessment meeting allows you to see if you are comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and determine if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option to arrange an initial assessment appointment in Middlesbrough.
