About me

I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and EMDR practitioner, offering private one to one therapy for individuals experiencing a range of emotional distress.

I previously worked in Primary Care Mental Health in the NHS for more than 10 years. I have extensive experience of working with a range of depression and anxiety disorder presentations. I have experience of working with individuals using guided self help, brief interventions, computerised CBT, telephone and online transcript sessions. I therefore try to utilise these approaches where appropriate to support people in their recovery.

I am passionate about helping people recover from mental health difficulties. I feel my strength is being able to build a supportive therapeutic relationship to allow individuals to feel able to open up and share their personal experiences.

Although I primarily take a CBT based approach to treatment I use a variety of treatment approach based on the individuals needs. These include ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy), Mindfulness and CFT (Compassion Focused Therapy).

Please contact me and I would be happy to discuss things further with you in a brief telephone consultation to discuss how I might be able to help you. If I feel the approach I take is not the most suitable or appropriate, I have a good knowledge of other services and practitioners within York so can help make recommendations.
