I am passionate about helping clients intercept 'stuck' cycles by finding new ways of adjusting and coping. Many of the clients that I work with find themselves struggling with life demands or what the World Health Organisation (WHO) typically defines as 'burn-out' (ICD-10). Quite often they feel overwhelmed, depleted and unable to find an obvious solution to their problem. They find themselves chronically ruminating about the past or worrying about the future, leading to vicious cycles of depression and anxiety. These clients require a specialised therapist who can offer brief, effective treatment.
I help my clients to understand and to intercept their 'stuck' cycles by guiding them to find ways to effective ways of coping. My main treatment approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), alongside Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). All of my treatment approaches are evidence-based and recommended by the NICE guidelines.
I place a great emphasis on compassion and collaboration in my work and pride myself on achieving successful outcomes with clients. My aim is to empower clients to become their own therapist by guiding them to formulate and intercept their own problem cycles.
