About me

I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and full accredited member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), BSc (Psych.), PgDip.

My work experience covers a wide variety of clients within a wide variety of clinical settings in both Primary and Secondary care, which has allowed me to gain an extensive work experience and education treating mental health problems.

Some of my relevant previous posts are the Dialectical Behavioural Therapy work as part of the East London and the City Mental Health Trust, my five-years work with the Depression and Anxiety Service in Exeter, East and Mid Devon and, most recently, I have worked with survivals of childhood trauma for the Psychology and Psychotherapy Department in Exeter.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have received high quality training on Cognitive Behavioural therapy and Dialectical Behavioural therapy enabling me to work to high standards and to maintain adherence to evidence-based interventions for simple and complex presentations.

I use an integrative approach and draw from different theoretical and practical perspectives in order to better understand problems and to inform appropriate therapeutic interventions. The approaches I work with are a combination of Cognitive and Behavioural approaches, Compassionate Mind and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
