I provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for adolescents and adults with a variety of mental health difficulties. These include depression, anxiety, social anxiety, specific anxiety, O.C.D, Panic disorder, Health anxiety, personality disorder, P.T.S.D. and complex P.T.S.D. I also have a keen interest in working with self esteem as this allows the person to have a deeper introspection to their core beliefs and patterns of behaviour. With self-esteem work, we can also target assertiveness work, which allows the person to build confidence in whatever capacity they would like to.

I worked as a Social Worker with children and adolescence for 4 years. After training in CBT, I worked in two IAPT services in London for Two years. I am currently working in the Psychological Therapies Services and have been doing so for 5 plus years. This is specifically working with adult mental health within the stepped care model.
I am currently accredited with BABCP which means I am always engaging in the most recent conferences and literature as this permits me to practice to the gold standard of psychotherapy.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have a specialism in P.T.S.D. which allows me to utilise the trauma focused CBT model for type 1 trauma such as R.T.A. and single incident traumatic events.
I also have a keen interest in working with O.C.D. for adolescents and adults.
Whilst working with childhood sexual abuse is more longer term work, I thoroughly enjoy sharing the journey of recovery with people that have been hurt in this way. I will adapt a more standardised CBT model, such as using a narrative exposure therapeutic approach.
