I am trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and Eye Movement Desenitization and Reprocessing Therapist (EMDR). CBT is a type of therapy that helps you to change your thinking and beliefs about yourself and the world. EMDR is a type of therapy that is used to successfully treat trauma, it can be used to treat general anxiety and depression too. I have a number of years’ experience working in the NHS and private sector. I work using compassion focused therapy principles with clients and devise treatment plans based on your individual needs.
I am a warm, empathic psychotherapist who strives to do the best for my clients. I am recognized by a number of health insurance companies such as Vitality, AXA and Aviva. I work with clients to maximize their strengths and to work together in order to get the best possible outcome. Session numbers on average are between 8-12 sessions. I will work with you to support you to be the best version of yourself. I have worked with various corporate companies which in turn has increased my experience working with people who are in high pressured work environments. I worked in the NHS for a number of years and developed my skills and knowledge base in supporting with people with long-term health conditions and empowering people to be their own therapist.
I have a current DBS and professional indemnity insurance.
