About me

I am a qualified Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) practitioner with 8 years experience. I am accredited by the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT).  I have 10 years experience working for the NHS offering therapeutic interventions to clients age 16-65, experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties, including anxiety, depression, bi-polar, personality disorder, childhood trauma and relationship difficulties.  In addition to this I have been working privately for the last 4 years.  

CAT is a collaborative programme for looking at the way a person thinks, feels and acts and the events and relationships that underlie these experiences (often from childhood).  It is a time-limited therapy-between 8 and 24 weeks, but typically 16. 

I am also a qualified Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Practitioner.  I do not offer formal DBT, however, I sometimes draw upon DBT skills within the CAT sessions to help clients think about helpful coping strategies they can use.   

Due to the current circumstances I am seeing clients via Zoom.  I have availability on Monday and Tuesday between 9-6pm.  I also have some availability in the evenings on Wednesday and Thursday and on Friday morning.  

If you would like to know more I would be happy to have a chat with you over the phone or you can send me an email.
