BABCP - focused, engaging therapy for lasting change

About me

Hi, I’m an experienced therapist with over fourteen years working in the NHS, most recently as a senior clinician. I love my work and I have an excellent track record of helping clients from all walks of life with a wide variety of issues. My main therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but I also draw on training in Schema Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Mindfulness. I offer sessions in person, over the phone and online.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy uses a simple but flexible framework to change problems by identifying unhelpful patterns which involve our thoughts, behaviour, physical sensations and feelings. Some of these may have developed recently due to changes in life circumstances, others may be a result of old patterns which are no longer helpful.

As a therapist I will tailor treatment to suit your needs using a warm, engaging and collaborative approach . We would initially work together to understand the patterns that have led you to feel distressed. Once we have made sense of your difficulties together we will draw on the research evidence, our experience and your strengths to find lasting solutions and bring emotional change.

I specialise in working with all forms of anxiety and depression, alongside the vulnerabilities which can under-pin these such as low self-esteem, body image issues, perfectionism, relationship issues and past traumas.

My training in interpersonal therapy is especially helpful if you are experiencing difficulties within relationships such as grief, conflict, isolation or big changes such as a break up.

Treatment will help you to become your own therapist by gaining new skills and the knowledge of when to apply them, and at the end of therapy we will find ways to keep what you have learned in place so you can continue to thrive.

I work within ethical guidelines and have regular supervision to ensure the best care. I offer a brief free phone consultation to confirm that I am best placed to help prior to in-person meetings.

If you would like to know more then please get in touch and we can talk further.
