About me

I specialise in depression and anxiety disorders and offer a focused CBT approach. This has also been very useful to clients who just wish to work on their personal goals, development or career.

I can help you to gain greater awareness for your mental behaviour that might have been cause for concern. This allows you to slow down and recognise unhelpful behaviour patterns, but also to develop new perspectives that lead to better decisions. My clients appreciate my flexible and practical approach and welcome my active contributions to face their challenges. However, my approach does not advocate the use of coping strategies, questionnaires or rigid structures. Instead the focus is mainly on your mind set that is expressed through your narratives.

My expertise lies with clients who have been affected by serious mental health problems reaching crisis point, traumatic childhoods, bereavement, work related stress or long term sickness and are finding it difficult to restore normality and focus. I have also worked extensively with clients with relationship problems who have been going through trial separations, traumatic divorces or have suffered from abusive relationships. My daily work routine includes working with clients who are in crisis situations and require psychological first aid as well as ongoing support. I have gained my experience by working for many years in the private and corporate sector as well as for a number of charities, meeting a broad range of clients with very diverse backgrounds.

As I am from an engineering background with many years of experience as a Quality Consultant and Trainer, I can also help with performance anxiety, fatigue and procrastination, if you are suffering from work or study related stress. I have also been working with principals, teachers, NQTs who have been struggling with the overwhelming demands of the teaching profession.

My approach

I am qualified to work with a number of counselling modalities which include humanistic approaches as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in order to meet your individual needs; I offer short-term interventions as well as long-term therapy. Please contact me, if you would like to discuss this further.
