I provide short and long term therapy. I specialise in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic approach.
CBT- Cognitive behavioural therapy can help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down. In CBT, problems are broken down into 5 main areas: situations ; thoughts ; emotions ; physical feelings ; actions ; CBT is based on the concept of these 5 areas being interconnected and affecting each other.
Psychodynamic- The Psychodynamic approach includes all the theories in psychology that see human functioning based upon the interaction of drives and forces within the person, particularly unconscious. The Psychodynamic approach is one of the older forms of talk therapy, moving things a step forward from Freud and psychoanalysis. It shares with psychoanalysis a belief that in order to understand the ways we think and act in the present, we need to explore both our unconscious and our past experiences and relationships. It also enables us to reflect on our emotions before and after we react and become more aware of our repetitive behaviour and relationship patterns.
I help clients to identify with their feelings and behaviour.
My biggest reward for me is being able to see my clients transition through their difficulties by working collaboratively in achieving their goals.
I offer all of my services 121, online or by phone.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
