Thank you for taking the time to read 'about me'.
Firstly, I will do my best to help you feel safe and comfortable as you embark on your therapeutic journey.
I have been delivering Psychological therapy for in excess of 20 years, predominantly within the NHS services. This included working as a Senior High Intensity therapist in IAPT since 2009.
I am qualified in many models of therapy so treat most presentations.
I practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) for trauma, mild or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This therapy is incredibly effective for veterans of war, victims of violence, road traffic accidents, victims or crime, bullying or any minor trauma.
I also practice Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy when the difficulty seems to be concerning around our relationships and how we respond to others.
I am trained in Solution Focus Brief Therapy and Mindfulness.
I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor (Middx Uni) which was my original core training.
I have a PG qualification in Brain/Head Injury and treat individuals (victim or other, carers and family that are affected)
I work with individuals and couples.
I am also a qualifed PG dip in casework supervision and further training at The Institute of Psychiatry.
My private practice is situated at the end of a lane in a very rural and secluded location which is both therapeutic in itself and confidential.
