About My Service

Many of us find that life often confronts us with unexpected emotional challenges, relationship difficulties, psychological pain, or challenging situations. At times like these, we can often feel distressed, overwhelmed, and not know where to turn for help.

I offer evidence-based psychological therapies for a wide range of emotional, relational, and behavioural difficulties. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, which means that I am able to consider a person’s difficulties in a way that suits their individual needs.

I provide a therapeutic experience where a person can feel safe and secure within a non-judgemental professional environment provided by a competent and experienced practitioner. I am an integrative practitioner, which means that I commonly work by combining a number of therapeutic approaches which are tailored to suit your specific, individual needs.

The three main approaches I use are:

About my serivceHumanistic/Person-centred Therapy, which focuses on the natural tendency people have to grow emotionally. This approach emphasises the value of empathic listening, the healthy expression of emotions, and creating a non-judgemental environment that fosters emotional growth.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is based on exploring and testing out thoughts and beliefs that may contribute to psychological problems. It can be a more active form of therapy that may involve monitoring of thought processes, and challenging previously held assumptions.

Psychodynamic Therapy, which emphasises our relationship histories and how they have shaped our patterns of emotional coping and ways of relating to both ourselves and others.

I also draw on other specific approaches such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassionate Mind Training.
