Types of ClientsChildren
As a psychologist, I am warm, flexible and compassionate, and I aim to get to know you and work at a pace that suits you. I work in an integrative, formulation-driven way, which means at the start of therapy we build a formulation together, which helps us understand what has led to some of the difficulties you might be having and what might be keeping the difficulties going. Integrative means I combine parts from a range of therapeutic approaches to match your needs. The main approaches I use include CBT, compassion-focused therapy, systemic or family therapy and narrative therapy.
