About me

I have been working in the field of psychology for over 10 years.  My approach to therapy is a collaborative one. You are the expert on you’re life and through the relationship built together we draw on your strengths and attributes. I am passionate about providing a space where you can be open, comfortable and feel validated. My aim is to support you to live the life you love to live, through healing, having healthy relationships, coping strategies and processing difficult emotions.

I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence based psychological treatment proven to be effective for the treatment of a wide range of difficulties. CBT is the recommended treatment for depression, generalised anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), health anxiety, social anxiety and specific phobias (including agoraphobia and claustrophobia).

I offer Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and the aim of this is to increase awareness so that we can respond to situations with choice rather then reacting automatically. I also use approaches from Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.

I draw upon somatic, emotional, behavioural and cognitive knowledge to address the whole person and integrate a combination of approaches to meet each individual’s unique needs.

We will address your current challenges, explore deeper emotions, beliefs and disruptive patterns, experiment with new coping resources, and increase your sense of connection to yourself, your loved ones, and your community.

Psychotherapy is a confidential space for clients to build on their existing resources, learn and practice new coping strategies, share their story, and create lasting change.

I offer a complementary 30 minute phone consultation.
