Welcome

Hello, I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist experienced in providing therapy to adults suffering from a variety of psychological difficulties and/or relationship problems. If you are considering therapy at this time then you can be reassured that I am both professional and compassionate in my approach to helping people.


I work with the following difficulties:

Stress
Phobias
Panic Attacks
Perfectionism
Low Self-Esteem
Worry/Generalised Anxiety
Obsessive-Compulsive
Disorder (OCD)

Agoraphobia
Social Anxiety
Health Anxiety
Relationship Difficulties
Post-traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD)
Coping with Autism/Asperger’s syndrome

Therapy

The therapy I offer is informed by cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), compassion focussed therapy, mindfulness and narrative exposure therapy and is always tailored to the client. CBT is an evidence-based talking therapy recommended by the UK National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for a number of psychological difficulties.


CBT involves developing your skills to help you to challenge the way you think and behave in response to difficult situations. Through teaching new coping strategies CBT helps individuals to deal with difficult feelings. In CBT discussing overwhelming problems and breaking these down into smaller parts helps individuals to deal with these difficulties in more positive and practical ways.


You can find out more about CBT on the following NHS website:

How I work

Prior to starting therapy I offer a free 20 minute consultation to help you to decide whether therapy could be helpful for you.


I offer weekly face-to-face or skype sessions.

During our first few sessions I will ask you questions about your life, background and current difficulties. We will then agree on an individualised treatment plan, including the number of sessions required, to help you to address some of the difficulties you wish to work on.


The length of treatment varies from person to person, however, most difficulties can be effectively addressed in 5-20 sessions, with each session lasting for 50 minutes.
