Meet the Team
In addition to common mental health difficulties such as generalised anxiety, health anxiety or low mood I have a particular interest and expertise in supporting individuals to understand and process the emotional impact of past traumas and relationships.
I also enjoy working with individuals who feel they are stuck or have perhaps noticed themselves repeating unhelpful relational patterns. Within session I want to hear your story and think together about what is keeping you stuck before considering how best to move forward and work towards positive changes.
My clinical experience to date mainly includes working with adults who are experiencing a range of mental health difficulties, including anxiety disorders (e.g., health anxiety, OCD, generalised anxiety disorder), low mood, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and psychosis. I also have experience of working with children and young people and I enjoy working creatively with young people and families so that psychological therapy feels useful and is also accessible. I am also passionate to support clients that I work with to make sense of their experiences and to build on their strengths so that they can learn new ways of coping with difficult emotions or relationship problems.
I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches and offer evidence-based treatment that is tailored to meet the needs of the clients I work with. These approaches include; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), EMDR (in training), CAT, DBT and Mindfulness.
As such, maintaining a flexible approach to a clients presentation and needs is a strength of mine. I am keen to work closely with clients to find the approach that best suits them and their needs. My training means I can draw from multiple therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitnent Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT). I also have specialist interest and competencies in delivering trauma focused therapies.
Through my private work I am keen to provide 1:1 therapies to adults struggling with issues such as anxiety/phobias, depression, or traumatic life events. I am currently on maternity leave, however, will be accepting referrals from July 2021 onwards.
