This is me

When I reflect back I have always been drawn to working and helping people.

Specialist areas

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) 

I have over ten years experience using CBT and have a specialism in integrating CBT into other therapies to provide you with an approach that is designed exactly to your needs.

Working with Anxiety related disorders 

I have expertise in helping clients to explore the possible causes and triggers of their anxiety – including those created by employment, relationships and past experiences – and work with you to develop effective coping strategies. I also have expertise in treating children and young people experiencing anxiety.

Child Therapy

I will work with you and your child (at any age) to determine the cause of the presenting problem, and create a safe space for your child to be understood and have his or her concerns addressed using cognitive behavioural therapy, play therapy, family therapy, and/or parenting guidance.

Helping you find meaning

I help clients go beyond what their presenting problem and discover not only the root cause of their issues but learn how to make repair to past hurts and find a new sense of purpose. I am an expert in helping clients breakthrough that feeling of being stuck and feeling that they are back at square one! To overcome that sense of not being able to tolerate certain type of feelings such as anxiety or sadness. I will help you get to know yourself better and recognise your triggers, so you can break habits that are no longer working for you.
