About me and my therapy practice
Mental Health issues and psychological distress can take many forms, and usually manifest as stress, depression or anxiety and problem behaviours such as addictions, compulsions, relationship and sleep issues. Identifying, understanding and treating the root causes of these symptoms can lead to personal change that is transformational and long lasting. Psychological trauma is often at the root of these issues and sometimes people are not aware of how life events have impacted their mental health.
I offer a confidential service based in Cheltenham (and online) using the most effective therapies such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and CBT, amongst others. EMDR is an internationally approved treatment for all kinds of psychological trauma arising from accidents, abuse, assaults, natural disasters and bereavements, to attachment traumas that may be experienced in childhood. I have a special interest in treating veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) arising from military service.
I work in an empathic and non-judgemental way, in order to facilitate a process of healing and change. I also believe in empowering you by describing in clear terms what you are experiencing and what the process of change involves. The BACP ethical framework underpins my therapeutic practice which maintains a strong focus on client safety and confidentiality, and always acting in your best interests.
I am particularly interested in the most effective approaches that lead to long lasting change, and recognise that the field of therapy is very diverse, alongside the outcomes and ‘value for money’ that clients receive. I therefore focus on the most effective therapeutic approaches and it is for these reasons that I utilise EMDR as part of my integrative approach to therapy – deep change is possible in just a few sessions.
