Practice description

As an Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist since 2008, I have been able to draw from a holistic approach to therapy that combines ideas and techniques from different therapeutic schools of thought, depending on the unique needs of my clients. 

I have chosen to specialise within my current post-qualifying training in cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, as this provides the opportunity to form a sense of structure within the sessions and my client has reported this has helped them immensely to make sense of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, in order to be able to move forward and make personal changes.

All treatment sessions and is informed by the NICE guidelines for the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders. I am able to offer treatment in line with this recommendation, for everyone with a recorded diagnosis of social phobia, specific phobia, agoraphobia, health anxiety, OCD, GAD, and PTSD.

My work is trauma-informed, which essentially means I am able to support my clients by following principles such as: understanding how trauma can affect people, including how mental health problems can be reactions to trauma. By asking sensitively about past trauma, and offering appropriate support if you choose to disclose it.

My first session

The initial session is characterised by compassion and an opportunity to be seen and your story heard. 

I offer the space to discover if this therapy approach and if our relationship can grow and meet your expectations and goals. 

You have the courage to get so far, so the initial session of therapy may offer you the first step towards healing, and knowing this is possible may even improve your well-being. I would hope that you leave the session learning more about yourself and the treatment.

We will complete the initial contracts and measurement forms and I will begin taking some information about your existing problems. I will also provide you with some literature /links with information on the themes of the session.
