About me and my therapy practice

I firmly believe that everyone can go through periods where things seem insurmountable. It may be that life has become difficult only very recently or that you've realised you have been struggling to cope over the longer term.

Nevertheless, it is often the very meanings we give to these situations that has caused us problems or feelings of distress. We may have learnt unhelpful ways of coping with distressing feelings, which in the longer term seem to maintain our levels of distress.

I aim to offer a safe and affirming space where you can make sense of your difficulties, so as to help you get unstuck and importantly, to move forward towards positive change. Our work together is, therefore, orientated to generating greater understanding of your difficulties and hence to increase compassion for yourself.

At present, I am completing my doctoral training in Counselling Psychology. I hold Graduate Membership of the British Psychological Society and within that Divisional Membership of the Counselling Psychology Section. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and a published academic author.

My background in academic psychology and counselling allows me to draw upon evidence-based interventions to guide my practice. I combine assessment skills, as well as interview, questionnaire and psychometric tools to assess for current mental health symptoms and functioning. I use this information to formulate maintaining factors and suggest treatment options. In adopting a relational approach, however, I believe these factors are best understood within the context of our lives and earlier experiences and hence will pay careful attention to how the therapeutic relationship may mirror past or current conflicts.

I work within CBT, humanistic and psychodynamic therapies. I am currently in the latter stages of a doctoral qualification in psychology.
