About me and my therapy practice

I saw my first clients in 2007 and have worked in both private practice and in recent years as a high intensity therapist for the NHS. 

I like to think of how I work as 'soft CBT' - with the focus firmly on you, the client, and what you want to gain from your sessions, whilst incorporating research proven methods to help. 

I have found that the most important factor in a persons recovery in therapy, is not the particular training a therapist has, but the strength of the alliance between therapist and client - this is why the first session is free, for us to meet and for you to decide 'do I think I would like to continue with this person?'

I work exclusively through video link sessions, as this allows more flexibility and in my experience, gains the same results as face to face. 

Practice description

My background is as a CBT therapist, however having spent over 20 years as a Samaritan,  I am also very person centred in my approach. 

My sessions are generally relaxed, and I firmly believe that humour is an essential part of the process - regardless of what each person is presenting with. 

I will work using research proven methods, but remain flexible to changes that occur as we are working together - 'life happens' and we will always take time to talk over anything you want to bring to the session, with an eye on your overall goals for your time in therapy.
