About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) trained in the use of Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), working from a strong Humanistic base.

I have experience of working with clients in: addictions (drug, alcohol, gambling, sex and internet pornography), anger management /stress management, anxiety and panic, assertiveness, bereavement / loss of any kind, career counselling/development, confidence / self-esteem, cultural issues, dilemmas/decision making, depression, direction planning, motivation, PAIN, personal coaching, relationship issues, TRAUMA (Big T = road traffic accidents, abuse, suicide survivor, etc and Little t = anything from the past that 'still lives within'), suicidal feelings and work related issues.

NO judgement here, just understanding and empathic support.

Initial assessment sessions last up to 90 minutes and will allow you to see if you would feel comfortable working with me, and also allow me to see if I feel that I have the necessary background to help you, CBT therapy sessions last 50-60 minutes and EMDR therapy sessions last up to 90 minutes. GP, Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) and Medico/Legal Company referrals are welcomed.
