About me and my therapy practice
I am a doctor of counselling psychology (DPsych), and have also trained as a therapeutic counsellor (PGDip). I have worked for the NHS for over ten years, and have experience in a variety of contexts including, primary care psychology services, adult mental health teams, and hospital psychotherapy departments. I am a chartered member (CPsychol) of The British Psychological Society, an accredited member (MBACP Accred) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council.
I take an integrative approach to psychological therapy, informed by psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural theories regarding how people think, feel, behave and relate to one another. I work in short or long-term therapy on a weekly basis, and sessions last for fifty minutes.
I work with many different types of psychological problems, including depression, social anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. I also work with clients who say their problems stem from relating to other people. This might be with family members, in romantic relationships, friendships, or colleagues at work.
The way I work is unique to each individual client, and is dependent on their particular difficulties and needs. I work collaboratively with my clients to formulate an understanding of their experiences, and determine what is preventing them from leading more satisfying lives.
