About me and my therapy practice

I offer a professional, confidential and caring counselling/psychotherapy service for adults and young people who want to improve their mental health and emotional wellbeing.

I regularly help people with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, trauma, dissociation, OCD, anger, and current or historical sexual, psychological or physical abuse, as well as many other personal issues affecting mental health. 

Practice description

I start with a Person Centred approach and may integrate aspects of the following:

- Transactional Analysis,

- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention,     Acceptance/Commitment,

- Dialectic Behavioural Therapy,

- Neuro Linguistic Programming & the Rewind Technique.

- Breath and control of the nervous system through focussed breathing.

- I also use creative methods where appropriate and if you are comfortable to do so. With children/young people I may draw on more creative and play-oriented processes rather than relying purely on one-to-one discussion.

I am solution focussed - sometimes it is important to spend time talking about what has happened and sometimes it is better to be challenged, to process and to move to a better place.
