My work is influenced by a range of therapeutic approaches, such as, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Family Therapy approaches. I work in a way that allows you to feel truly heard and values your identity and past, present and future aspirations for life. Some problems may ease after a few sessions. Others might require longer-term therapy and more thought which can be worked on together.
The choice to begin therapy can be emotional. I offer an initial assessment to explore your issues at your pace, in a confidential, thoughtful and non-judgemental way and consider whether you would like to work with me. I will work with you to explore your life experiences and build your resources to foster positive changes in your life.
I work flexibly with the things that are important to you as a unique person to ensure a tailor made approach. Therapy is often about reducing immediate psychological distress but I believe it is also about helping you to lead a more happy life . Psychological therapy can help with the following:
Eating disorders (Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Maudsley Model of Family Therapy for Eating Disorders)
Minoritized identities (i.e. sexuality, ethnicity and other)
Psychological support for people wit medically unexplained symptoms
Psychological support for people with physical health
Work place stress
Psychological support for people with neurodevelopmental presentations
Parent support for managing child and young persons behaviour
