Who can I help?

During my clinical career, I have had the privilege of working with a range of client groups, both adults and children, in a range of contexts and within a variety of mediums: individual, couples and group work.

I am skilled in treating a wide range of mental health conditions, namely:

  • Anxiety disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, health anxiety, social anxiety, general anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and panic disorders,

  • Depression, 

  • Low self-esteem,

  • Complex grief,

  • Relationship difficulties, 

  • Emotion regulation difficulties,

  • Attachment disorders and 

  • The difficulties associated with the transition to parenthood, namely postnatal depression, difficulties bonding with your baby, perinatal anxiety, and the ambivalent feelings people can experience with this life transition.​

How does it work?

Individual therapy sessions last for approximately 50 minutes and are facilitated on a weekly basis. Initially sessions will focus on developing a shared understanding of your struggle and establishing goals for treatment. These goals will help to tailor the therapeutic interventions and skills discussed in the sessions. The number of sessions required differs from person to person, but on average 8 to 20 sessions are sufficient, and a review will be offered after each 6 sessions to ensure that the therapy remains on track and to discuss what is working well. Often there will be ideas and skills discussed in the sessions to practice in your day to day life, which will help you to feel more empowered to face the challenges that brought you to therapy.

I integrate a wide range of therapeutic interventions with the aim to establish a person centred treatment plan that best suits you and your needs, including:

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy),

  • ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy),

  • CFT (Compassion Focused Therapy),

  • DBT skills training (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy),

  • VIPP (Video Intervention Promoting Positive Parenting);

  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapy

The therapeutic relationship is key in fostering therapeutic change, and so time will be dedicated to reviewing what is working well or getting in the way of progress within the therapeutic space. The therapeutic process aims to provide a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space in which to think about our suffering, what maintains it and how to move forward.
