At some point in our lives most of us have felt overwhelmed by our emotions and thoughts, which can affect how we behave, and how we think about ourselves and the world around us. I feel that psychological interventions can provide a safe and confidential space to understand these difficulties, and can bring about positive changes. I believe that creating a deeper understanding of oneself can help people to lead the life they have been wanting to live.
I am a Counselling Psychologist who believes therapy is a collaborative process, and that effective change is based on the relationship between you and the patient. I use Cognitive behavioural, person centred and psychodynamic approaches to inform my practice. I understand that every patient’s presentation is different and therefore I like to tailor my interventions to the needs of the patients and their goals for therapy.
In the past, I have worked for the NHS, charities and in forensic settings all of these experiences have enriched my practice. I have worked with children, adults, families, couples and older adults with a variety of mental health difficulties.
In my initial sessions, I attempt to build a mutual understanding of the patient’s difficulties and a plan on how the therapy can address these. The therapy will involve exploring the patient’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour, including the patient’s relationships, social and cultural influences and background. This in turn, will hopefully help the patient to understand/approach their difficulties in a different way with better coping mechanisms.
I have always wanted to be a psychologist from a young age. I am naturally curious about other people and I get a huge personal satisfaction in supporting people overcome difficulties which are holding them back in some way.
When I have some free time, I love to see friends, bake (and eat cake), watch films, read and I have recently discovered the world of podcasts which has greatly improved my commute!
