Philosophy

With the fast pace of modern life, it is not surprising that we feel under pressure.When faced with difficult life events, transitions at work or in our home life, we may experience stress, anxiety, low mood, depression, anger, or other negative emotions. We might start to negatively compare ourselves to others or take ourselves for granted. These experiences may result in a loss of confidence, self-esteem, or motivation and negative patterns of thinking and behaving may begin to emerge. For instance, some of us might start to use alcohol or drugs, over or under eat, or excessively exercise or clean, as a way of trying to escape and cope with life’s demands. When these negative thoughts, physical symptoms, emotions, and behaviours begin to impact our relationships, work, and quality of life, we may need support and guidance to move forward and make changes.

Psychological therapy can build your resilience and improve your sense of
personal wellbeing.

Approach

The initial sessions aim to identify the problems you would like to address and any relevant background information. Collaboratively we will develop specific and realistic goals that you would like to achieve; these are flexible and constantly under review.

My aim is to develop a shared understanding of the nature of your difficulties, explore the underlying issues that may be the cause and identify any thoughts or behaviours that may be maintaining your problems. I hope to create a safe and supportive space that is confidential, empathic and non-judgmental, where you can openly discuss and consider your difficulties.

My training as a Clinical Psychologist allows me the flexibility to draw on a diverse range of psychological theories and practice of therapeutic models. I endeavour to develop treatment programmes that meet your needs and goals, and that use the most current and evidence-based therapies.

These include:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Schema therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCBT)
Dialectal Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Emotion-focussed couple therapy

These approaches complement one another in the treatment of common mental health problems. I am also experienced in tailoring treatment programmes to meet the developmental stage of children and adolescents and the specific needs of people with learning disabilities and dementia.

Motivation

My goal is for my clients to learn a range of practical skills and strategies to manage their problems, and effectively become their own therapist. It is hugely rewarding as a psychologist to watch my clients develop the confidence to help themselves and cope effectively with life’s challenges in the present and future.
