Philosophy

My belief is that our biological, psychological and social context together makes up our individual experiences of life. Sometimes, our unique lens of reality can be limiting us, leaving us feeling stuck. Every now and then, a new perspective can enable us to see these blind spots, empowering us to make choices that serve our values and direct us towards living a fulfilling, meaningful life.

Approach

Owing to my training and 10+ years of experience, I am highly skilled in psychological approaches including CBT and EMDR to name a few. I am professional and up to date with research and evidenced based practice. However, this alone does not define how I work as it is important for me to connect with my patient on a human level first, and understand the following:

  1. What is it that my patient needs right now and in the long term?
  2. How can I enable them to achieve this in a way that works for them?

My approach is about respecting your values and holding a space for different perspectives and worldviews. This has enabled me to work successfully with clients across the lifespan. Reflecting on my patients experiences in a holistic way, prompts me to integrate a combination of therapeutic approaches that best suit their unique context and circumstances.

Motivation

I know how isolating and hard it can feel coping with life events. Witnessing people overcome difficulties they couldn’t imagine themselves doing and seeing people regain a sense of control and hope for their future reminds me how important my work and impact can be. Working together through challenges may be a daunting but life-changing decision- one only you can make.

About me

I would describe myself as someone down to earth who appreciates things that have required effort to create. In other words, I’m a big fan of the arts, film and am a self-proclaimed ‘foodie’. I have been described as a calm and collected person who sees the best in people.

Recent Testimonials

“Therapy has improved my life in a big way. It has enabled me to think and act positively, and cope with every day stress and anxiety. As a direct result of the tools I have gained, I am a much happier person. I cannot recommend Dr Gray highly enough, and would encourage anyone who is struggling to give therapy a go”.
