I use approaches approved by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) or otherwise supported by a scientific evidence base. Whilst trained in several psychotherapeutic approaches, my main models of treatment are CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). I have a strong interest in mindfulness-based interventions and positive psychology.
In all my work, I recognise the influence of unique life circumstances on the development of people’s difficulties. I aim to support clients to build on their strengths, as well as to learn new skills, to both overcome their current life challenges and build future resilience.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS). I also have full accreditation with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP).
I have worked in a range of NHS services throughout my career, both as a clinician and in leadership roles. I have also worked as a University lecturer and have been involved in several psychological therapy research trials. I continue towork as a clinical supervisor within the NHS.
I specialise in the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I also work with individuals with physical health symptoms, or complicated grief, to facilitate the process of adjustment to the changes in life that these can bring.
