Special interest areas
I work with a broad range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, trauma and abuse, eating difficulties, relationship difficulties, shame, chronic illness and chronic pain, loneliness and bullying, self-esteem, loss, stress, and work-related issues.
My approach focuses upon your subjective experience, exploring the meanings behind your symptoms and uncovering emotional and behavioural patterns that were adaptive once, but are now keeping you stuck. You will develop an awareness into who you are in the world, the roles that you take up in relation to others and the beliefs that you are holding about yourself. It is through these explorations that new choices and solutions emerge.
I work with adults and adolescents in private practise and I have worked at the charities Mind and Place2Be. I have over five years of experience as a Clinical Lead and Supervisor at EASE Wellbeing, delivering and supervising a short term, goal-orientated intervention in the NHS.
Research shows that the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor for change and accordingly relational dynamics and ensuring that you feel comfortable to be fully yourself, is at the forefront of my approach.
