Personal Statement

I provide evidence-based psychological interventions based on individualized formulation. During the assessment we will explore what brings you to therapy and what you hope to achieve or change. We will work together to better understand your difficulties and agree on a treatment plan with clear and specific goals.

Finding the right therapist is not easy at times and an initial conversation can be set up to help decide if you wish to proceed with a course of therapy.
