Personal Statement

I am an accredited CBT Therapist with additional training in Compassion Focused Therapy approaches and in interest in ACT and Mindfulness. With my training and experience I will support you in getting a deeper insight and understanding in what is maintaining your difficulties.

I find that having a kind, non-judgmental understanding of one’s distress and difficulties is key to start the journey of change. Once we have a shared understanding, we will look to learn and implement different techniques and approaches to find more helpful ways to respond to distressing thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

I am interested in the latest research and am always looking for opportunities to further my knowledge and skills that would better equip my practice as a clinician. People describe me as having a genuine and empathic nature that naturally creates a safe and comfortable space for people to explore their difficulties.
