I am a psychotherapist with an extensive post graduate training in counselling psychology and around fifteen years experience as a therapist. I focus on you as an individual person.
I currently work in an NHS IAPT (increasing access to psychological therapies) service as a therapist, manager and supervisor. My experience involves a broad range of settings including NHS involving working with more common everyday difficulties such as relationship difficulties, stress, work problems, low self-esteem, bereavement, anxiety, depression, stress, OCD, PTSD etc. I have also worked with addiction, psychosis, bi-polar disorder, personality difficulties, complex trauma and abuse. I have worked with people with mild to severe learning disabilities, autism and Aspergers. I have experience with long term health conditions. I have worked on mental health wards, with neuro-psychological problems including dementia and acquired brain injury.
I have provided therapy to children for the last five years. From secondary school age I see them individually. Up to age 11, I meet your child with you the parents and then decide on how to proceed – this can involve behavioural strategies, therapy for your child and/or play therapy.
