I have worked within mental health settings since 2008 and as a practising Counselling Psychologist since 2013. I currently also work within the NHS. I am registered with both the HCPC and BPS.
I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients to find self-acceptance, meaning and to enable growth in their personal strengths. I use an integrative approach and apply psychological models according to their unique contextual needs and value our relationship as a key component in order to foster this resolution.
I aspire to help explore and increase the awareness of beliefs and values in order to enable an understanding of how one relates to the world, themselves and others. This process of self-acceptance and growth can empower a deeper understanding of how one responds to various situations and can lead to successful change being affected. It is important to me to deliver a compassionate, genuine and non-judgemental approach and personalise therapy to the individual sitting in front of me, and to value their uniqueness.
Within the NHS, charity sector and privately, I have developed skills in Cognitive Behavioral approaches (CBT), Person-centred, Acceptance & Commitment therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT). I have worked with a wealth of difficulties such as GAD, Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, OCD, social anxiety, issues with self-esteem, personality disorders, trauma and PTSD, phobia, anger, work-stress and relationship issues, and depression.
Issues I can work with:
Insurances I work with: AXA, Aviva, Vitality, CIGNA, Simply Health, WPA and others.
