I am a HCPC registered and chartered psychologist. My professional training has allowed me to understand the human psyche from both a scientific and philosophical perspective, promoting the view of humans and their suffering, that steers away from over simplifying the human experience. Thus my clinical practice aims to honour one’s individual subjective experience and story, whilst working in an evidence based way to unearth cognitive and behavioural patterns which may have become increasingly embedded over time.
My experience includes providing specialist psychological assessments based upon the integration of complex psychological information from a variety of sources including neuropsychological tests, self-report measures, rating scales and semi structured interviews. All of which I discuss throughout the therapy process ensuring our work together in transparent and collaborative.
My main theoretical orientations are Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), however depending on the individual goals of therapy, I also use Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Existential psychotherapy, Narrative therapy, Person-Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.
Here is a list of difficulties I have worked extensively with:
