Approach and Professional Experience

In my work my focus is on you as an individual and how we can work best together to enable you to grow and become more resilient.

I am trained and experienced in cognitive behaviour therapy, EMDR and schema therapy and have a particular interest in the interaction between mental and physical well-being.

I have worked in teams providing mental healthcare for a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, emotional problems and trauma-related issues. My experience includes specialised treatment for addictions, trauma and personality disorders.
