I am a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist, accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I work using CBT theory, research and techniques to promote self-understanding, change and compassion. I help clients to develop beneficial and compassionate attitudes towards themselves and others within the framework of time-limited therapy.
I have over a decade's experience of providing therapy to people with a range of difficulties using traditional CBT and am also experienced in providing 'third wave' CBT approaches including Compassion-focused therapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
Therapy is a healing process that is guided by kindness, an understanding of unhelpful patterns and commitment to making change. I support clients through therapy and coaching techniques by promoting and developing personal strengths to achieve goals within life. Prior to starting therapy I offer a free 15 minute web-consultation to highlight a therapy focus and discuss any queries.
