PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY SERVICE – ADULT MENTAL HEALTH

No two people are the same, and I will work with you to develop an approach to treatment that is tailored to your individual needs and concerns. I am trained to work using a variety of models and approaches, and we will talk about which way of working is most likely to help you and which may suit you best. One of the most important components of any therapeutic model, regardless of its theoretical basis and any specific techniques, is a safe relationship with a trusted therapist by whom you feel heard and understood.

What can I help with?

I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of issues and difficulties including:

•    Depression and low mood
•    Anxiety, worry and stress
•    Panic disorder
•    Health anxiety
•    Obsessive-compulsive disorder
•    Social anxiety
•    Self-esteem and confidence
•    Grief, loss and bereavement
•    Relationship and family problems
•    Experiences of abuse
•    Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder
•    Adjustment difficulties and life transitions
•    Sleep problems

If you are struggling with something that is not covered by any of the areas on this list but you would like to get in touch, I will be happy to think with you about whether I am able to help.

Who do I work with?

My therapeutic work is with adults (17 years and up). If you are – or are looking on behalf of – a young adult under the age of 18 and would like to talk to me about whether I might be able to help, I would of course be very happy to hear from you. I also work closely with a number of child and adolescent psychologists who I am delighted to recommend.

How do I work?

My training as a clinical psychologist enables me to use a range of theoretical and therapeutic approaches. I work in a very flexible and responsive way, drawing on different models according to your needs and preferences. I have undertaken post-qualification training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mentalisation-based treatment (MBT), cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) and compassion-focused therapy (CFT). My main specialism is CBT, which has a robust evidence base and is a very accessible, intuitive and practical type of psychological therapy. Depending on the nature of your difficulty, we may decide to incorporate elements of CAT, MBT, or CFT into a cognitive behavioural approach. All of these theories and techniques are only effective in the context of a strong therapeutic partnership, and I place a great deal of importance on building a safe, supportive relationship with you from the first session.

In order to maintain the highest quality and standards, I undertake regular clinical supervision, continuing professional development and training. I adhere to the professional codes of ethics and conduct set out by the British Psychological Society and Health and Care Professions Council, and am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which is responsible for the enforcement of the Data Protection Act 1998.
