Client Group
I work with older children, adolescents and adults. I offer individual, couple or family therapy

Therapeutic Approach
My main approach is cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT); this is widely accepted as an effective therapy and the treatment of choice in the British National Health Service. I also use tools from other therapeutic methods, such as systemic therapy, when this is appropriate and particularly when working with couples and families. Therapeutic work is highly individual and following careful assessment will be developed according to the clients personal needs

Experience
I have worked in a large UK NHS hospital for eight years, in an outpatient psychology service. I also have experience with inpatient mental health care and providing assessment and therapy in GP practices for mild to moderate difficulties. I have worked in older adult psychology services and have been involved in the neuropsychological testing process for dementia. I have taught on Postgraduate psychology programmes at British Universities. I also ran workshops and groups in the NHS for anxiety management, phobias and OCD.

Other interests
I have a particular interest in the area of trauma and was involved in a trauma group within the NHS. I am a qualified EMDR practitioner (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) and can offer this type of therapy for cases of post traumatic stress disorder. I use Virtual Reality tools to treat phobias and introduce relaxation and mindfulness.
