I am an adult mental health specialist. I practise CBT i.e. cognitive behaviour therapy, the mainstream evidence-based approach in the UK. Therapy tends to be brief, often 6 – 20 sessions, and is goal-directed. The emphasis is on developing self-help skills, and results are obtained by understanding how our thoughts and interpretations of events can have a dramatic impact on how we feel and behave. Clients are supported to consider and try out different ways of thinking and behaving.
I am also influenced by other models of psychotherapy, and I have received training in IPT (Interpersonal Therapy), meditation techniques, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). I lean towards holistic practice, and I am interested in exercise and nutrition and their effects on emotional well-being. I am comfortable discussing and sharing ideas about spirituality and one’s meaning and purpose in life.
