Professional profile

Availablity: Shawfair - Thursday mornings

A range of therapeutic models informs my practice, including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and schema focussed therapy. I also have specialist training and skills in cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) and is currently training in eye-movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR). I takes a gentle and supportive approach in therapy and works together with individuals to explore which approach may be best suited to their needs.
