I am a Specialist Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with 10 years experience working within NHS Primary Care Psychology as a clinician, manager and supervisor. I was previously responsible for the clinical delivery and management of Talking Therapies at MIND Mental Health Charity, and still continue to provide supervision for their senior clinicians and management team. I am fully qualified and accredited with the BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies) as well as the EABCT (European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies).
My approach to talking therapy fosters a safe space to collaboratively explore presenting difficulties in a confidential and non-judgmental environment. Through change-focused treatment interventions I can support you on your journey to progress in a direction to meet your goals. The CBT treatment interventions I facilitate are evidence-based in line with the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for the treatment of common mental health difficulties. I am also passionate about working with diversity and difference in its many forms to thus allow my work to be inclusive to all.
Through treatment I hope to support you in exploring why you might be feeling a certain way, and identify cycles and patterns you may be stuck in that fuel mental health difficulties and presentations of anxiety/depression. Together we can learn strategies to approach triggering scenarios differently in order to break the vicious cycle and make tangible changes you can see in your day to day life. Through sessions, I aim to equip you with the tools and techniques to be independent in managing your own mental health and wellbeing.
