I specialise in working with individuals with various manifestations of anxiety and/or depression. This is often attributable to problems with adjustment to current, recent or more distant life events.
I am a published authority on CBT.
I have mental health care experience spanning nearly thirty years. The majority of my clinical work has been within the NHS.
I successfully completed one of the few Masters degrees in Cognitive Psychotherapy in the country (University of Brighton). This training qualified me to move into my current C.B.T. role, working with people with complex mental health problems.
The clients that I work with often have long-standing problems that have not responded to other treatment available through the NHS.
As a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist I am able to tailor my approach to the client's specific difficulties by using CBT principles such as collaboration and a formulation (rather than diagnostically) -driven treatment. My additional training has equipped me to draw on influences from other models of talking therapy. I am therefore able to take due account of both the emotional aspects of client's current problems and historical factors which may be resonating unhelpfully now.
In both my NHS and private work I have achieved a high success rate and many of my clients have been discharged from community mental health teams following my involvement. My clients have often made great strides emotionally but, more importantly, have become active and effective in managing their own psychological health.
I have helped clients from 17 to 90 years of age with a range of emotional difficulties.
