I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Counsellor. I specialise in Attachment Informed EMDR; I find this approach to EMDR really powerful as it allows us to access the root of our current difficulties by processing unresolved memories; this frees us from past unhelpful beliefs and coping strategies.
I also have particular interests in ACT and Compassion Focussed therapy.
I have been working solely online now since March 2020; I have found that online therapy, particularly EMDR, is equally as effective as if we were sat in a room together. For many clients it can feel more relaxed to access therapy from a comfortable and familiar environment; also there is no stress of having to get somewhere on time.
I work collaboratively with my clients so that together we can understand what the problem is and how we can support you to make the changes you need to move forward. I aim to support my clients to thrive in whatever your life circumstances may be and to feel more confident managing any future challenges that may lie ahead.
I have worked as a therapist for over 10 years in various settings. I specialise in working with trauma, anxiety disorders including panic, phobias, General Anxiety Disorder and OCD.
I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I abide by their code of ethics at all times: http://www.bacp.co.uk/.
