Special interest areas
I have extensive experience and specialise in working with social anxiety, low self-esteem and ADHD.
I use evidence-based methods in terms of what works on specific issues.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy helps people change unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that maintain their issues, such as anxiety, phobias and depression.
Schema Therapy helps people understand long-term patterns, so they can learn to better meet their emotional needs.
Compassion Focused Therapy helps people overcome shame, excessive self-criticism and low self-esteem.
A Solution Focused approach permeates the way I work by motivating clients to work towards positive goals, rather than getting lost in problems.
Positive Psychology helps people harness strengths, qualities and values to overcome challenges and build resilience.
I empower clients to make positive changes, by giving them the tools to overcome problems, and maintain their gains in the future. I work in a collaborative way with clients where together we make sense of why they are stuck in the present and how we achieve their goals.
