I worked as a Registered Nurse in the NHS for over 20 years and trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist in 2014, working in a range of settings including the NHS, with a range of psychological difficulties. I provide both short and long-term therapy and my approach integrates a range of effective therapeutic interventions tailored to meet the needs of the client. Within the private sector I work with adults with a range of psychological difficulties including anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, grief, health issues and relationship difficulties. I work with NHS clients affected by physical health issues.
I always approach my work from the perspective of the client, which means your therapy will be directed by your needs and preferences. The evidence-based therapies I integrate include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Attachment-based Psychotherapy.
