I offer specialist assessment and psychological therapy for a range of difficulties, including:
Anxiety Depression Fears and phobias Trauma Grief Loss and bereavement Work related stress Adjustment to significant life events Parenting stress Family and relationship difficulties Low self-esteem and confidence issues
I specialise in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which has proved to be effective for a wide range of problems. ACT works by helping you build a life worth living whilst teaching you a set of skills to help you handle painful experiences so they have less impact and influence over you.
I also draw on a range of other evidence based models to develop an agreed plan with you – based on an understanding of your individual needs and circumstances, the difficulties you would like to work on and the outcomes you would like to achieve. Some of the other therapeutic approaches I use are: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) Positive Psychology Mindfulness
