Training, qualifications & experience
My training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (T.A) focuses on the well being of the person, and how the influences of the past affect the here and now.
I have recently qualified in Contemporary approaches within Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) such as Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and person-centred therapy, allowing for a more integrated approach to problems.
CBT works well with anxiety or depression looking at the cognitive side of the problem e.g., how thoughts affect feelings, and how feelings affect behaviour using this alongside. CBT works well with short term solution-focused therapy.
A mindfulness approach works well with obsessional thoughts, overthinking and anxiety and can bring relief to symptoms when used as a part of the therapy alongside a therapy diary and meditation.
Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) work well with symptoms of low self-esteem and is a gentle approach to problems allowing for a better understanding of where beliefs began.
The person-centred approach puts you the client at the heart of the therapy and helps me to understand your story.
Psychotherapy can bring insight to help you understand where the issue you bring may have begun, and help you on the road to recovery.
I work with individuals and couples 18+ providing a secure, confidential environment to find a positive way forward.
I request from clients that online or phone therapy be attended in an environment that supports confidentiality and we will not be disturbed for 50 minutes.
