Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (T.A) this means I am able to focus on the well being of the person, and how the influences of their past affect the here and now.
I have also 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 CBT compliments psychotherapy and works well with in short term solution-focused therapy.
A mindfulness approach works well with individual suffering with obsessional thoughts, overthinking and anxiety bringing relief to symptoms and produces tangible results you can see when logging the progress in the form of a therapy diary.
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 to the therapy room may have begun, and help you on the road to recovery.
I work with individuals and couples and groups 18+ providing a secure, confidential environment to find a positive way forward.
