Extended Profile

I offer a non-judgemental relationship in a safe and confidential environment where issues and concerns can be openly discussed. I am a registered psychotherapist, relationship and sex therapist with years of experience working in the NHS, in private practice and Relate.
• Psychological therapy typically involves an assessment process where I seek to understand problems from the client’s perspective and how and why the particular difficulties evolved.
• My postgraduate training in counselling psychology is a research based perspective to therapy and integrates a number of theoretical models including cognitive & behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic (attachment theory), humanist or client centred therapy, existential therapy and neuropsychology.
• Individual therapy may involve one, some or all of the above approaches. This may involve helping a person to understand who they are, how they behave and what they would like to change and how to make those changes
• Psychosexual and Relationship therapy – Relationship therapy focuses on what each partner wants from and can give to each other without losing sight of the individual personality. This may include a variety of issues including understanding each other’s intimacy needs and improving communication. Psychosexual therapy focuses on any sexual concerns or problems that an individual or couple has without losing sight of the relationship. Psychosexual & relationship therapy is an integrative therapy.
• EMDR (eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proved effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardised protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR has helped many people of all ages relieve many types of psychological distress.
