About me

Hello, thank you for taking time to look at my website.  I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and a qualified Relationship Psychotherapist with over 20 years of working with individuals with psychological and emotional difficulties.  I have worked in a variety of settings including NHS Primary Care Services and Relate Counselling Services providing Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), short term solution focused therapy.  I trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist in 2009 and offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and EMDR both of which are recommended by National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of depression and anxiety problems.  I work  for a third sector organsisation offering CBT/EMDR therapy keeping my professional skills and supervision requirements up to date.

My professional qualifications: 

  • Fully Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (BABCP)   

  • Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Interventions - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • EMDR Practitioner (Parts 1-3)

  • Relate Relationship and Theory Certificate

I continue to maintain my continued professional development (CPD) and maintain  CBT accreditation with the BABCP by attending conferences, workshops and clinical supervision. I have regular CBT clinical supervision and place great value in this and recognise the importance of developing my practice and knowledge in order to provide effective therapy. I am fully insured and for details of my professional membership and accreditation  please visit www.babcp.com.

In my free time I love to be in the outdoors, especially where the view includes rivers or oceans.  I love caravanning, spending time with family/friends, music events, spa weekends and enjoy 'being in the moment'.

 
 

 Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is an evidence based short term psychological therapy with a significantly robust research base. It is a very structured and practical approach helping people resolve problems by focusing upon changing unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours which undermine self confidence and can lead to depression and anxiety. Whilst CBT acknowledges our early experiences and how our presenting problems can originate in childhood, it works very much in the 'here and now'. The basic premise of CBT is that our thoughts and behaviours affect how we feel. CBT helps you change and develop new behaviours and skills for life. CBT has developed in the last 30 years and now includes approaches such as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and compassion focused therapy (CFT). These can be incorporated into your individualised therapy.

CBT sessions are weekly (typically) and last 60 minutes in duration and can help with the following problems:

 

  • Depression and low mood

  • Worry and generalised anxiety disorder 

  • Panic and stress

  • Low self esteem and self confidence issues

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder 

  • Social anxiety and performance anxiety

  • Health anxiety

  • Body dysmorphic disorder 

What to expect of our CBT sessions:-

The main factors behind CBT is that by challenging our thoughts and behaviours we can ultimately change the way we feel about situations and break the 'vicious cycle'.  CBT is very logical and practical identifying goals and each session is purposefully structured to help you work towards them and challenge unhelpful thinking styes and behaviours.  This is a key part of CBT and why it works well.

CBT may not be suitable/appropriate for you if :-

  • You cannot attend on a regular basis

  • You lack time in between sessions for assignments

  • You want to work or offload the past

  • You consider working on your problems would increase any risk or harm to yourself or others

EMDR

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing

EMDR is an acronym for eye movement desensitisation reprocessing and is a powerful psychological treatment method. EMDR therapy is an eight-phase approach that identifies and processes memories of negative and traumatic events that contribute to present problems.

Most of the time your body and mind manage new information and experiences without your awareness. However, when something out of the ordinary happens and you are traumatised by an event such as a car accident or repeatedly being subject to distress (e.g. childhood trauma), your natural coping mechanisms can overload. This can result in disturbing experiences being frozen in your brain remaining 'unprocessed' and stored in a raw and emotional form rather than in a narrative story. EMDR helps create the connections between your brain's memory networks using bi-lateral stimulation, enabling your brain to process the traumatic event in a very natural way that you are in control of. Once past memories are processed they become resolved and people achieve a sense of safety and peace.

Sessions are typically 60-75 minutes in duration and can help with the following problems:

 

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Traumatic grief/bereavement

  • Childhood trauma

  • Distressing memories

  • Phobias 

  • Anxiety problems linked to a past distressing experience

 

Relationship Counselling

This approach helps to explore an individuals patterns of behaviour and communication styles within  the relationship context. Through this exploratory approach it helps to face past relational experiences which may be unresolved and which may be playing out in a current relationship. Learning from family and early childhood can influence change in the way we respond and interact in present day relationships. The relational model encompasses the three components, exploration, understanding and action.  Counselling helps with:

  • Grief

  • Bereavement

  • Separation and divorce

  • Relational conflict

  • Assertiveness

  • Low self esteem
