I have worked for the majority of my career in HR and felt that I wanted to help individuals at a deeper level. So I retrained in CBT/REBT and have several diplomas in this field. I have worked with several charities and now have my own practice. I am fully insured and am an accredited member of both the National Counselling Society and National Hypnotherapy Society. I am a Reiki practitioner. I also currently work with Cruse as a bereavement support volunteer.
I specialise in CBT/REBT which is applicable and effective in treating a wide range of emotional problems including depression, anxiety, phobias, burnout and relationship difficulties. I have a particular interest in helping people cope with bereavement, including the loss of a beloved pet. I use integrative techniques such as ACT, CFT, Mindfulness and Hypnotherapy to name a few, when it is appropriate and useful for your treatment and progress.
I practice Reiki separately to talking therapies; this is a physical energy treatment which is also relaxing and restful for clients and can be used to help with physical and emotional \ailments.
I work predominantly in an REBT framework which involves identifying the demands and beliefs you hold which are driving your behaviours and emotional responses to situations and other people. However, I adapt this approach where needed for you, my client. I keep you and your needs at the forefront of our work together at all times;after all, this is your therapy and your path to recovery. In this respect, I will introduce such things as mindfulness, acceptance commitment therapy (ACT) and compassion-focused therapy (CFT) amongst other things where appropriate for you. I work face to face, some online work available.
