I am a creative therapist who always supports clients to develop a collaborative and individual treatment programme, drawing on skills from cognitive behavioural therapy/ CBT, mindfulness, compassion focused therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. 

CBT is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems. CBT cannot remove your problems, but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you crack this cycle by breaking down overwhelming problems into smaller parts and showing you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.

I am a fully accredited BABCP Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. I have over 9 years experience of work in this field with a range of adult groups over the age of 18. I have a special interest in men’s health and well-being. I completed my core psychology undergraduate degree before going on to complete two further postgraduate qualifications at The University of Manchester and at the world renowned Institute of Psychiatry – Kings College London, before becoming fully accredited by the BABCP. 

In my spare time I like to use mindfulness as a personal practice and as self care.
