I have worked in the field of psychological health since 1982, successfully providing therapy to children, young people, adults and families. I have extensive experience of addressing mental health difficulties at every level of complexity in inpatient and outpatient NHS settings, and in the independent sector.
I am affiliated to a number of insurance companies and Health Insurance Providers to provide therapy, and to Employee Assistance Programmes to enable rehabilitation into the workplace following injury or ill health.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation are interventions recommended by the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE), and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a collaborative intervention which requires you to work between sessions to collect evidence of what happens when you think or behave in a particular way. You might be asked to record in diary form what has happened with regard to the issue we are working to address. Often described as a talking therapy, CBT is more accurately a talking and doing (behavioural) therapy. Together the therapist and the client design behavioural experiments which you would put into practice between sessions, and changes can be measured so it can be readily seen how therapy is working.
Sometimes a person may ask for help when he or she has experienced events they do not want to talk out loud about. Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) does not require you to go into detail; it is possible to process disturbing memories without having to discuss distressing aspects of the past. EMDR is effective in addressing emotional stuck points as well as major traumas and may produce results more rapidly than other forms of therapy.
I strive to provide only what would be good enough for my own children or loved ones, were they to be on the receiving end! I am an evidence-based practitioner who attends regular courses and receives excellent clinical supervision from Accredited and Consultant practitioners in order to continue to offer first class therapy to adults, children and young people.
