My approach is integrative and relational, I am committed to meeting the needs of the individuals I work with at emotional depth. I offer a safe, reassuring, understanding and non-judgemental approach.
I integrate several different models of therapy into my practice to meet the needs of my clients. Theoretical integration involves blending different counselling principles, approaches and techniques. For me this includes Psychodynamic Relational therapy and contemporary applications of attachment. I offer skills in mindful awareness and a Compassion Focused Approach (CFT) which can help to support clients to make difficult changes and adjustments. Where appropriate I introduce Third Wave Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I work in the public and private sector offering short and long term therapy. I currently run a private practice and have delivered counselling in universities, higher education colleges, charities, work-based employee assist programmes and counselling platforms including Dr Julian, Lifeworks, Betterhelp and Health Assured.
