I began practicing in 1999 and qualified as a therapist in 2001. The model of therapy I use is known as Integrative and brings together a range of therapies in a coherent appropriate manner.
This model recognises that there is not a “one size fits all” approach and that there is greater benefit in drawing on other theoretical models when responding to the needs of the client.
I draw on person-centred, transactional analysis, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution focussed approaches.
I am committed to continuing professional development and attend regular training and workshops to inform and broaden my practice.
I am BACP Registered and I undergo regular clinical supervision and hold full insurance in line with BACP guidelines for best practice.
As well as working in general practice, I have particular knowledge, experience and expertise in the following:
