Problems I can help you with
Anxiety, panic attacks, phobias
Difficulty regulating emotions
Adjustment to life changes and transitions
How deep my understanding of these issues is
I have been interested in psychology for as long as I can remember and most of my working life has been dedicated to understanding and supporting people experiencing mental health challenges.
I have been working in private practice at The Glow Centre since 2019 and prior to that, I worked for many years in community services in the UK and Australia, assisting people with a variety of complex needs.
I enjoy the challenge of the constantly evolving science that is psychology, and strive to continuously grow and learn to keep up to date with the latest developments and research.
How I can help you
I will work collaboratively with you on the things that are important to you and I will stay focused on our goals.
My preferred approaches are CBT, DBT, CPT and Schema Therapy, and I will tailor my approach to your specific needs.
What does your involvement look like?
Knowing what you want to work on and having some goals in mind
Willingness to explore origins of problems and understand patterns
Willingness to try new ways of thinking and doing outside of sessions
