I believe that we are all capable of continued growth and change through a renewed understanding of our self, and others. My therapeutic approach is to promote wellbeing and empowerment through an understanding of inner struggle.
I am a Psychologist and Family Therapist in Clinical Practice, offering a range of evidenced based psychological services to people of all ages, who are seeking assistance for a variety of issues.
But what does this mean?
Using the foundations of Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Initiatic Art Therapy, and Animal Assisted Psychotherapy, I follow a person-centred focus by tailoring therapy to fit your needs. It is a holistic approach, working with the whole person and their world, rather than the just viewing the symptom.
I have an extensive work history in the field of Eating Disorders, where the therapeutic focus is on repairing the relationship with food and the body, while supporting nutritional rehabilitation. I’ve managed Day Programs, developed and facilitated Psycho Educational and Interpersonal Group Therapy Programs, and worked with people and their families to repair and strengthen relationships with loved ones who are struggling.
I have been a Psychologist since 2004, working in a variety of clinical settings. I work with people of all ages who are managing life’s transitions. I work with those who are experiencing or have experienced;
- Life-threatening medical conditions
- Trauma, grief and loss
- Attachment and relationship difficulties
- Stress and anxiety
- School refusal
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
In my personal life, I am an animal lover, artist and avid gardener. These passions keep me grounded. Alongside evidence, I have integrated them into my psychological program.
