I am an experienced clinician and supervisor with 24 years of experience since qualification in both NHS and private settings. I am registered and regulated by the British Psychological Society, Health Care Professions Council and Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapists. I completed training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy shortly after qualification, and I’m currently training in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy with Dr Sharon Lewis.
I have extensive experience in treating a broad range of emotional difficulties including anxiety disorders, depression, relationship difficulties, work stress, problems with emotional regulation, self harm and adjustment to change. This long experience means I’m particularly excited to be using ISTDP to help clients understand and recognise their own emotional processes more clearly and to help them overcome the unconscious emotional blocks that may be causing distressing symptoms and preventing them from moving forwards, and that may unwittingly get in the way of recovery using other therapeutic techniques.
