I have experience working with a wide range of problems, issues and diagnoses, including all aspects of relationship difficulties, interpersonal struggles, grief and loss, depression, post/pre-natal depression, anxiety and trauma.
Also for the past five years I have developed and run a successful Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills group in a variety of community based facilities.
I specialise in working with people to develop a strong sense of self and understanding any recurrent negative patterns, which get in the way of living a full and successful life. These include, but are not limited to, anxiety, stress, family dynamics, post/pre-natal depression, trauma, sexual-abuse and identity issues.
My approach is interpersonal psychotherapy with some interpretive qualities. This involves working together to develop a strong working relationship that can encourage the onset of new growth and learning.

They are available for sessions in the office or alternatively via Skype online if you are not able to make it in. Head to the Contact Us page to get in touch and we can guide you from there.
