Therapeutic Approaches

I use a wide range of approaches when working with clients. Please see below if you would like to know more.

Integrative Psychotherapy

As I am trained in several types of therapy I can tailor my approach to you. I like to use an integrative approach because it embraces the value of each individual as unique by combining different forms of psychotherapy to create an approach to therapy which responds appropriately and effectively to all aspects of you. This approach enables me to assess your difficulties and challenges and, with you, develop an understanding of the change you hope to achieve using the approaches best suited to you. I endeavour to keep our therapeutic relationship at the centre of my practice. successful therapeutic work.

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a unique, powerful therapy that helps people recover from problems triggered by traumatic events in their lives. It stops difficult memories causing so much distress by helping the brain to reprocess them properly. EMDR is best known for treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and it can also help with a range of mental health conditions.

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT involves us working collaboratively. This therapy aims to help you understand the relationship between your thoughts, behaviours and feelings. Once we have worked together to reach a full understanding of the problem, we then agree on tasks which you may experiment with in order to identify the techniques that work most effectively for you. Possible tasks include writing thought diaries, confronting and modifying negative thoughts and experimenting with different behaviours.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy offers you a regular time to talk about yourself, as well as your past and present relationships, focusing on the influence that unconscious processes have on your present behaviour. The goal of Psychodynamic Therapy is to improve your self-awareness, enabling you to gain insight into the influence of your past on your present behaviour. This can help to show you how some of the things that you feel, do and say are not driven by your conscious thoughts and feelings but by unconscious feelings from your past. When you understand these connections better, you can make decisions based on what you want or need now, not what your past experiences drive you to do.


I teach clients mindfulness as a way of becoming more aware of the present moment, including getting in touch with moment-to-moment changes in their mind and their bodies. It can help clients to learn to notice certain habits of mind which are present in anxiety and depression and to develop a new relationship to them. Mindfulness can help people to halt the escalation of negative thoughts and teach them to focus on the present moment, rather than reliving the past or pre-living the future.
