Types of Problem
I am experienced in working with people who have either a recognised mental health problem, or who are experiencing difficulties as a result of psychological, emotional or relationship issues. The approach I take is very much tailored to the individual person and the nature of the problem that they are experiencing.
Please see Box 1 for a list of some of the problems that I have experience of working with. If you would like to know whether I have worked with the specific issues that you wish to address in therapy, please click here for my contact details and I will be more than happy to discuss this with you.
A consistent finding from research is that there are two critical factors that contribute to successful outcomes in therapy: the type of therapy approach that is used, and the strength of the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist.
I use an evidence-based form of therapy known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which has been found to be effective with a wide range of problems (please click here for further information). ACT works by helping people to develop new ways of responding to their thoughts and feelings so that they can live more rich and meaningful lives.
I approach my work as a therapist with humility and a genuine sense of compassion towards others. My aim is to develop a relationship with clients in which they feel they are listened to, respected, and understood.
