I began around 9 years ago working with people at risk of suicide. I have since worked in the NHS, private and charity sectors. My experience has included working with anxiety, relationship issues, OCD, depression, anger & rage, substance misuse and bereavement. I have also worked within a Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy model, which considers core ways of responding and reacting to significant others, facilitating new or pre-existing ways to relate.
My training was in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural (CBT) and
person-centred approaches to counselling & psychotherapy. I have since worked with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and circumstances. I have attended many trainings, conferences, workshops and seminars on wellbeing and relationships and keep up to date with the latest research and developments. I have also undertaken research on the topics of gender, language acquisition and autistic spectrum conditions.
