Find me on 'Psychology Today'
I am an Integrative Therapist & Trainer drawing on the Mindful, Cognitive Behavioural and Humanistic schools of theory.
Mindfulness is based on the idea that If we can change the way we ‘think’ and change the way we ‘behave’ then it follows quite logically, that we will change the way we ‘feel’.
Feel Emotions; Think Thoughts; Behaviour
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy helps to identify and change self defeating or irrational beliefs and behaviours, by challenging and altering negative and distorted ways of thinking.
Person Centred Theory is used to build a trusting, empathic accepting and genuine working relationship between therapist and client or workshop attendees. A person centred process involves listening, thinking together, coaching, sharing ideas, and seeking feedback.
My Client Group
As a Therapist & Trainer, I work with adults, parents, adolescents and organisations for an agreed period of time or on an open-ended basis with the aim of enabling the enhancement of work balance & initiatives, meet objectives and move forward rewardingly.
I work with individuals with a broad range of emotional, psychological and mental health difficulties which are impacting on their day to day lives and relationships, such as depression and anxiety.
I work with people who have suffered a traumatic experience who may be suffering from post traumatic stress, flashbacks to the event, as well as fear and anxiety on a daily basis.
Therapy supports a person to express their feelings and tell their story with someone they can trust enabling them to make informed choices, develop a positive attitude, whilst building confidence and self-esteem in order to feel better about themselves.
I deliver various quality assurance and self development workshops face to face or via video link.
Workshops are based to provide tangible training that the trainee can take away and apply almost immediately in their day to day working environment..
