The kind of therapy I use
I use CBT to work with emotional issues in a very practical way, helping people to develop strategies to cope. I combine this with third wave approaches such as compassion focused therapy, mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy.
I work with adults who have the following problems:
• anxiety & stress e.g. generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, OCD, social anxiety
• feeling sad or depressed including low self-esteem
• expat issues e.g. adjusting to a different culture, missing home, managing long distance relationships
• workplace issues e.g. work-related stress, bullying
• neurodevelopmental disorders e.g. ADHD, Tic Disorder/Tourettes
• chronic medical illness or long term health conditions
