  • Time-limited and goal-oriented - we will agree on a timeframe and goals for therapy to ensure that we are clear about what we are working towards.

  • Evidence-based - I work using models of therapy that have evidence for effectiveness, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Compassion-Focussed Therapy (CFT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness. I am also trained in the use of Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
