How I work

Rather than working from one therapeutic model I draw on a range of evidence based approaches. This ensures that the approach meets your own unique needs. The main approaches I use are:

Narrative therapy

Explores the use of narratives in understand identity. Therapy aims to understand how problem saturated stories/identities are developed and working to identify preferred stories as a way of alleviating psychological distress.

Systemic therapy

Is interested in the interactions between different members of a system (usually the family) and how these patterns of interaction can maintain psychological difficulty. Therapist works with different members of the family (or with couples) to explore and understand these patterns of interaction and work to generate alternative more helpful ways of relating to one another.

Cognitive behavioural therapy

Focus on understanding and modifying unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that maintain psychological distress.
