I have experience of working with people with anxiety, panic, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. If you don’t identify with this list then don’t worry, it’s just a brief summary.
I am experienced in a wide variety of psychological interventions, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Schema Therapy, however, I tend to use an integrative approach. This means I do not rely on one approach, I tailor my intervention to best suit the needs of my individual clients. I also believe having a good therapeutic relationship, compassion and at times humour, are very important in therapy.
Everyone is different, and anxiety can present itself in different ways to different people. An athlete may find it’s affecting their performance which has a knock on effect on their mood and relationships. A school teacher may find that the stress has impacted on their tolerance to the extent they even the noise in the class has become overwhelming. For others, anxiety can lead us to avoid people, places and situations to the point where our world becomes smaller and smaller and we feel lonely and more vulnerable.
Anyone can experience difficult life events and it’s not unusual to be stressed at those times, however, sometimes the stress just doesn’t pass and we need help to adjust and move forward.
If you would like to book an appointment, I am happy to have a chat on the phone to make sure that I can help and that I am the right person for you. Appointments last approximately 50 minutes and we will agree on a treatment plan that works best for you.
