Psychological Therapy

My background is in treating clients and patients with a wide range of mental health problems and I have significant experience with complex trauma in an NHS Complex Care Team, the Military and Private Practice, working with clients with often complex problems, to overcome their distress, reconnect with their lives, and do more of things that matter to them, in the way they want to. I specialise in working with members of the uniformed services community  to address problems related to trauma and moral injury.

Common difficulties that I help people address include...

  • PTSD & Complex PTSD (C-PTSD)

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Health Anxiety

  • Social Anxiety

  • Panic Disorder

  • Phobias

  • Agoraphobia

  • Depression

  • Grief & Bereavement

  • Moral Injury

  • Burnout

The list is not exhaustive and many people may be struggling with mix of difficulties that do not fit neatly into a particular diagnosis. I have experience working with a wide range of mental health difficulties, and with complex presentations, including those related to trauma, PTSD and moral injury, utilising a range of evidence based, proven approaches, based on highly individualised psychological assessment and formulation. In our initial assessment, we will build an understanding of your unique difficulties and decide together the approach that may best address them, drawn from the following psychological approaches, in order to meet your goals for our work together. 

CBT: 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence based structured therapy, recognising how past experience influences our beliefs about the world, ourselves, and others, and how those beliefs interact with our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, to maintain the symptoms of psychological problems and limit our ability to live as we wish in the present.  CBT can be helpful either as a short term therapy, focused on specific problems such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Attacks, Health Anxiety, Depression, Generalised Anxiety, and PTSD, or as a long-term therapy where problems are complex or are long-standing.

ACT:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is evidence-based transdiagnostic (able to be applied across specific diagnoses) therapy helps people learn strategies to live life more in the present, more focused on important values and goals, and less caught up in painful thoughts, feelings and experiences. It helps people learn to replace unworkable control and avoidance strategies, that maintain their difficulties and place unnecessary limits on their lives, with new strategies to become more psychologically flexible and more able to consistently engage in life enhancing behaviours to improve their lives. 

CFT: 

Compassion Focused Therapy is a transdiagnostic (able to be applied across specific diagnoses) It aims to help people develop compassionate toward themselves and other people. It is particularly helpful for people who struggle with excessive self-criticism or shame based problems drawing on theory and technique from a range of evidence based psychological modalities.

EMDR: 

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is an evidence-based psychotherapy that uses bilateral eye movements to aid the re-processing of  traumatic memories that significantly impact the present. It is particularly effective in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex-PTSD (multiple traumatic events) as well as other persistent problems with a strong connection to traumatic experiences.
