Before working as a full time psychotherapist, I was a senior clinical nurse specialist in psychological medicine, working in hospitals and community mental health. I have practiced in most areas of psychiatry including adult, adolescents, older adults, forensic and personality disorder services. I believe that my extensive clinical experience along with my psychotherapy training gives my patients the feeling that they are being treated by someone who really cares about their mental well being.
As a therapist, I encourage the use of compassionate thinking.Only by being compassionate and acceptance of ourselves and others are we able to seek a more positive and fulfilling lives.
I help people with a broad range of problems Including: The list is not exhaustive but these are the most common presentations.
- obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD),
- relationship problems,
- sleep disturbance,
- post-traumatic stress disorder.
