|Bio:||I provide in-depth counselling and psychotherapy. With over 30 years of experience in mental health care I am well qualified and experienced to help people with a wide range of mental and emotional difficulties such as anxiety (e.g. social anxiety, agoraphobia, OCD), depression, low self-esteem, and personality/relationship difficulties. My experience is in both individual and group therapy.
I was previously the Clinical Director of the ADHB psychotherapy service - for 20+ years; as such I think I have a fairly unique experience in joint leadership/management/clinical roles and I enjoy providing supervision (both clinical and management) to other health professionals.
I see men and women for both short and longer-term psychotherapy. I use an integrative approach having had training & experience in a wide range of therapies including: Narrative Therapy, Psychodrama, Transactional Analysis (TA), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT), Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
