I studied at Oxford University and qualified in 2016 as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and I have been in private practice in Hebden Bridge, where I live, since then. I work mainly with adults but have worked with children (CAMHS) for the NHS in 2017.
I hold a degree with Honours in Psychology, and I’m a fully qualified Re-Evaluation Counselor. I have completed training in attachment theory in adults and an 18 month training in supervision (Brighton University).
I am a Graduate member of the British Psychological Society, ( BPsS) and am a member of the British Association Of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
I have specialist experience of working with adults who self-medicate using alcohol or non-prescription drugs in order to manage their mental health. I have worked alongside drug and alcohol misuse services in order to help people with these problems.
I have also have experience working with athletes, including helping people to get more out of their sport by conquering performance fears, and working with steroid users who wish to decrease or to stop using artificial enhancements.
I live in Hebden Bridge and fully appreciate the beautiful scenery and the perspective that is gained by walking or cycling up a hill !
Cognitive behaviour therapy helps people explore their assumptions about themselves, others, and their world, in order to regain a balanced perspective and a rational viewpoint. I gain enormous satisfaction from helping people to regain full pleasure from their lives.
