I hold a degree in Occupational Therapy and the postgraduate diploma in Cognitive Analytic Therapy.
I have worked in healthcare for almost 20 years,
particularly with people who suffer mental health problems and those with chronic physical health challenges.
I have a sound knowledge of the various therapeutic interventions, approved for use within the NHS and recommended by NICE.
I draw on a range of practices, rooted in client-centered approaches, such as counselling, CBT, goal setting, solution focused and motivational interviewing techniques. I practice in a person-centred way, aiming to provide a scaffolding of support, which enables people to understand themselves better, to maintain their strengths and to deconstruct obstructions to their growth and wellness.
I hold a strong belief that our attitudes and experiences play a crucial role in achieving a sense of inner peace and mental and physical wellbeing. I believe that with a right approach and support change for the better is always possible. This conviction continues to nurture my enthusiasm and dedication for my work. I always aim to instil in individuals a sense of hope and to increase their ability to understand and manage their issues, finding ways of utilising their strengths as well as develop a greater sense of choice and responsibility for themselves. Every person has a right to fulfil their potential and purpose and I am dedicated to supporting my clients in achieving a better quality of life.
