I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and a Cognitive Analytic Therapy Practitioner based in Wiltshire. I have over 10 years experience of working with people experiencing emotional and relational difficulties. Many people have difficult experiences and feelings at some stage in life and this can have a significant impact on the person’s life. Sometimes people find that they can identify a trigger to feelings of distress and for others this can seem to ‘come out of the blue’. My approach is warm, empathic, and non-judgemental. I work collaboratively with individuals to help them come to a deeper understanding of their experiences, emotions, and reactions, and to help them develop strategies to reduce and manage difficult feelings and patterns of behaviour. I am passionate about helping people work towards a life that they feel is more satisfying and in line with their values, goals and aspirations. I offer therapy to people encountering the following difficulties (although this list is not exhaustive): anxiety, phobias, panic, health anxiety, social anxiety, stress, depression, low mood, anger, feelings of shame, low self esteem, identity issues, bereavement, trauma, ‘feeling stuck’, feeling unfulfilled and dissatisfied with life, repeating unwanted patterns, relationship difficulties, and difficulties at work. I am unable to offer therapy to people who are suicidal, actively self harming, are experiencing psychosis, have difficulties with substance use, or who are at immediate risk. I have completed doctoral level training in a range of different psychological therapies and extensive post doctoral continued professional development. I have undertaken training in cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), compassion focused therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitisation reprocesing (EMDR), narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, neuropsychology, and health psychology. I also draw on person centred, systemic, and psychodynamic approaches. I offer therapy via videocalling and telephone across the UK during weekdays and evenings. I am not offering face to face appointment currently but I ordinarily offer appointments at: The Arch Clinic, Highfield House, Bartons Road, Fordingbridge, Hampshire, SP61JD. https://www.archclinic.co.uk/index.html
