My Skills


I am an experienced mental health nurse and also a fully accredited Psychotherapist, offering both CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing)


I am also skilled in utilising Solution Focussed Therapy skills within the context of a supportive counselling approach.


In addition to these psychological therapy skills I am a fully trained and insured Reiki Master, and can integrate this powerful energy healing treatment into agreed plans of care if requested.


I can provide psychological interventions to help with the following areas:


Depression

Anxiety 

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Trauma

Health Anxiety

Social Anxiety

Bereavement 

Carer Stress


Mental Health Assessment: I have considerable experience working with Severe Mental Illnesses and also dementia, and so am able to identify symptoms that may indicate that someone is experiencing a more serious mental illness that would require additional specialist support from secondary mental health services.
