Hi, I offer compassion and care in helping you overcome your problem or situation. Not all issues require the removal or treatment of everyday stressors or the routine ups and downs life brings. Motivating a healthy pursuit of positive emotions which in the field of Positive Psychology is refered to as the active cultivation of positive emotions is a significant contributor to our well-being.
This blended with appropriate therapy aimed at the individual's needs is integral to my approach.
I have over 30yrs of experience and qualifications in numerous intervention methods eg. Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Narrative therapy, Strategic therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Motivational Therapy, Coaching and Positive Psychology etc.
I have also trained/supervised numerous other health professionals. My expertise has been with all varieties of adult problems/diagnoses/situations as well as running group therapy programs, providing life coaching and judiciously using humour...which all equips me to use more than a one size fits all service. In addition I have had the privilege of learning from my clients, and I abide by a professional code of conduct and ethics.
MY SERVICE GUARANTEE: I aim to provide you with the best service I can because your welfare and wellbeing are important to me. To this end, I provide a free email follow up to initial chat sessions. As part of my quality assurance I request you leave an appropriate rating and comment after your chat or email session.
