What kind of therapy?

If you are here then you know that something needs to change...


Perhaps you have a list of problems or just one? 


Has your GP suggested talking therapy for low mood, stress, PTSD, burnout or dealing with the pressures of a challenging career or home life? 

Have you been dealing with unexplained infertility and the challenges of trying to conceive? 

Are you snappy and irritable with loved ones, your children or your colleagues?

Is your health beginning to suffer because you have been ignoring your needs for so long?

Have you been avoiding dealing with upsetting events in your past because you hoped you would feel better with time?


We have one life and everyone deserves it to be as good as it can be. That's what I'm here for.


I can help. In my many roles over the years I have worked with almost every kind of problem. I have also learnt over the years that many things are connected.


You may also have that same intuition about your own problems?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT was developed by psychologist Aaron Beck. It works on the basis that thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behavioural choices are all connected. Changing one delivers impacts into the others. 

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

IFS was developed by family therapist Richard Schwartz. He noticed that individuals have 'inner worlds' that mirror the ways a family might function. He noticed people develop parts that can 'manage things' and other parts that might represent 'child' states, or wounded feelings like shame, guilt or anger. It is an evidence-based psychotherapy, helping people heal by finding and healing their protective and wounded inner parts. 


Milton Erickson is considered the father of hypnotherapy. He was an American doctor and psychologist and pioneered many of the hypnotherapy techniques used today. Several psychology schools of thought including psychotherapy and behaviourism influenced his work and clients enjoy listening to tailormade recordings to embed changes. 


I incorporate various models from traditional psychotherapy in my work. I draw on attachment therapy to help clients overcome problems that have their root in childhood. Attachment theory explores how one’s childhood experiences might impact their ability to form meaningful bonds as adults. 


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a powerful treatment developed by the psychologist Francine Shapiro. It is an intervention that enables people to resolve the emotional distress and lasting physical symptoms and that are the result of disturbing life experiences. It is effective on major traumas and adverse events and also smaller 'defining moments' which have had a significant impact on you. Repeated studies show that EMDR can achieve results with a wide range of presenting problems, not just PTSD. Studies included significantly effective outcomes with a range of problems clients often struggle with including panic attacks, phobias, depression, and other anxiety problems.


Mindfulness skills enable you to notice when you are getting caught up in your thoughts and to create a 'pause'. This 'pause' enables you to consider how you want to respond to this moment. It can instil a better tolerance for emotions, and more resilience to ride the waves of daily stresses, frustrations and irritations. This practice, in turn, helps build foundations to withstand bigger emotional storms when they come.  I also use mindfulness skills for ‘attention training’ and to live more fully in the moment.

Positive Psychology

Positive psychology is focused on improving well-being. Therapy promotes happiness, growth, resilience, hope, strength, and psychological development. This approach is immensely helpful in finding a direction which will cultivate fulfilment.

Coaching Psychology

Many clients are unsure if they need life coaching or therapy. Coaching is a term used when someone empowers their client to make positive changes in their life. 'Psychological Intervention' is not the focus of coaching. Coaching is best thought of as future focused rather than past-focused. It is a way to help people make changes they initiate themselves. Supporting ongoing change is a part of coaching. Often after a period of therapy people choose to continue with coaching to maintain progress and work to new life goals. 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT was developed by psychologist Steven Hayes. It is a 'here and now' treatment model which enables people to live their life with a flexibility that creates freedom, fulfilment and opportunity for connections with others.  It draws on resilience-based treatments, mindfulness and cognitive and behavioural models. 

Compassion-focused therapy

Compassion-focused therapy was developed by UK psychologist Paul Gilbert. It uses an emotion-regulation model and teaches people skills to connect to others and feel safe and soothed. It is especially useful for people who have a strong inner critic and incorporates elements of Buddhism. 

Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT®) 

RTT is a powerful protocol developed by the psychotherapist Marisa Peer. This protocol is unique in many ways as it combines powerful psychotherapy within the vehicle of hypnosis, enabling several sessions' worth of traditional therapy to be achieved in one powerful extended session. It is suitable for any issue that you as the client believes has some psychological component.
