  • Managing anxiety related issues and panic attacks
  • Reducing self-harm and suicidal ideation in teenagers
  • Improving self-esteem and confidence
  • Developing healthy stress management strategies
  • Support for grief and trauma
  • Depression management

I am proficient in using a range of evidence-based psychological therapies, including:

  • Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Exposure with Response Prevention
  • Behavioural Activation
  • Motivational Interviewing

As each individual and each problem is unique, my approach to counselling is often a blend of different evidence-based strategies to tailor a therapeutic experience that feels engaging and specifically targets the things you want to change. It is my hope that I can work with you to manage current difficulties and emotional distress, and assist you to develop a range of healthy coping strategies that empower you to achieve and sustain good mental health for a better lifestyle. I take an empathic and enthusiastic approach to create a comforting environment to discuss important issues.
