Although I work from an eclectic stance, I lean primarily towards the Positive Psychology perspective and draw particularly on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques often used within a Solution Focused frame.
I acknowledge and appreciate that there is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to mental health and pride myself on my adaptability in the therapy space and my ability to draw on the relevant skills and approaches to best suit different clients and their needs.
Regardless of the client or the issue at hand my work is underpinned by an unwavering level of respect, unconditional positive regard, non-judgement and empathy.
Although I work with most areas within my scope of practice- my areas of focus include the following:
- The maintenance of diagnosed disorders especially anxiety, depression, and eating related.
- Stress, self-esteem and self-improvement.
- The adolescent demographic and the challenges faced over this time (ages 13-18).
- The general enhancement of overall emotional and mental wellbeing.
