I'm an adolescent and adult Clinical Psychologist with a focus on emotions, relationships and mindfulness. I have a patient, practical and non-judgemental approach and enjoy working collaboratively to figure out how difficulties have come into being and how to prevent them from sticking around and/or returning.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy and mindfulness
ACT, CBT, DBT, Schema Therapy, Trauma-Informed
Practical and pragmatic with an emotion focus as needed. Patient, non-judgemental and validating.

My overarching view is that we are a small team (the client, myself, GP and others) working together to understand the situation, trial evidence-based approaches (that may not have been tried before) and prevent the return of problems.
