My Ethos

Working alongside clients , I examine the relationship between stress, activity, and the impact on mood, functioning, well being and quality of life. I work in a client- centred way, supporting the individual to set  achievable and realistic goals, examining their strengths, what   motivates them, and enabling  them to identify the obstacles to moving forward ; and implement positive change.​

By using a variety of evidence-based interventions and approaches, I can help you to identify symptoms of anxiety and low mood,  strengthen self  esteem, and build resilience for coping with life's pressures.    


Following on from an assessment of needs I will design you an individualised course of sessions, and by using practical techniques and strategies, and setting achievable targets, I will assist you in developing a more positive mindset and support you in developing a relapse prevention and staying well plan, enabling you to build inner resilience against day to day challenges and life’s unforeseen events.
