I work mainly from a Cognitive Behavioural Approach and also have trained and gained experience utilising hypnotherapy, person centred, transactional analysis, solution focused and NLP approaches. Initial experience working in the field of domestic abuse included working with complex co-existing issues. I have also gained experience with dependency issues and duel diagnosis. I volunteer with the Liverpool Hearing Voices Network group, this has allowed me to gain invaluable experience working with more challenging Mental Health and Emotional issues.I am happy to help with any challenges a new client presents. I have a special interest in anxiety related issues, affective issues (depression, mood, anger) and psychosis. I also, have a special understanding of working with issues arising from exposure to the Armed and Emergency Forces.I work from a social model of emotional health; that is I believe our problems originate far more from what has happened to us, than some genetic impairment we were born with. To this end I feel our life experience has compelled us to learn certain coping strategies to get to where we are now and, what has been learned can be unlearned – and changed.
