Clinical Approach

Life by Choice Not by Chance

I take a broad and integrated approach to my clinical work and I maintain a keen interest in personal and professional development. I am informed by a range of psychological approaches and work from a wellness informed approach. I am trained and experienced in the following therapies:

  • Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness-based Cognitive therapy (MBCT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Body based Psychotherapies such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Hakomi: Mindful, Somatic Psychotherapy
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Schema Focused Therapy
  • Emotion Focused Couples Therapy

My diverse interest and professional training allows me to draw on the most effective features of each of the therapies I have trained in and to tailor my approach to best suit the individual or couple that I am working with. The therapy outcome research literature shows that clients often experience better therapy outcomes when the therapy approach reflects their individual needs, preferences and personality.
