I offer one-to-one therapy sessions, either in person or online. Face-to-face appointments are at Southgate Chambers in Winchester city Centre.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a time-limited therapy (usually six to 24 sessions) focusing on difficulties in the here-and-now (rather than the past). We work together to develop specific goals and get an understanding the patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that maintain distress. There is an emphasis on understanding how difficulties have developed, and learning and practising skills that can help can help you work towards your goals.
CBT is suitable for a wide range of difficulties including depression, sleep problems, anxiety presentations, bipolar, post-traumatic stress, addictions, anger, psychosis and personality difficulties.
Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)
CAT is a time-limited therapy typically (usually 16 to 24 sessions). CAT brings together elements of CBT and psychoanalytic approaches, and helps to understand the impact of our early experiences and relationships on the patterns and relationships we get into as adults. Once you can recognise these patterns playing out in everyday life, we use a range of techniques and ideas to build new, healthy ways of relating to themselves and others.
CAT is suitable for a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety presentations, addictions, relationship issues and personality difficulties.
Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR involves reprocessing intrusive memories to resolve the impact of past traumas. The aim is to reduce the intensity of, and distress caused by, these memories. EMDR is suitable for people experiencing PTSD, other trauma presentations or distressing memories, and can be a brief, focused treatment or part of a longer-term therapy.
