My Approach

Regardless of what issues you face, I use evidence-based interventions combined with many years of experience to help you develop practical coping skills. The ultimate goals are to increase your effectiveness and independence in managing whatever difficulties exist. In sessions, I emphasise:

  • A collaborate approach: We both have skills, experience, and knowledge that can be used to help address your difficulties.
  • A professional, down-to-earth style: I aim to provide an informal but professional service. I try to keep sessions jargon-free, and I don't make people lie on couches.
  • A client-centred approach: Sessions are about you, and what you want help with.

My background in therapeutic intervention includes a number of evidence-based approaches including Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Metacognitive Therapy (MCT).
