MSc Clinical Psychology
Training in EMDR
I have experience of working across the age range and with people experiencing a wide range of mental health issues, largely with people over the age of 18. I have specialised in working with people who suffer with disorders of eating and weight or struggle with concerns about weight and shape. My approach to therapy is broadly cognitive behavioural and I also draw on a combination of several approaches to inform my work. I have trained in the use of EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing), a therapy which is helpful both for people who have experienced trauma in their lives and sometimes also for helping to address longstanding emotional difficulties .
