I offer a holistic and non-judgemental approach with clients drawing upon, but not relying on, cognitive behavioural therapy. I help clients of all ages to identify and change patterns of behaviour that they do not find useful or promoting of their psychological well being.
I provide 1:1 sessions of 50 minutes to adults , children and adolescents. Children can be accompanied by a parent and often I will see the parents together first. Confidentiality is kept for a client of any age but I will offer advice and consult parents in parallel with seeing a child if the child / adolescent is comfortable with this.
I conduct psychological assessment for many purposes where psychological investigation is required. This includes capacity, employment, personal injury, medical negligence, asylum, immigration, human rights and criminal cases.
