I have trained in several different therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, CBT, person-centred and EMDR. What this means in practice is that I can tailor a package of help and support for each individual, couple or family. I am not rigid in my approach or tied to one particularly therapy. What I can provide is as individual as you are, always delivered in a professional and ethical way.
