Types of problem I can help with

I have extensive experience in providing psychological assessment and therapeutic interventions (or ‘talking therapies’) to adults and young people with a range of mental health problems and areas of difficulty or distress including:

  • Mood based problems (reactive and recurrent depression, bipolar disorder)
  • Anxiety based problems (obsessions and compulsions, phobias, panic, generalised anxiety)
  • PTSD and difficulties associated with the effects of trauma
  • Eating disorders (including Anorexia, Bulimia, binge eating disorder)
  • Effects of childhood abuse
  • Low self esteem
  • Poor body image / body dysmorphia
  • Adjusting to bereavement and loss
  • Addictions (e.g. substance misuse, other addictions)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Stress related illnesses
  • Adjustment difficulties following stressful life events
  • Dealing with the effects of physical health problems

Please contact me to arrange an initial telephone consultation to find out if I could help you.  If we agree, we can arrange an assessment appointment where we can discuss and assess your needs further, and if appropriate, discuss ways psychological therapy might be helpful and make a plan for therapy.
