I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist offering evidenced based psychological assessment, therapy, supervision and consultation in Norwich. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and I predominantly work within a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic models and approaches, including CBT, Mindfulness-based Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT). I would describe my therapeutic style as integrative. This means I work with clients using a range of therapeutic approaches depending on client needs and preferences, so I tend not to stick rigidly to a one size fits all way of working. This allows me to be flexible and client-centred no matter who I am working with.
Whilst I have been trained in various therapeutic models I believe the corner-stone of any effective talking therapy is a good therapeutic relationship. I offer a non-judgemental, collaborative and compassionate space for clients to explore and reflect on their current difficulties which can enable acceptance and change to occur.
Areas of Practice
Anxiety covers a whole range of difficulties including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, performance anxiety, generalised anxiety (anxiety about many things including worrying about worrying), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), agoraphobia (fear of being in spaces where it might be difficult to escape), panic disorder (panic attacks) and specific phobia (from spider to needle to vomiting).
Whether in good times or bad, everyone experiences stress at one time or another. The difference between stress and anxiety is that stress is a response to a situation (work difficulties, family event for example) and anxiety is the reaction to that stress. Chronic stress can impact on your physical health, causing symptoms from headaches, high blood pressure, digestive problems to lo of sleep and appetite.
Depression or low mood can impact many areas of your life, including your romantic relationships,family and work life, friendships and your desire to engage in hobbies and interests. Much like anxiety and worry it can significantly impact on your appetite, sleep and sexual life.
Low self-esteem refers to how you feel about yourself overall. Indicators of low self esteem include perfectionism, people pleasing (consistently putting others before yourself), heavy criticism of yourself or others, excessive use of social media (comparing self negatively to others) and not speaking up when you have something to say.
Psychosexual difficulties include any aspect of sexual functioning that is caused by emotional or psychological factors rather than caused by physiological factors. These include loss of desire, painful intercourse, erectile dysfunction, premature or delayed ejaculation, pregnancy and post-natal sex, sexuality and illness, poor body image relating to intimacy and not being able to achieve penetrative
