Time To Talk Therapy

Here to help

I am qualified and experienced in a range of therapies that I use with clients to help them meet their goals. I am also an experienced supervisor for both professionals and trainee therapists.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

This is a highly evidenced based therapy widely used within the NHS to manage a range of common mental health problems. It involves understanding our thoughts, behaviours and emotions to work out how we may improve how we feel. Its evidence base lies with common conditions experienced by many of us these include low mood, depression, low self esteem and confidence as well as anxiety conditions including, phobias, stress, panic, generalised anxiety disorder (excessive worry), health anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is an evidenced based therapy used to treat trauma (both traumatic experiences/ memories as well as Post Traumatic Stress disorder) and helps you address the challenges of our past, present, and future. It is a recognised treatment for traumatic memories and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and there is increasing evidence to show its effectiveness for other mental health conditions.

Systemic Therapy

Systemic therapy seeks to understand the individual in relationship with others, rather than in isolation. The individual is regarded as part of a larger unit or system, for example, a couple, a family, an organisation or a community. This therapy seeks to understand potentially unhelpful patterns and dynamics and how to manage and work towards change.

Couples Counselling

This type of therapy is designed to help couples fully understand the influence of external factors, reflect on the past where appropriate and facilitate change. There will be a focus on more effective communication to bring about resolution to conflict and tension or other difficult emotions experienced. This therapy will not give you the answers to whether or not you should separate, conclusions will be drawn by yourselves with professional support.

Clinical supervision

I have experience and qualifications for providing clinical supervision for professionals and CBT trainees. I have provided regular supervision for clinicians and have worked at the local university providing supervision for trainee CBT therapists. Please contact me for further information.
