This page explains which psychological therapies I offer and gives a list of the sorts of difficulties that I can help with.

There is no such thing as a silly question!

Psychological Therapies

My approach is called Integrative Relational Psychology. The ‘Integrative’ part of this means that I am trained to provide a variety of evidence based psychological therapies, and specialise in integrating elements of these therapies to design a unique and bespoke therapy for each client. Integration of psychological therapies is not about using a piece-meal combination of tools and techniques. Instead it aims to blend the theory and techniques of each therapy into a seamless bespoke therapy that best meets your specific needs and therapeutic goals. The ‘Relational’ part of this approach means that there is a focus throughout on the importance of the therapeutic relationship.  Your therapy experience will therefore always be one of collaboration, with both you and your therapist working together to understand and explore your difficulties, experiences and strengths.  There will be a emphasis on active participation and making real world changes that align with your therapeutic goals.

As well as integrating the therapies and approaches listed below, I provide most as individual therapies depending on what we agree together would best meet your individual needs:

  • Integrative Relational Psychology
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)
  • Psychodynamic approaches
  • CFT (Compassion Focused Therapy)
  • DBT skills (Dialectic Behavioural Therapy – skills only)
