I have extensive training in three specific models, and am skilled at integrating a variety of models to meet individual needs. I am qualified at post graduate level and have worked privately, for the NHS, and in various school settings, including state and private boarding. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work within their ethical frame work. 

Person Centred Psychotherapy (Rogerian)

PCT is a talking therapy to treat common disorders and trauma to can openly explore clients difficulties in a safe, confidential place. The client will deepen their understanding of themselves at their own pace, using the time to find their own solutions, with the belief that every person has the capability to fulfil their potential. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  

Treatment for anxiety disorders, depression and eating disorders. CBT is structured, directive approach with focus on making behavioural and cognitive changes. With the aim to improve mental health, emotional regulation, and life long develop problem solving and coping skills. 

Family Based Treatment (FBT)

Treatment for anorexia and bulimia. FBT is the leading treatment for adolescent eating disorders. It's a 3 phased treatment that involves the whole family in solving their child’s disorder. Phase 1 focuses on nutrition and weight restoration, Phase 2 focuses on re-establishing independent eating and Phase 3 addresses underlying or left over issues. Unlike traditional family therapy, it does not blame the family for the child's illness. 

Risk management 

I am experienced in managing physical and psychological risks related to low weight and bulimia. Including assessing if the client is safe to be exercising or attending school. I am skilled at assessing re-feeding risk or other risks associated with purging or dietary restraint. I have experience working with self-harm and suicidal ideation, including joint working with other professionals such as psychiatrists, GP's and nurses.
