Clinical Lead of Feel Well Therapy
Therapies I Provide:
I started my career as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS in 1993, and soon found my vocation of working with clients with mental health problems in 1995.
I have worked with clients presenting with a wide range of mental health presentations and severities over the years in my clinical roles within community mental health teams, in patients services, crisis and home treatment teams, and primary care, and IAPT services.
I started my training and practice as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in 2002 and have successfully treated many clients over the years.
I am an experienced and accredited CBT Therapist and Supervisor with the BABCP and also a qualified EMDR Therapist. I have a wide range of experience in treating mental health conditions, and a special interest and considerable experience in helping clients to recover from trauma, whether this is related to adversity or abuse in childhood, from relationships, or due to personal injury.
I have many years experience of working with solicitors and rehab companies providing services to their clients ( both via video and face-to-face sessions ) to help them to recover. In more recent years due to my own personal experience, I have developed a special interest in working with women who are experiencing peri or menopausal symptoms.
Working together we can help women to navigate this challenging time in their life and use evidence-based treatments and therapies to help them reclaim their lives
I am professional, caring, and driven to provide quality services. It has been said by many of my clients that I make complex issues more understandable, that they appreciate my straight-talking, and that the skills that they have learned in therapy have been invaluable and have changed their lives.
This has helped me to establish a successful private practice business called Feel Well Therapy (FWT).
I am a firm believer in evidence-based practice and want to try and educate the public about what therapies they should be looking for to treat mental health conditions.
As part of my role in FWT, I triage all clients and aim to link clients with the right therapist for their difficulties. I am always looking for ways to develop and improve services and welcome feedback from our clients and referrers.
