What to Expect

An initial assessment session helps you to discover if you are comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy could assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an introductory assessment meeting in Reading.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and actions. It recognises and addresses unhelpful thoughts which maintain the problems you experience. The aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy for alcohol dependence, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) (ME), depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), self harm and substance dependence.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what matter regarding your childhood or adulthood you explore. An objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a difficulty and find a way forward that is right for you.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing guides your eye movements to affect how your brain processes data. The technique endeavours to reprocess your locked distressing memories. The objective of eye movement desensitisation reprocessing is to desensitise your upsetting memories.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests eye movement desensitisation reprocessing for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines therapeutic approaches to suit your needs and the problems you experience. It explores your personal experience and options. An aim of integrative therapy is to help you advance your self-awareness.

Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal therapy focuses on the interpersonal difficulties you encounter. It facilitates you in comprehending problems differently. An objective of interpersonal therapy is to help you implement helpful changes in how you relate.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends interpersonal therapy for depression.


Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, feelings and actions. It offers you psychological treatments and mental health support. An intention of psychological therapies is to help you ease symptoms.

Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)

Solution focused therapy focuses on finding answers to the issues you encounter. It explores what helps you, and which actions you can make to effect change. The purpose of solution focused therapy is to help you know and use your personal strengths.

Systemic Therapy

Systemic therapy focuses on the organisation of interactions between you and people. It identifies the interactions which perpetuate the interpersonal problems you encounter. Systemic therapy seeks to help you enhance how you communicate with people.
