I am a passionate and practical mental health professional with over ten years of experience in the industry. I believe that my role is to create a supportive and non-judgmental environment for you to discover what works best for you.
You can expect me to be open and transparent with what I know from the research about mental health and wellbeing whilst also asking you questions that help you tap into and (re)discover your own knowledge and expertise about what will make a positive difference in your life.
Given that no single approach works 100% of the time for 100% of people, I integrate a range of theories and practice approaches into my work. Depending upon your needs and what is supported by evidence I will draw on: the philosophy of recovery; strengths-based, person-centred and solution-focussed approaches; cognitive behaviour therapy; acceptance and commitment therapy; and elements of mindfulness and positive psychology.
I recognise that mental health affects us all. A plant-based diet and prioritising sleep are two of the most important strategies for maintaining my own mental health.
Areas of Focus
Navigating love, loss, conflict and changing relationships is hard. Together we can look at how to process difficult emotions and cultivate respectful, mutually beneficial relationships.
Health & Wellbeing
Do you know what to do when it comes to Health & Wellbeing but struggle with following through? You are not alone. Together we can create a plan and accountability process to help you succeed.
Anxiety, Stress & Depression
These are warning signs that things are out of balance and an invitation to change. Together we can explore strategies to help in the here and now whilst also creating a pathway to a better future.
Work & Career
Feeling burnt out, stressed, bored, uninspired or trapped in your career? Talk it through and identify practical steps to overcome this and reconnect with the values and passion in your work.
You may have a diagnosis, you may not. In our work together we will look at your own unique mental health experience, tap into your resilience and create a plan for living a fulfilling life.
Are you interested in being supported but challenged to improve and grow in your social work or mental health practice? If so you will experience a good fit with the supervision that I provide.
