Therapy can also be called counselling or psychotherapy, which typically helps you process and resolve problematic or negative beliefs, feelings, thinking patterns, behaviours, relationship issues, and even physical symptoms. So if you feel depressed, anxious, stressed, traumatised, or feel that your difficulties are deep-rooted then some of the more traditional therapies may be then more suitable for you, and I tailor my approach to be holistic using elements of these therapies to your needs.

Here is a selection of the psychological therapies available:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is based on the idea that negative feelings arise in the context of certain patterns of thinking and behaviours and change is needed to break these vicious cycles. CBT therapy directly addresses negative thinking and helps challenge and replace such thoughts with more balanced logic, which in turn ultimately improves well-being, enhances resilience and coping. In addition, CBT is advocated by both researchers and the UK government for a range of psychological problems and chronic health conditions.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a cutting-edge development within Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), based on research and the latest insights in psychology. There is a big overlap between CBT and ACT, however, ACT places greater emphasis on how to engage in helpful behaviours, spending less time and energy analysing and changing unhelpful thoughts. It teaches people true psychological flexibility, and how to hold painful thoughts and feelings lightly while stepping forward into a life based on their very own values and goals.

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

Compassionate Focused Therapy helps people to develop a more compassionate approach to themselves and others. Many difficult mental health issues often have associated shame and self-criticism. This can be common in depression and anxiety, which naturally triggers low self-worth. As this therapy progresses, harnessing self-compassion can begin to readdress the negative inner monologue.

Psychological Therapy & Counselling

Humanistic Psychotherapy is broad term that's generally used to describe ongoing talk therapy and counselling. This type of therapy aims to help a person explore their past and understand how it is linked to their current struggles. In establishing a solid and trusting relationship, client and therapist work together to explore difficult and potentially painful areas of life and develop insights to work through those issues.

Psychodermatology Therapy

Research shows that psychological factors such as stress have an effect on many skin disorders. Living with a skin disorder such as acne, vitiligo or eczema can affect your mood and behaviour, with self-esteem and body-image also being negatively affected. Psychological treatment can be helpful in learning new ways of thinking and coping, as well as reducing psychological symptoms such as stress, anxiety and depression, which in turn may be worsening the skin problem.


Mindfulness is a type of therapy which is based on a form of meditation to enable the mind to re-focus attention to become present in the moment. This process helps manage stress, anxiety, pain and other problems. Modern day life leads us to spend much of our time ruminating on past experiences, worrying about the future. Often looking to external ways to help us to be happy. By accepting the reality of how things are in 'the here and now' we learn to tolerate difficult emotions and thoughts as they arise by letting them come up, addressing them, letting go and moving on.
