Home: Welcome


DBT is an evidence based talking therapy that combines a number of different approaches including the principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), mindfulness and acceptance. DBT has taken these concepts and developed a range of skills to understand and manage emotions, thoughts and behaviours to help develop 'a life worth living'.

Anyone who experiences painful emotions could benefit from the DBT approach. The approach was initially developed for people who experience their emotions so overwhelmingly that they can act impulsively, often relying on behaviours such as self-harm and substance use which can have their own emotional consequence. DBT has since been used effectively in a large number of different settings and in reality we could all benefit from the DBT approach, as we all experience painful emotions from time to time in life.

I trained in DBT in 2013 and have been actively working with the approach in group and individual settings since. I am very passionate about the DBT approach and have helped many people to develop their insight and ability to manage their own emotions. I aim to create a comfortable, compassionate and non-judgemental therapeutic space where people can explore their experiences and move forward from feeling stuck in the same patterns. I am a member of the UK Society for DBT, a registered mental health nurse and remain employed in an active nursing role also. Furthermore I am currently training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence based approach for trauma and I will additionally be offering this soon.

DBT can be effective for managing emotional distress, low mood, anxiety, past trauma, low self-esteem, stress, relationship difficulties and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. It can also help people to move away from behaviours such as self-harm, suicidal ideation, drinking, drug use and other impulsive or long-standing ways we use to try to manage painful emotions. For DBT to be as effective as possible, it requires open-minded willingness to explore your experiences and emotions to move towards changing patterns and habits that are no longer helpful.
