I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist living and working on the Fylde coast and I offer one to one and couples therapy using an integrative Cognitive-Behavioural approach.
Sessions generally take place at NWT Services, 52 Holmfield Road, Blackpool, FY2 9RU. Some sessions may take place in public locations or at your home. To improve access across the Fylde Coast I now operate satellite clinics within Grant Smith Physiotherapy Centre (Lytham), Susan Walker & Associates (Poulton-le-Fylde) and Cleveleys Community Centre.

I often utilise third-wave CBT approaches including Compassion-focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques, both of which incorporate mindfulness.
I also have a particular interest in working with chronic pain, anger problems and in cognitive-behavioural couples therapy and have done additional training in these areas.
