My Approach

One of the things I enjoy most about this work is seeing people make meaningful changes to their life and, at times, helping people change how they feel about what may have happened in their past.

The Human Givens approach to mental health and wellbeing uses the most effective psychotherapeutic techniques from a wide range of approaches, combining them into one highly effective and flexible 'tool box'.

Why “Human Givens” and what will WE do?

  • This is a refreshing and effective approach to mental health and emotional wellbeing.

  • I will help you identify how your emotional needs are being met, and where there may be gaps.

  • We will deal quickly and effectively with any relevant past trauma.

  • We will work together to find ways to ensure you get your emotional needs met in healthy balance.

  • Results are fast and effective in helping people back to a healthy psychological state.

  • I will select methods and techniques that are right for you.

  • We will access your strengths and resources to find ways to feel stable, cope better, build strength, make change and, ultimately, thrive.

What WON’T we do?

  • Attempt to dig up real or imagined miserable memories from the past.

  • Set out on prolonged so-called voyages of “self-discovery”.
