I specialise in conducting psychotherapy sessions over the telephone. Remote forms of therapy like this have been shown to be as effective as face to face sessions, and offer clients a number of benefits, including greater access, flexibility and control, as well as reduced costs and demands on time.

Areas of Practice
CBT combines cognitive and behavioural therapies and has strong empirical support for treating mood and anxiety disorders (Chambless & Ollendick, 2001; DeRubeis & Crits-Christoph, 1998). The basic premise of CBT is that emotions are difficult to change directly, so CBT targets emotions by changing thoughts and behaviours that are contributing to the distressing emotions.
CBT builds a set of skills that enables an individual to be aware of thoughts and emotions; identify how situations, thoughts, and behaviours influence emotions; and improve feelings by changing dysfunctional thoughts and behaviours. The process of CBT skill acquisition is collaborative. Skill acquisition and assignments are what set CBT apart from “talk therapies.”
Coaching & training
I am also experienced in developing and delivering training on a range of subjects, including:
Stress Management & Resilience
Risk Assessment & Management
International Assignment Adjustment
I can also offer a range of life skills, personal development and coaching services
I offer a number of consultancy services in fields such as human resources, education, childcare, and addiction. I have designed treatment programmes, intervention protocols, behavioural management plans and a range of physical and digital resources, such as presentations, handouts, skills cards and tools.
The creations on the Adaptive Psychology Audio page include a number of mood regulating music tracks, mixes and ambient soundscapes, as well as recording of guided meditations and mindfulness exercises.
