Thanks for visiting! I provide online clinical services for adults who are struggling with long-term health issues or associated treatments, whose quality of life is poor but who want to live a meaningful life despite their illness. In relation to health psychology theories and scientific evidence, I use various established therapeutic interventions such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Writing Therapy, behavioural change methods, pain management and many other practices such as mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques, trauma and grief work. I often use an Integrative Therapeutic Approach that adapts to the unique needs of each specific client. The aim is to restore daily functioning and minimize the many consequences of illness on your quality of life. I place a strong emphasis on people's existential and spiritual well-being. Read More >
I use a secure Telehealth service (SimplePractice.com) that is HIPAA and GDPR compliant and very easy to use. Basically, you are sent a link before each appointment that takes you straight to the Telehealth window which is very similar to a Zoom or Skype call but of higher quality. All you need is a computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. If you feel a bit intimidated by the technology, don't worry! I'm more than happy to guide you through it. For more information about what Telehealth is and how it works, please click here.
We know from scientific research that conducting therapy online has the same therapeutic effect as those carried out in person and using this approach allows me to reach people from further afield. An online therapy option is indeed very helpful for people with a long-term illness as many may simply not be well enough, or in a position, to leave their homes. It's also a safer option for those who are immunocompromised, especially during the current Covid 19 pandemic.
"He who has a why to live for can bare almost any how." - Friedrich Nietzsche
Long-term illness can have some pretty grim consequences, and despite a vast amount of scientific evidence supporting the role of psychological, behavioural, social and spiritual factors in determining how well people cope, manage and adjust to their condition, these are often neglected within health care and if not supported or managed well, can be detrimental to a person's quality of life. My aim is to provide an online service to people anywhere in the world where these are addressed. To provide a supportive environment where concerns are not minimized, where people can find solutions to their problems, find ways of coping better and feel empowered to eventually manage their own health effectively, alongside that of their health care providers.
