About me

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and mental health practitioner, who studied at the University of Bristol to master's level. My experience has been gained from many different areas including private practice, GP surgeries and employee assistance programmes. I am also ex-military, which has provided me with experience in Battlefield Trauma and supporting those injured in battle. I have also served in Afghanistan and supported the seriously injured and their families at the QE hospital in Birmingham. Specialising in Trauma I am also an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner.

I joined the Wellbeing team in November 2013 as a Senior Wellbeing Practitioner.

I am currently working on a DBT project that looks at  integrated support using elements of DBT.

Mental wealth and resilience

The reality is we all face the challenges that life brings and depending how well we are equipped to face those challenges is dependent on our mental wealth. Like all other assets they need investment and management. We go through life learning new techniques such as walking, talking, and riding a bike. Unfortunately though as we grow and adapt to new challenges one of the most important techniques is overlooked and that is how to look after our own overall wellbeing. One of the best ways of improving our mental wealth is by improving your emotional resilience skills.

Emotional resilience workshops

Often university can be the first time we face challenges without our normal support network. This overlaid with our commitment to study can sometimes become difficult for some of us. Therefore we recommend attending one of the workshops listed below as they provide advice, tips and techniques for developing your emotional resilience, which you can benefit from during your time at university and also after your graduate.
