Therapy can, at times, be an emotionally challenging process however I believe strongly that therapy can provide us with a means of learning and understanding ourselves better and enriching our lives as a result. I am strongly influenced by ideas from positive psychology and subscribe to the view that we all have the abilities to find solutions for the challenges that life throws at us. My job as a therapist is to help the people I work with to find those solutions, consider alternative perspectives and ultimately empower them to become their own therapist.
Through studying my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Oxford I have gained experience and knowledge of a wide range of therapeutic approaches and psychological difficulties across the lifespan. My practice is primarily informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) however I am respectful that every person is an individual so I am conscious that finding the most effective way of dealing with an issue may involve integrating ideas from a range of orientations. Common issues I work with include, but are not limited to; depression, anxiety-related conditions, panic attacks, phobias, stress, dealing with life transitions (loss and bereavement), postnatal depression, low self-esteem/self-confidence and relationship problems.

She is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and is a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society. Erin has worked in both NHS and private settings and is committed to offering high quality, effective and compassionate therapy.
Her passion and interest in human psychology has its roots in her childhood. Growing up in Northern Ireland she was always fascinated by how people think and feel and how our beliefs are shaped by our families, cultures and backgrounds.

For as long as she can remember she has loved connecting with people and hearing their stories and so a career in a helping profession fits with her values and strengths.
