Hannah believes in the importance of building a good therapeutic relationship, valuing a collaborative approach guided by an individual’s goals. With this in mind, therapy is tailored to the individual, working creatively based on the person’s interests and values. Hannah is trained to use a range of evidence-based approaches, namely Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Narrative Therapy. However, she also draws on attachment theory and systemic approaches to help understand the wider context around a person’s difficulties. She therefore offers an adaptable and integrative therapeutic framework to best meet individual needs. She is currently completing additional training to acquire a diploma in Narrative Therapy and is registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC).
