Diane has worked in voluntary and community settings as well as in private practice. Diane has worked with clients presenting with issues such as PTSD, trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship issues, sexuality, eating disorders, chronic illness, suicidal ideation, loss, abuse, life transitions, family issues, and self-esteem issues.
Diane’s approach is humanistic and client centred, therefore her approach is non- judgemental, believing in the client’s ability to heal leading to personal growth. Using an integrative model includes therapeutic approaches such as psycho dynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychosynthesis, and the attachment theory. Having experienced major life transitions and a chronic illness, with Diane’s deep understanding and insight she provides a safe space to therapeutically guide clients with empathy and compassion. Diane believes the therapeutic relationship can create a secure base from which a client can become aware of their thoughts and feelings and explore their challenges helping to achieve their therapeutic goals.
