April Kane

Clinical Psychologist

I work with adults and adolescents who have anxiety and related disorders; are struggling with changes in their lives; or who have experienced trauma. I also enjoy working with young people to tackle the social, emotional and life challenges they face in the later years of high school and beyond; and parents who might be struggling to relate to their teenager.

You may be experiencing anxiousness, a feeling of dread, nervousness and insecurity, guilt and shame. You may be feeling on-edge, your heart racing, or have trouble switching off and relaxing. You may recognise a pattern of difficult relationships in your life whether with your partner, friends or family members, i.e. parents. Maybe you engage in self-defeating or self-sabotaging behaviours, such as avoidance, self-harm, picking fights or creating difficulties for yourself by putting things off to the last minute.

You might relate to these presenting issues; anxiety, OCD or phobias, adjustment disorder, PTSD, complex developmental trauma, attachment disruption, borderline personality disorder. I have experience in and draw from a variety of modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy, Schema Therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy techniques (DBT), and trauma-informed approaches

My therapeutic style is collaborative, person-centred, and geared towards people who are not just interested in symptom-reduction, but who are ready for real and meaningful change in their life. This means engaging in medium to long-term therapeutic work – don’t let that idea scare you off! We can talk about it 😉 I recognise and value the importance of the relationship you have with your therapist. My aim is to help create stability, consistency, awareness and trust in your journey with me.
