About

Do you find yourself going around painful and frustrating circles in your life and relationships? Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed and uncertain how to move forward? Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we just need another person to help us find a new path. Therapy can help us make sense of our feelings, thoughts and actions. It can support us to work through difficult emotions and memories and enable us to find the courage and compassion needed to forge a better life for ourselves. Choosing a therapist can be daunting, but having an initial chat on the phone can help you decide if someone feels like a good fit for you.
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years' experience working with adults in NHS mental health services and private practice. I have trained in a broad range of psychological models and always tailor therapy to suit an individual's needs and preferences. I work alongside people to ensure therapy feels safely paced and collaborative.
I have seen how therapy can help us understand ourselves (and others) better; feel less alone and more empowered; and ultimately to move towards a more centred, calmer, less reactive way of being with ourselves, others and the world. It can be unnerving taking that first step but a good therapist will always aim to be an honest, supportive and steady guide.
