About

Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, or major life changes? Perhaps you find yourself pulled into unhealthy relationship patterns, or feel like you can't connect fully with others? These are common difficulties I work with. I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the HCPC & BPS. I use a compassionate, evidence-based approach to helping individuals identify the changes they’d like to make and to learn new skills for dealing with difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I work with adults and adolescents aged 16+
I have 18 years experience in the NHS and private practice. I am trained to doctorate level in evidence-based therapies including CBT, CFT & ACT, which involve learning new skills to respond to distress. I offer schema therapy to address unmet childhood needs and to understand and change problematic relationship patterns and harmful/sabotaging behaviour
I understand it can feel like a big step to seek psychological therapy, and therefore it is important to find the right professional to help you. Please look at my website and contact me if you would like to arrange a free 20m telephone consultation to discuss your difficulties further and ask any questions about clinical psychology and my therapy approach.
