About

Hi there! I specialise in working with complex emotional needs using a range of evidence based therapies. My clients have often experienced a range of adverse experiences such as trauma, neglect or emotional abuse and may be experiencing depression, anxiety, low self worth, intense emotionality or difficulty in relationships. I see people for both longer term and time limited therapy. I work well with people who experience shame around their issues or experiences, who are anxious about therapy or who have found previous therapy unhelpful. I also provide supervision and training to other psychologists and institutions.
I am a HCPC registered Doctor of Clinical Psychology with over 15 years in practice. I draw on a breadth of additional training and experience in both private and NHS settings to work with people in a bespoke manner drawing particularly on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Narrative Therapy and EMDR.
I am a big believer in the importance of the therapeutic relationship in healing and change and practice in a compassionate, thoughtful and non-judgemental manner that builds trust and supports clients to develop their own helpful understanding of their experiences. I welcome people from all backgrounds and identities. Saturday and evening sessions available
