I help those struggling with the emotional and psychological difficulties which undermine their enjoyment of life; and also those who simply want to better understand what makes them ‘tick’. Perhaps you are asking yourself: why am I in such a poor relationship, feeling anxious, behaving in a way which is causing problems, experiencing low mood? or sensing a disconnection from yourself, others, or the life you wish you could lead? If so then I am here to help and support you in making the changes that you need, and help you to understand how and why these issues have come into your life.
I offer a private, strictly confidential and non-judgemental service. I stress the last point in the belief that psychotherapy has the potential to be one of the few truly non-judgemental relational spaces available to us. Please see my website for further information.
Life can be challenging sometimes and it's good to receive all the help we can. Sometimes just talking to someone is the right thing to do. That can give us the understanding and confidence we need to make positive changes in our life and in others' lives. A therapeutic space gives us the opportunity to express unspoken thoughts and feelings, also to explore healthier ways of relating with ourselves.

Hello. I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist committed to helping people make meaningful changes in their lives through effective psychological therapy. I work with adults, adolescents, parents and families. Alongside my private practice, I have worked as a qualified Clinical Psychologist in the NHS for over 17 years providing effective treatment for adults, adolescents and families from diverse backgrounds. I have supervised therapists and held management roles in a variety of services.

I work with adult individuals and couples from many different backgrounds They can be in the grip of depression or battling with anxiety attacks or the after effects of traumatic experiences.

You might be looking for a counsellor or therapist but not know how to go about it. You might be struggling with difficult feelings, a painful loss, relationship issues or unhelpful behaviour patterns and need some support understanding what is going on for you. Clients who have difficulty navigating the world typically have not had sufficient recognition which is the first step towards experiencing change & feeling better. Underlying my training and work is a commitment to diversity and inclusion and I encourage an environment where my clients can be themselves.
A person’s mental health issues develop often from the experience of being in the situation of having limited, unwanted choices. So, an important part of psychotherapy/counselling treatment is helping clients discover alternative choices, encouraging them to see things from different perspectives: this is called philosophically ‘philosophizing’, while psychotherapeutically ‘mentalizing.’
Do you find yourself prioritising the external world and the needs of those around you? Perhaps you feel different to others or misunderstood in relationships? It may be you experience self-doubt, negative thinking or notice yourself repeating patterns that impact your relationships. Whatever is going on for you working together, relationally we can begin to explore ‘YOU’, to focus on raising your awareness & understanding of the way you experience yourself, to identify your goals for therapy, to be open to learning new ways of being. Therapy is a commitment between client & therapist, to be open to wanting things to be different.
We all have the capacity for growth, given the right conditions. Part of what therapy can be is the creation of a space where those conditions are met. During our 50 minute sessions, we will work toward a common goal. My role is to try to understand your lived experiences, in a confidential, non-discriminatory environment. Not to judge you. But most importantly therapy is about what you want to use the time and space for. People think of counselling as a last resort. We often keep our problems to ourselves, we compound all that feeling and pain and it emerges in our day to day lives in different ways, depression, stress, anxiety.

I am proactive and enthusiastic about achieving successful therapy outcomes.

I am here to provide a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space to explore these difficulties and support you to navigate a way out of them.
