My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety & stress, neurodiversity (ADHD, autism), low self-esteem, relationship and commitment issues, family dynamics, addictions, LGBTQ+ affirming therapy, bereavement & loss, trauma & PTSD, women's health (PMDD, menopause).
Sometimes our thoughts and emotions can feel too much for us to deal with. We may feel vulnerable, lost, torn or stuck, and find ourselves in need of help. Let me offer you an open, safe and judgment free space, that encourages you to explore whatever's on your mind. I am a qualified and highly experienced UKCP Accredited Counselling Psychotherapist working with adults, couples and groups. I believe that therapy should be an empowering process for each client, therefore taking a collaborative, client-focused approach which respects diversity and difference is essential for an effective therapeutic process.

Do you struggle with the voice inside your head that tells you you're stupid, ugly, pretending to be someone you're not? Do you want to change this voice?. Through person-centred therapy, working with the issues my children were mirroring for me and offering myself compassion, working with my neurodivergence instead of rejecting it and shaming myself I managed to heal this and recover from narcissistic relationships. This is your time, I truly believe you can reach your full potential like I did with the conditions my own therapist provided, just like a flower I bloomed, you can too!

I'm a highly experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist and sleep specialist providing evidence-based psychological interventions (including CBT) for a range of difficulties including insomnia, adult ADHD, anxiety, work-related stress and burnout, trauma, depression, OCD, health anxiety, phobia, self-esteem issues and relationship difficulties.
Psychological support is about investing in you. Life can be chaotic, intense, confusing, and we can be left feeling disconnected from ourselves, our lives, and the people around us. Sometimes we just need some space to stop and think. Psychological support is also about developing a deeper understanding of yourself - who you are, what you need, what matters to you. For others, it's about building on existing skills - how to get more out of relationships, improving communication, being more assertive, boosting your sleep and performance, learning to be the best version of yourself.

Drugs or alcohol used to self medicate, relax or cope with stress but now noticed its getting out of control?  Anxiety and panic attacks starting to control your life but not sure the trigger? Or do you just have a sense something is wrong but struggle to open up or express how you feel to your partner, family or friends? The beauty of talking to a counsellor is I am neutral and independent of your situation which can make it easier to open up and explore your feelings and thoughts.

Together we can heal the disconnection, build coping strategies to recover from burn-out & develop strength from the challenges you face.

Trying to make sense of things can feel hugely overwhelming. A feeling of knowing deep down, things need to be explored. I believe therapy should provide you with a supportive space to call your own. A space to feel comfortable enough to explore those inner most parts. To unpack, process and try things out. To reflect and reframe.

Together, these functions can be described as 'good brain health'. However, these vital functions can be interrupted by stress, anxiety, neurodivergence (ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia), hormonal changes, and viruses such as Long Covid. I work with organisations and individuals who want to proactively improve, protect and optimise brain health including cognitive performance, emotional flexibility and mental wellbeing.

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

You should seek treatment for ADHD if you consistently have difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that interferes with your daily life. Symptoms of ADHD include the inability to sustain attention during tasks, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, being easily distracted, frequent fidgeting or squirming, and talking or interrupting excessively. If these symptoms interfere with your career, academics, or relationships—for example, consistently failing to complete professional projects on time—you should seek an evaluation for ADHD.

How does treatment for ADHD work?

Effective treatment for ADHD often consists of medication, behavioural therapy, and lifestyle changes. Stimulant medications such as Adderall and Ritalin work by altering levels of neurotransmitters in the brain; higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine are known to improve attention and focus. Therapy works by helping people with ADHD understand the condition, discuss their areas of difficulty, and develop behavioral strategies to manage their symptoms. In some cases, modifying one’s diet and exercise can also help improve symptoms.

How long does treatment for ADHD take?

It’s tough to give an exact time frame because everyone varies. In terms of medications, stimulants begin to work very soon after you take them, generally within the hour. It may take time to identify the right medication and dosage, but the medication itself is fast-acting. In terms of therapy, it takes time to develop skills and put them into practice, but you will likely see improvements within a few weeks or months.
