I'm an experienced clinical psychologist and CAT practitioner, having worked extensively in the NHS and within universities, contributing to the training of other psychologists. I have worked with people experiencing a wide range of struggles and find that CAT can often be a good fit when someone is noticing repeating patterns of difficulties, perhaps in how they relate to themselves or others. I have specialist experience working within women’s health and physical health settings, for example, with difficulties related to pregnancy, childbirth, loss, gynaecological conditions such as painful sex, and long term health conditions.

These include Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.
Since qualifying as a Psychologist, I have worked mainly with individuals who have suffered some kind of childhood trauma. As a result I have found that individuals with personality issues, CPTSD, mood disorders and neurodiversity feel that I am the best fit for them. The types of clients who are drawn to me tend to have difficulties with rejection, abandonment, being judged and not accepted. I provide the space to counter act that, to develop self-empathy and self-compassion and to simply accept and learn to love who we truly are.

I also work in other cognitive therapies such as CBT and schema focused therapy but have a particular interest in mindfulness based and acceptance based therapies.
I specialise in working with individuals who have difficulties in managing their emotions and therefore struggle with things like relationships, drinking, substance use, self harming and other impulsive behaviour. You don't need a formal diagnosis to work with me, but I do have a speciality of working with people with personality disorders. I also have lots of experience of working with people who have had traumatic histories and are struggling to manage as a result. This might mean they are depressed, anxious or just finding trusting people hard. As well as these specialities, I also work with all major mental health issues
