I am a Highly Specialist Chartered Psychologist with over 20 years experience in the area of adult mental health, teaching and research. I currently work in NHS and Private Practice. I am registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). That means you can be assured that I am trained to the highest standards. I specialise in adult mental health, with specialist interest in complex trauma. I offer individual therapy to address any type of mental health issue such as depression, interpersonal problems, trauma, anxiety, stress, abuse, and self-esteem issues.
I am trained across a broad range of therapeutic models which means I can tailor therapeutic intervention to your individual needs. This is achieved by undergoing an initial assessment, which enables both of us to get an understanding of the difficulties and most importantly, a plan for going forward.
My core therapeutic training and philosophy is in Person Centred Theory and Practice. This means that you can be assured that you will be treated with respect, empathy, and compassion. The quality of the therapeutic relationship is central to good outcomes in therapy, therefore it is essential that you feel understood, not judged negatively and valued.

Your first session will focus on gaining an overview of your background and difficulties. This helps both of us understand more fully the issues you are struggling with and the best way forward to address how you can best improve your mental well-being. Therapy with me will seem like a guided conversation, gentling exploring, sometimes challenging and always supportive.
