About

I work with adults using a holistic approach who are feeling stuck. Many people since COVID are struggling with depression, stress, anxiety, and burnout. Some people are turning to alcohol, drugs or other addictive behaviours to cope. Its ok to find life hard. I specialise in working with people who are worrying they aren’t managing their mental health, who may have experienced trauma, and may be self-medicating. I offer an entirely non-judgemental, confidential, compassionate and a safe space to talk about some of these things and help you to identify what changes you would like to make. I also specialise in working with ADHD.
I have 19 years post qualification experience working in the NHS, private sector and in private practice. I use a variety of models and techniques in my day to day practice including motivational interviewing, CBT, ACT, psychodynamic and relational attachment based approaches. I also work as an Expert Witness and provide training on drugs and alcohol.
I have been told I am warm, down to earth, approachable, easy to talk to and (occasionally) quite funny. I embrace people wanting to feel bolder or just a little bit more in charge of their lives. Feel free to get in contact and we can have a chat. I currently have evening, Friday day time and weekend online availability.
