I'm a HCPC registered clinical psychologist, accredited EMDR practitioner and am Level 1 IFS (Internal Family Systems) trained. My career spans over 2 decades in both the NHS and independent sector. My main focus is on helping people heal from childhood trauma and become their best selves. I have a particular interest in working with neurodivergent individuals, who have often experienced more than their fair share of these. Although my main modalities are EMDR and IFS, my broad training enables me to work flexibly by drawing upon the best psychological theory and models for your circumstances and personality.

Changing anything starts with the decision to try! Ask yourself what you want from therapy. Do you need to discuss your thoughts? Do you need to discuss how you're feeling? Do you feel stuck with these issues? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one way to effectively address this. Support is key here & working with me in CBT can aid change! You have to challenge to change and putting your trust in an experienced CBT Therapist is the first step to change & I assure you of a confidential & professional ear at all times. Work out what you want and need and go for it, get the help...you have everything to gain by putting yourself first!

I have a passion for working with people and assisting them to work through ongoing issues so that they can for-fill their full potential and live their best life. Attachment is at the core of all of my work, looking at how attachment styles influence a persons way of being. Attachment relates to all aspects of who we are, how we develop and how we form and interact in relationships. Gaining an understanding of attachment, raising awareness of why we behave in certain ways and react to specific situations can help us change and stop repeating negative behaviours & patterns.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in PA31?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in PA31 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
