About

I am a chartered practitioner psychologist with 25 years of therapeutic experience of working in the NHS, the police service, education and private practice. I am an integrative practitioner and work with a variety of psychological models. These include: CBT, mindfulness, compassion focused therapy, personal-construct psychology, psychodynamic and systemic psychotherapy. I offer treatment sessions via video conferencing platforms and telephone. I also provide supervision to psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists.
I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties, such as anxiety (generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety and health anxiety), depression, panic attacks, phobias, body dysmorphic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, perfectionism, depression and eating disorders. I have a specialism in working with trauma (PTSD and complex trauma).
I am passionate about providing the highest quality of care and treatment. I provide a warm and supportive therapeutic space in which you can explore any challenges or difficulties that may be stopping you living an enriched, fulfilling and balanced life. During therapy, I work collaboratively to help you to identify and reach your therapeutic goals.
