About

One way to think about looking after your mental health is like servicing a car. You need the right specialist to identify and treat specific problems to get back on the road safely. I am an experienced, part-time lead clinical psychologist in an early intervention psychosis team. I offer an excellent understanding of why your problems have not gone away and how to intervene effectively. I work with anxiety disorders (social, OCD, panic, GAD), PTSD, depression and other problems. I target factors (e.g. fear of failure, fear of the unknown) that fuel multiple issues. Your quality of life can be damaged by how you think about things.
I'm trained to the highest psychological standards. I participate in research committees, supervise therapists, and run reflective practice groups. I draw upon multiple treatments including CBT (I'm BABCP accredited), schema therapy, CFT and EMDR. These therapies can relieve your past and present distress. We will work together to achieve your therapy goals.
Throughout my life I have learned to build emotional resilience and to appreciate different aspects of my personality. I'll help you to learn how to manage your own wellbeing. We will work together to tackle the obstacles that are holding you back. Others say that I'm calm, observant and approachable. You will have a safe and confidential therapy space.
