I am a Clinical Psychologist who has had the privilege of working across a range of mental health settings (mostly in the NHS) to help people find ways to overcome some of the challenges in life. I strongly believe in the importance of providing evidence based, high quality therapy, but I also believe that therapy should be a very human experience.
I have completed training in several psychological therapies including cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), compassion focused therapy (CFT), and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I work with a wide range of emotional distress and I specialise in working with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
I adopt a kind and compassionate approach within therapy, and I work with each person to create a safe, accepting and non-judgemental therapeutic space by being open and thoughtful about what people bring to their therapy sessions. Ultimately, I enjoy working with people in therapy to help them find ways to live the life that they want.
