Therapy is about understanding, developing and changing. I am a clinical psychologist with many years experience of working with adults. I assist people to identify what the core issues are, understand how these have arisen, and then develop skills and tools to make the changes they want to make. I work with people with anxiety and anxiety disorders, low mood, low self-esteem, low confidence and those living with the effects of traumatic experiences. I also offer comprehensive assessments for those who have yet to fully understand what is happening for them, to help move them on in their lives.
I think it is vital to understand and identify the core problems rather than trying to fix the more obvious symptoms. I use my knowledge of the neurobiology of the brain alongside tools and techniques from the most effective therapy traditions to focus on the core issues driving current behaviours and feelings, and to motivate and facilitate change.
I have been working in the helping and caring professions for all of my adult life and I still find it a privilege to work alongside people to help them grow and develop. I will always try to help, and will be honest if I think I can't. Please do get in touch for a free initial consultation.

ADHD and ASD are complex and multifactorial issues. These diagnoses are potentially life-changing and can bring huge relief, understanding and improvements to functioning and co-morbid mental health issues. It is vital that these issues are fully understood and accurately diagnosed. The assessment for either ADHD or ASD takes 6 sessions, an assessment for both will take 9 sessions.

In therapy I use techniques from CBT, attachment and psychodynamic orientations in combination with a comprehensive understanding of the neurobiology underpinning emotion and cognitive processes. This allows us to focus on 3 key questions: What am I feeling? Why am I feeling it? What can I do about it? This a core sense of self and the ability to be conscious of the choices we can make.
