About

I have worked in mental health for 25 years and been qualified as a Clinical Psychologist for nearly 20 years with experience in both the public and private sectors. I am experienced in working with adolescents, adults, couples and families across a wide range of psychological difficulties and have undertaken specific training in a variety of therapeutic approaches including; Schema therapy, Cognitive Behavioual Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy and Systemic Family Therapy. We can work together to find what approach will work best for you.
Most difficulties come from feeling trapped, as if there’s no way out of the current situation... Low mood, anxiety, stress, behavioural issues all stem from feeling stuck and feelings of shame, guilt or avoidance get layered on top leading to a feeling of pressure. Therapy is about trusting someone to help you find a way forwards, I can do that.
I am a warm and friendly clinician, committed to delivering effective therapy skilfully. I am flexible and aim to ensure the people I see feel understood, gain insight and find ways of resolving difficulties. I get consistently positive feedback from clients and my referrals are mostly from personal recommendations. Feel free to get in contact.
