About me

I am a Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapy Practitioner with over 10 years experience of working in the NHS, private and voluntary sectors. I am accredited through the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am a chartered member of the Division of Clinical Psychology and the British Psychological Society. I am also a member of the Institute of Family Therapy.

I specialise in working with adults and couples. I offer Cognitive, Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, Narrative, Systemic and Mindfulness therapies. I believe in tailoring the therapy to my client's needs. Often, the therapeutic package I offer will draw on a mix of therapeutic techniques designed to optimise individual and couples' mental wellbeing.

I offer neuropsychological assessments for dementia, cognitive impairment and IQ testing.

I also work with organisations to enable their staff to achieve optimal mental health and maximize their performance.

It has been a privilege to set up and clinically lead some award winning nationally recognised services for the NHS. I am also a lecturer on the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Training Course at the University of Surrey. I am experienced clinical supervisor for the UCL, UEL, Royal Holloway and Surrey clinical psychology doctoral training programmes.

Please call or email me if you would like an appointment. I usually have a brief chat with you over the phone and then book you in to one of my clinics if I feel it would be helpful for us to meet.
