I am Clinical Psychologist with 8 years experience of working in mental health. I specialise in adult mental health. Alongside private practice, I work in the NHS as a highly specialised clinical psychologist in an adult mental health service.
I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care and Professionals Council (HCPC). I am an accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and I am also a member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
I have extensive experience of working with people with a range of mental health difficulties, including anxiety, depression, phobias, trauma, relationship difficulties and loss. I have a particular interest working with clients with relationship difficulties and self-esteem difficulties.
If you would like to contact me then we can have brief telephone discussion about your current difficulties and what you might like to gain from psychological therapy. Our initial discussion will also help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. Following our telephone conversation, I can then meet with you for an initial hour session to complete an assessment and to establish a therapy treatment plan. The therapeutic approaches may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) or Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). We will discuss the treatment plan together so that you are happy with any decisions that are made. We will also have regular reviews to ensure that you are making progress towards the aims that you would like to achieve in therapy.
I am also an ‘approved provider’ with major health insurance companies.

It is important in therapy that you feel that you have a safe place that you can talk about your difficulties. I aim to provide a therapeutic space in which you can openly talk about your difficulties and experiences. I also want to help you overcome your difficulties as soon as possible so that you can re-engage in the things in life that are meaningful for you. Therefore, I will develop a treatment plan with you that takes into account the evidence of therapies that are most effective for the difficulties that you are currently struggling with. This evidence is based on research which the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) have used to develop guidelines for a range of mental health difficulties.
I have two pleasant and comfortable clinic rooms. One room is based in Stafford and the other room is based in Penkridge. Parking is available at both venues. I am able to offer sessions on a Monday, however, there is a possibility to negotiate the day.
Please get in touch with me if you think I could be the right therapist for you. I can be contacted both by telephone or by email.
