About me

I am an experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist who has worked in a wide range of public (NHS) and private settings. I work with children and young people of different ages alongside their carers (including looked after children and adopted children). I also work with adults. I adopt a supportive and person centred approach and I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship as a mechanism for change. I also believe that by creating the right conditions for personal growth and change most people can find meaningful solutions to their difficulties.

I have worked with children, young people and adults experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties and I would describe my approach as Integrative and Holistic. I draw on a range models of therapy to inform my work including person centred, cognitive-behavioural, systemic/narrative approaches and psychodynamic and mindfulness. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation Re-processing (EMDR) therapy which is a really effective approach for people who have experienced traumatic experiences or adverse life events.

I have a consulting room in Sevenoaks central which is easily accessible by public transport and car. I may be able to travel to nearby and surrounding areas within an hours reach from Sevenoaks.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a qualified Clinical Psychologist since 2003. I have since undertaken further training in narrative practice which focuses on the stories people bring to therapy and also Eye Movement Desenistisation Re-processing (EMDR) therapy which was originally developed for people who have experienced traumas but is now being used with a very wide range of presenting difficulties. I work with a variety of presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, obsessive behaviours, eating problems, relationship difficulties, stress, work stress, drug and alcohol dependence, performance anxiety, life transitions, post traumatic stress, attachment difficulties, mood swings and many more.

I adopt a non-judgmental and supportive approach to my clients and believe that given the right conditions we are all able to make changes to our lives for the better. I am interested in the personal stories that my clients bring and how difficulties have arisen through context and circumstances. I use a formulation approach and develop a therapeutic plan based on this and in participation with my clients.
