About me

I am a fully qualified, accredited (HCPC, BPS) and experienced Clinical Psychologist. I offer both short-term and longer-term individual therapy for adults. I can help you explore issues, understand what has been holding you from leading a fuller and richer life, gain relief from present symptoms, develop resources to cope and bring about some positive changes. My approach is integrative and is tailored to suit your particular needs.  I also help people find and develop self-help tools and resources for their improved well-being.

In my practice I generally use:

  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) to help treat post-traumatic stress, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive behaviours, and to process past experiences such as childhood trauma and abuse
  • Mindfulness, to learn to disengage from unhelpful thought patterns which often maintain depression and anxiety
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • Schema Therapy
  • ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and chartered by The British Psychological Society (BPS). Training in clinical psychology is extensive and involves completion of both undergraduate and doctoral level training which takes at least 6 years. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology in 1999 at the University of Durham and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2010 at the University of Edinburgh. I have extensive NHS experience, working in a variety of Mental Health teams and I specialise in individual therapy with adults. I have also completed the necessary training to supervise Trainee Clinical Psychologists and have experience of supervising psychologists and providing consultancy to non-psychologist mental health professionals.

My post-qualification training includes:

  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR Extra training)
  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Training (NHS Grampian)
  • Generic and Specialist Supervision Training (NES)

Fees

Fees for self-funded individual psychological assessment and therapy are £95 per session and are based upon a 55 minute appointment.  Please refer to my website for private health insurance/solicitor/rehab company fees. I am a registered provider with most major health insurance companies including BUPA, Axa ppp, Aviva etc. Quotes for clinical supervision and teaching and training packages can be provided upon request.

Further information

Please phone, text or email with any enquiries or to arrange an initial assessment appointment. I am happy to have a chat with you about what you are looking for prior to arranging an initial assessment appointment, so you can decide if I am the right therapist for you. At the initial assessment we will aim to clarify problems, understand how these developed and discuss treatment options. If you then decide to go ahead with therapy, appointments are offered either weekly or fortnightly.
