I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and I have over 11 years of experience of working in the NHS and in private practice. I offer consultations and therapy to individuals, couples, and groups. I have a specialist interest in working with relationship issues.
The relationships we have, in the past and present, and our social and cultural contexts, can impact how we feel about ourselves and others. This includes how much we think we deserve to be loved and cared for, how able we are to trust others and to communicate our needs.
I will work with you to aid an understanding of some of the causes of your difficulties, to recognise relationship patterns and to enhance your own resources for managing your emotions. This process can be challenging at times. I hope to support you to feel safe enough to engage in the process of therapy with the aim of improving your emotional well being.
I draw upon evidence based models of therapy in order to tailor interventions to meet your unique needs. I have training in, and experience of using, cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and systemic family therapy. I have completed further specialist training in couple and family therapy and I am experienced in working with a wide range of relationship issues.
I work with clients with a range of presenting problems including abuse, ADHD, adjustment difficulties, anxiety, bereavement, codependency, depression, body image issues, learning disabilities, life and work stress, low self esteem, relationship issues and trauma.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training & Qualifications:
I undertook my Doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at The University of Surrey. Since qualifying I have undertaken further specialist training in couple and family therapy completing a graduate and postgraduate certificate in Couple & Family Therapy at the Institute of Family Therapy. Most recently I completed the Graduate; and postgraduate Certificate, in couple and individual counselling and psychotherapy at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships.
I have 11 years experience of working in the NHS and I am experienced in working with individuals and couples to enable them to make sense of their experiences, feelings and relationships. I use an integrative approach tailoring therapy to meet client’s specific needs. I am able to draw upon my experience and training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and systemic family therapy.
I am a warm, empathic and reflective practitioner. I will work with you to create a safe space within which you can talk about any issues which you would like to make sense of and learn to manage. This can sometimes include thinking about both the past and present including thinking about your context and social and cultural factors.
