Hello, I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society and HCPC, working locally for the NHS and within private practice. I am able to offer personable and professional assessment and therapy services to adults, children and families struggling with a range of emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties.
I work collaboratively with young people, adults and families to help them think about emotional difficulties in a way that makes sense to them, and to identify and agree goals that they are motivated to work towards.
Individual therapy is available for those with emotional or mental health difficulties including depression, anxiety, OCD, post-traumatic stress disorder, difficulties with self-harm, anger, difficulties within relationships or high levels of stress.
Therapeutic approaches will be considered with you in line with your assessment and goals for therapy. Clinical Psychologists are able to take an integrative approach, drawing on different therapeutic approaches to suit you. Therapeutic approaches used include Cognitive Behaviour, Systemic (family), Cognitive Analytic, Attachment and Mentalisation-based approaches.
Workshops are also run locally and available on request, covering topics from parenting to challenging worry day to day.
