About me

I offer psychological therapy in a safe, empathic space, grounded in established humanistic models of therapy. With over 20 years experience in psychological services and doctorate level training, I am able to work with a broad range of difficulties and presentation. I draw on a wide range of research based psychological therapies to offer individually tailored therapy focusing on individual goals for therapy. I specialise in adult mental health, depression and anxiety and more complex treatment- resistant difficulties including personality issues, emotional dysregulation and loss adjustment. I work primarily with adults and couples but also offer services for children and young people and families. I have appointments available now and offer flexible ways of working.
