About me

Do you have a particular issue support could help you with? Or perhaps you feel confused, stuck, overwhelmed, or unsure of what to do? I provide a safe, supportive, caring, confidential space to help us make sense of, and resolve the difficulties you are experiencing.

I understand that speaking to someone about your difficulties may feel daunting and can feel like a big step to take. Through my work I offer a thoughtful and valuing presence which allows exploration, reflection, and insight to take place, thereby supporting you along your journey of self-discovery, well-being and health.


Therapeutic Approaches

My desire to help others and make a meaningful difference led me to embark on 7 years of training in order to become a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. The doctorate and subsequent advanced training has enabled me to develop expertise in a variety of different therapeutic approaches. I am therefore able to tailor therapy to meet your individual needs by integrating the following therapeutic modalities:

  • Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness
  • Compassion Focussed-Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
  • Person-centred Therapy


Areas of Specialism

Over the last 15 years I have worked with people who present with difficulties ranging from mild to severe. This experience combined with ongoing training has enabled me to develop specialist knowledge and skills in working with the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Low mood and depression
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Relationship and Family difficulties
  • Divorce and separation
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Work-related stress
  • Anger
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Abuse and trauma
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Personality Disorders

I am also particularly interested in the link between our emotional and physical health. I therefore adopt a holistic approach to understanding your difficulties, and incorporate techniques that will enhance your psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.
