About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist providing high quality, professional, caring psychological assessment and therapy for children, young people and families as well as individual adults or couples. I have worked as a psychologist in the NHS, private sector organisations and charitable organisations for many years and also supervise fellow psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists.
I am committed to first understanding the difficulties you are experiencing and then working together to identify goals and the most appropriate and helpful way to reach those. They key to successful therapy is a comfortable and trusting relationship and I would encourage you to use the assessment session to get a feel of how it would be to work together.

Clinical Psychology training equips practitioners to work from a range of approaches. This means that we can think together about which approach might most suit you, as well as which approach is most well evidenced for the difficulties you are experiencing. I therefore would draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), systemic approaches and more longer term approaches. I am also interested in using techniques from more recent approaches to therapy such as Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

I realise that the decision to seek help embark on therapy is not one taken lightly, and I would work with you to ensure that there is a clear plan to help you attain your goals.
