About me

I am a highly qualified and HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist. I have extensive clinical experience in NHS settings (including adult mental health and clinical health psychology); the voluntary sector; schools; and private practice. I currently provide evidence-based psychological therapies for adults and children with mild to severe psychological difficulties.

Services provided:

  • In-person and Online Psychological Therapy
  • EMDR
  • Workplace Mental Health and Wellbeing Services
  • Supervision
  • Psychology Expert Witness Services

I can help you to address a range of mental health issues and welcome clients from all backgrounds. I offer both short and long term therapy. We can discuss your needs and, through assessment, we can select the most appropriate approaches and type of therapy for you. As a Counselling Psychologist I can draw from a number of different therapies, affording us flexibility in how we work together. My hope is that I can be a useful resource and provide a supportive relationship within which you can make meaningful change.

It can be anxiety provoking in attending therapy and I will aim to put you at ease. I provide a calm, safe, non-judgemental and validating space for therapy, with regular reviews and feedback used to ensure effectiveness and satisfaction. I will listen carefully to you and can be flexible in terms of whether a more or less directive approach to therapy is required. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology; M.Sc. Psychological Therapy in Primary Care; and B.Sc. Psychology Honours. 

I am trained in multiple models of therapy such as EMDR (effective in treating PTSD), CBT, ACT, Person-Centred approaches and Play Therapies. I will aim to work collaboratively with you, using a tailored approach in order to meet your specific needs and goals. I have worked in diverse services and settings including adult mental health, clinical health psychology, cancer services and primary schools. Alongside my private practice, I hold a senior role within a specialist NHS psychology service that supports individuals with long-term health conditions. 

I am passionate about the work that I do within mental health and I have helped individuals with various types of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and relationship difficulties. In addition, I have particular interests in working with eating disorders, long-term physical health conditions, and trauma. I possess additional training in each of these areas. 

I am a trained and qualified supervisor with many years of experience providing supervision for qualified practitioners and trainees.
