I have been providing therapy within the NHS and private sector for over 10 years. I have worked across the full spectrum of client groups and helped people to overcome a wide range of difficulties.
I believe in a positive, person centred approach to psychology which emphasises people's strengths and resources, and focuses not on labels, but on helping people to live the best life they possibly can.
I believe that psychological distress is something that can, and does, happen to anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation. Even though we might feel highly distressed or overwhelmed, this does not mean that it is our fault or there is something wrong with us. It also does not mean we cannot do something about it. I believe both that life is extremely difficult at times and that people have what it takes to cope with it, even if they sometimes need some extra support.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a Doctor of Clinical Psychology I am trained in multiple different approaches and work with my clients to customise therapy to best suit their specific needs and personalities. I specialise in helping people to manage anxiety using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and helping people deal with traumatic experiences using EMDR.
My Doctorate and professional research experience also mean that I am familiar with the latest research and evidence based practices.
I have additional degrees in Psychology and Philosophy. I am an active member of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science and multiple Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and physical health psychology special interest groups.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
