I am an experienced, BPS Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, working on-line at the current time. I have been a Psychologist for more than twenty years, and have a wealth of experience having worked in health care organisations in the private and public sector both in the UK and overseas.
I see adult clients with a broad range of psychological difficulties and life issues (please see below). My particular interests are PTSD, anxiety - including generalised anxiety, panic attacks and phobias; depression and bipolar mood problems; relationship issues and work-related stress. I employ a number of different approaches in my work, including CBT, EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and mindfulness. I can also provide focused psychodynamic therapy and am interested in integrative approaches to clinical issues.
I am working on-line through the winter months. Please email me so that we can set up an arrangement - I will get back to you within a few hours. We will discuss your concerns and ascertain whether I am able to meet your needs. There is no obligation to continue after an initial discussion if you should not wish to do so. If your questions are not answered by reading this profile, then please email me and I will do my best to help.
