About me

You may have a clear idea of the issues you are struggling with, or you may not be sure. I offer psychological therapy that can support you to explore, understand and make changes in relation to the difficulties you currently face. Some difficulties may be recent and linked to a specific events, others may be more longstanding with different influences. You may be feeling stressed, alone, anxious, unfulfilled, angry, stuck, empty or lost in some way. A supportive and collaborative therapeutic relationship can help you understand and overcome these problems.

I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist offering individual therapy work to adults experiencing a range of difficulties including anxiety, panic, stress, depression, self esteem and relationship problems. Clinical psychology is an extensive, professionally regulated training which specialises in a range of therapy approaches, which can be tailored to your needs. Short term focused therapy or longer term exploratory work are available.

It's important to find a therapist and type of therapy that fits with what you need. I can offer extended assessment/trial therapy sessions to help decide together what might help.

I am registered as a practitioner psychologist with the HCPC professional regulatory body. I am also a full member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

This includes delivering specialist psychological therapy interventions to people with severe mental health difficulties in community and inpatient environments.

I am experienced in group work, staff training and reflective practice and individual therapy.

In addition to my clinical training I have completed a diploma in Psychodynamic Approaches to Later Life at the Tavistock Clinic and have completed an IEDTA accredited EDT therapy training (Experiential Dynamic Therapy).

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
