About me

I am a Qualified Clinical Psychologist who has worked in the NHS for 19 years and completed my Clinical Doctorate over 11 years ago.

I offer a comprehensive assessment prior to offering therapy drawing on various Psychological approaches ultimately working towards a positive change.

I work in an integrative way and tailor the therapy to the client’s needs. The therapies I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Compassion Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness, and Personal Construct Therapy.

I am accredited through the British Psychological Society and I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council.

You can phone or email me to make an appointment. I offer a free initial telephone consultation which helps us decide how I might be able to help. Appointments thereafter are in person at a consistent confidential venue or remotely for example via zoom.

I am registered with Axa, Aviva and Vitality.

Wheelchair user access

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.
