About me

Are you, overwhelmed with feelings of sadness and anxiety? Do you experience intense mood swings and frustration which get the better of you? Are your relationships suffering, worried about the impact on friends, family, work and career prospects?

Make the changes in your life with goal-oriented therapy.

I provide evidence-based brief or longer-term therapy to suit your individual needs and circumstances. I have 18 years of clinical experience, including 14 years within the NHS. I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My work is goal orientated and focused on helping you to make changes in your life for the better. I will help you to understand how your problems may have developed and how they are maintained.  I take a direct and down to earth approach with therapy to help you move forward by revising unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.

Therapies offered:

Integrative Psychotherapy

As a psychologist, I have trained in both cognitive and psychodynamic models of psychotherapy. I have worked across a wide range of mental health problems. I am able to draw on a range of theoretical orientations, evidence-based practices, and my extensive clinical experience to tailor therapy to meet your individual needs.

I am an accredited CAT Practitioner and Clinical Supervisor, with the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT).

Clinical Expertise

I held a senior position within the NHS, as the lead clinician for both the Cognitive Analytic Therapy service and the Mentalization-Based Therapy service. Over the course of my professional career, I have supervised and managed both qualified and trainee clinical and counselling psychologists.


Having graduated in 1998 from Royal Holloway College (University of London) with BSc (Hons) in Psychology, I went on to complete a Masters in Counselling Psychology at Regents College and then a Post Masters Diploma in Existential Counselling Psychology.

Continuing with my professional development, I attained a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) in 2012 and went on to attain accreditation as a CAT supervisor in 2014. Further developing my interest in working with complex cases I pursued clinical training in Mentalization-based Therapy and attained accreditation as an MBT Practitioner with the British Psychoanalytic Council in 2015.
