BA PhD MSc MBA Consultant Clinical Psychologist

About me

I am a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist with many years' experience of working with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, emotion regulation difficulties, work stress and burnout. I also work with people who have physical problems, to help them manage long term conditions and chronic pain.

I work with individuals and groups, and also provide training and run workshops for a range of health professionals. While in the NHS I set up staff well-being services to support employees, and I have an interest in occupational health and well-being.

You might have struggled with anxiety or depression for some time, or perhaps have experienced a trauma that you find it hard to move on from. It may be that you are not feeling exactly anxious or depressed, but just want to make changes in your life, and need some support in working out what these are, and making those changes.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist and coach, with over 30 years' experience of working in the NHS, both as a senior clinician and in setting up and running psychological therapies services.

I am an accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist and an Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing practitioner. I am also trained in DialecticalBehaviour Therapy and am a teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.

I am registered with the Health Care Professions Council as a Clinical Psychologist.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

My office is on the first floor but there is a lift as well as stairs.
