About me

I am an experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist who has worked in a wide range of public (NHS) and private settings for over fifteen years. I work with children and young people of different ages alongside their parents/carers (including looked after children and adopted children). I can offer individual therapy, parenting support and family therapy interventions. I also work with adults therapeutically. I adopt a supportive and person centred approach and I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship as a mechanism for change. I also believe that by creating the right conditions for personal growth and change most people can find meaningful solutions to their difficulties.

I have worked with children, young people and adults experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties and I would describe my approach as Integrative and Holistic. I draw on a range models of therapy to inform my work including person centred, cognitive-behavioural, systemic/narrative approaches and psychodynamic and mindfulness. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation Re-processing (EMDR) therapy which is an effective approach for people who have experienced traumatic experiences or adverse life events.

I also offer psychological consultation to public and private organisations.

I have a consulting room in Sevenoaks central which is easily accessible by public transport and by car.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a qualified Clinical Psychologist for fifteen years. I have since undertaken further training in narrative practice which focuses on the stories people bring to therapy and also Eye Movement Desenistisation Re-processing (EMDR) therapy which was originally developed for people who have experienced traumatic experiences but is now being used with a very wide range of presenting difficulties. I work with a variety of presenting issues such as school difficulties, behavioural difficulties, low mood/depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, obsessive behaviours, eating problems, relationship difficulties (including family difficulties), stress, lack of confidence, work stress, drug and alcohol dependence, performance anxiety, life transitions, post traumatic stress, attachment difficulties, mood swings and many more.

I adopt a non-judgemental and supportive approach to my clients and believe that given the right conditions we are all able to make changes to our lives for the better. I am interested in the personal stories that my clients bring and how difficulties have arisen through context and circumstances. I use a formulation approach and develop a therapeutic plan based on this and in participation with my clients.
