About me

I am a BPS Associate Fellow and Chartered Psychologist, HCPC registered and expert in Trauma, Loss, Anxiety, Depression and Grief; with 20 years of clinical experience.

When faced with adversity, stress or trauma who you are, how you are and what your place in the world is changes profoundly.

For many people this is a frightening, distressing and disorientating experience and seeking professional support to get you through it is completely normal.

Everybody needs help and care to cope with life's unexpected turns and if we don't receive appropriate support we can all develop Anxiety, Depression and other complications.

Overcoming life's distressing events and finding a way forward is possible. In the counselling process with me, we can take it one step at a time, looking at what would help you develop a feeling of psychological safety, a sense of personal agency and what doing the right thing for you means.

My role will be to listen, to accept you unconditionally and to help contain your distress; whilst also deepening your understanding of yourself and your choices.

Although you may not be able to change the circumstances of your life, what you can have some control over is your attitude. I have seen it time and time again. Mental Health difficulties and distressing life events do not have to be catastrophic. The human spirit has the power to rise and grow in the face of it, with courage, dignity and wisdom.

If you would like to take that first step, give me a call today. I am happy to answer any questions and help you figure out best next steps.

I work with couples, individuals, families in both face to face or digitally (Via skype or facetime). Meeting online has the benefit of you not having to travel and to do the session from the comfort of your home. We go with what you prefer.

The sessions last between 50 mins and occur usually once or twice a week depending on the client needs.

It is ideal that once you meet me and decide you'd like to work together that you have a minimum of 6 sessions to make it meaningful for you.

I have experience of treating Anxiety, Depression, Panic, Anorexia, Bulimia, Trauma, Rape, Grief, Complicated Grief, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Loss, Neglect in childhood, Abandonment, Abuse, Self- Harming, Gambling, Long-term illness, Terminal illness, Acute Pain Syndrome, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Mid-life issues.
