About me

Welcome. The fact that you are visiting this page means that you are looking for support. This in itself can be a huge step. You might be looking for help with a specific difficulty, or perhaps things just don’t feel right and you’re not quite sure why.

Is anxiety holding you back?

Is it hard to stay focused as you have such a busy mind?

Are you feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next?

Perhaps anxiety is stopping you from living your life as you want it. You deserve to enjoy your life, which is why I chose to specialise in supporting people with anxiety, stress and PTSD.

Everyone will experience difficult times in their lives and may need that extra support. I can provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where we can explore this together. 

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have over 10 years of experience working in mental health settings across the NHS, charity sector and independent practice. 

My passion is supporting individuals to achieve a better psychological wellbeing to live a fuller life. Collaboration with you is central to my approach, together we will build an understanding of your difficulties and plan as to how we might address them.

I use a range of evidence-based treatments according to the needs of the clients. This means that I may draw on more than one psychological model to best fit you. The main models I use to inform my practice include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). I also use Mindfulness, Systemic approaches and Psychodynamic concepts.

Why see a Clinical Psychologist?
There are lots of different types of therapists out there such as Clinical & Counselling Psychologists, counsellors, CBT practitioners and life coaches, all with different skills, qualifications and fees. It can be really confusing to know where to start. During your free consultation we can think about what type of support is right for you, and if I feel you would benefit from a different type of practitioner, I will inform you of this.  

As a Clinical Psychologist, I have had extensive training to doctorate level. My aims are to reduce distress and improve psychological wellbeing of clients. I am trained to work with a diverse range of clients to understand their difficulties or distress and to support the individual to develop skills and strategies to manage differently. Clinical Psychologists are able to use their extensive training and ability to use a range evidence-based treatments to suit each individual.
