I’m a Clinical Psychologist specialising in depression and anxiety, self-esteem, relationships, and stress. With over 12 years experience of working with adolescents and adults, I have learnt that most of the difficulties we face are rooted in our relationship with both ourselves and others. When we can shift this, the challenges we face become easier to deal with.
I have a particular interest in high functioning anxiety and high achievers. If on the surface you look like you have it all together, but the silent voice of self-doubt plagues you, then we will likely work well together.
My style in therapy is collaborative, engaging, and not very formal. I don't take myself too seriously, can be slightly irreverant, and enjoy taking a creative and practical approach to problem solving. I am what I call a 'why person' and like to work with the heart of a matter, rather than treat symptoms at a surface level.I use an integrative approach in therapy, which means I draw from a number of different theories, depending on what is most appropriate. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Systems Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy.
The research is really clear that the outcome of therapy is directly linked to the relationship you have with your therapist. Because of this, I offer a free 20 minute consultation via Zoom to determine whether I am the best fit for you. Outside of therapy I am a mum of three, running enthusiast, music lover, and people person at heart.
