About me

I have over 20 years of experience in mental health and I can offer an individual assessment that helps you understand fully what is going on for you.  I can then offer a bespoke therapeutic approach that best suits your needs whilst making this experience as easy and as comfortable as possible.  I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches which include  include Compassionate Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as more traditional approaches such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. 

I will provide a comprehensive assessment aiming to help you feel as comfortable as possible which will then lead on to an approach best suited to your needs. The aim is to help you move forward with your life with a greater understanding of your experiences and the way they have shaped you. Importantly you will also have a greater understanding of your strengths as well as access to tools that you can use in the future as you navigate life's ups and downs.

Further information

With over 20 years of experience as a Clinical Psychologist in a range of settings, I have listened to many people talk of their experiences. I believe in first providing a compassionate safe space where people feel  comfortable sharing their issues. Even if talking is difficult for you I will try and make the process easier by structuring the sessions so that we can figure out how to help you. The first and most important aspect of my work is offering a warm and non-judgemental space to try and help you and then agreeing together a way to help you move forwards.
