About me


You or a family member may be experiencing psychological difficulties that you would like expert help with. It can be useful to seek out support from a trusted and highly skilled professional. I am a Clinical Psychologist and provide assessment and therapy services to adults, children, adolescents, couples and families experiencing psychological and emotional difficulties. I have been qualified as a Clinical Psychologist for more than 15 years and I am registered with the HCPC.

I utilise a range of therapeutic approaches such as CBT, ACT, Systemic and Solution Focussed to provide a bespoke therapy service based on your needs. I have experience working with a range of psychological issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression and low mood, OCD, eating disorders, work-related stress, relationship problems, divorce, anger management, trauma, low self-esteem, and behavioural problems.

Self-referrals are welcomed and I offer clinics in Derby and Nottingham. A free 15-minute initial telephone consultation is offered to all new clients. Please contact me for further information.
