I am a warm, friendly and curious person, and a qualified Clinical Psychologist. I have over 12 years of experience working psychologically in NHS mental health settings.
I offer a safe space to help you find ways to cope with the inevitable suffering we can all face in life, and move towards living a more meaningful life. My work primarily involves offering individuals the time to feel listened to and heard, to explore, re-locate, and reconnect to our authentic inner self that may be deeply over-shadowed by fear, traumatic memories, self-doubt, difficult thoughts, worries, sadness, loss of motivation and/or feeling stuck in life. This may be through a number of methods but often involves reconnecting to our inner needs, fundamental values and deep emotional states that may have been repressed, avoided or pushed aside.
I offer both short and long term work; this can include formulating and understanding your current situations or struggles, offering ways of coping with challenges, healing trauma, reconnecting with your values and helping to work through barriers in order to create a meaningful and joyful life.
I have worked in specialist NHS services with young people and adults experiencing their first episode of psychosis; psychosis is often a result of heavy amounts of stress and struggling to cope with overwhelming emotions, something we can all experience from time to time. I have also worked in specialist PTSD services with adults, compassionately helping people recover from complex trauma. I am very interested in working with people with depression, anxiety, those who are searching for a meaning in life, or just trying to understand their day to day existence.
I am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I am registered both with the HCPC (Health Professionals Council). I am very interested in the wide field of spirituality; I am trained in mindfulness-based therapy and a trained yoga teacher. I am also interested in transpersonal psychology and consciousness.
As a psychologist, I am more than aware that a good therapeutic relationship is very important, therefore I am happy to meet/talk on the phone for an initial consultation session to help you in your decision.
