About me

Hello and welcome!

I am a clinical psychologist with over 14 years experience of working with people with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties in the NHS and private sector. Until recently I held a senior post in the NHS and ran a private practice in Surrey my spare time. I then decided to leave the NHS to set up a dedicated therapy clinic in Banstead with a colleague where I offer psychological support to children, young people, adults and families as well as consultation and training to professionals. As a clinical psychologist I am trained to work with people of all ages and abilities and with a wide variety of issues using evidence-based techniques.

In order to do this I draw on:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

  • Systemic Family Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy

  • Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)

  • Mindfulness

This allows me to tailor my therapeutic approach to each individual or family depending on the nature of their issues, their preferences and what is proven to work scientifically and in my experience.

My aim is always to provide and safe and confidential space in which my clients feel able to talk openly about their difficulties and consider new ways of addressing them. I also like to work collaboratively with them to find the approach that suits them best.

If you are concerned about your wellbeing or that of a loved one please feel free to contact me for an informal conversation about how I might be able to help.

Training, qualifications & experience

Prior to completing a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Surrey I obtained a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Leeds. Since becoming qualified I have achieved Chartered status with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and become a Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have also completed training courses on:

  • Solution Focused Therapy (BRIEF)

  • Narrative Therapy (British Psychological Society)

  • Systemic Therapy (Central and North West London NHS Trust)

  • Strengthening Families Programme (Oxford Brookes University)

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
