About me

Are you struggling with managing anxiety, low mood or emotions in general? You might be experiencing the impact of past trauma on your life? Do you want to process and make sense of these experiences, learning effective new ways to cope enabling you to move forward in your life.

I am a compassionate, experienced and knowledgeable principle clinical psychologist. I am also an accredited (BABCP) CBT therapist.  I currently work within the NHS and Privately.

My practice is collaborative and trauma informed, fully involving you in the process. My initial aim being to to create a sense of safety, where you can explore your difficulties openly.

I work with adults with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, emotion regulation difficulties, PTSD and complex trauma. I am trained in a range of evidenced based psychological treatment models including EMDR, CBT and DBT, which means the treatment can be tailored to meet your needs.   We will regularly review your goals for therapy and outcomes to ensure you are making the progress you are hoping for in therapy.

I offer a 15 minute free initial consultation by telephone on videocall. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or to book an initial call.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a highly experienced and compassionate therapist trained in a wide range of evidence based psychological treatment models. This means I can tailor interventions to meet your needs using model specific or more integrated approaches.

I have a doctorate in clinical psychology.   I have carried out additional training in a range of models including a post graduate certificate in CBT, intensive and specialist DBT training and EMDR 3 part training. I am accredited with the BABCP, meeting the highest standards in training and experience in CBT.  I am currently working as a principal psychologist in the NHS alongside private work.
