About me

No matter what you are going through I am here to listen and to help. Whether you feel you need a supportive space to talk through your difficulties, want to learn skills to cope with painful thoughts and feelings, or are looking to work through traumatic experiences, my aim is to help you find a way forward that suits you and your goals.

Life can be difficult and I am passionate about empowering people to work through it's challenges.  I offer a warm and empathetic space to support you in working through your difficulties and personalise my approach to suit your individual needs and goals for therapy.

I also like to introduce concepts from psychological and evolutionary science in easy-to-understand ways to help you make more sense of what's going on for you and how we can approach together it, to help you feel empowered in overcoming your challenges during therapy and well into the future after therapy stops.

I know that looking into therapy can be overwhelming and anxiety-provoking. There are so many options and different types of therapy it can be so hard to know where to start or what's the right fit for you.

I assure you that my approach is one of openness and warmth and I am happy to answer any questions or concerns and even point you in the right direction if I think there might be a better option for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

UK HCPC Registered and Chartered Psychologist

I have a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and graduated in 2016. I have worked in community, educational, and NHS settings from which I have experience working with a wide range of mental health concerns such as, depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, eating disorders, low self-esteem, bereavement and PTSD.

I have training in various evidenced-based approaches to therapy including person-centred counselling, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Compassion-focussed therapy.

Okay, but what does all of that actually mean for you?

My knowledge of psychological concepts and training in different therapies enables me to personalise my approach to your concerns, goals, and circumstances whilst drawing on knowledge and practices based on scientific research and evidence.

In particular, my practice is informed by developments from neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and attachment theories, which I employ to help those I work with develop a rich understanding of themselves, what they are going through, and how to work with their experience to overcome difficulties and enrich their lives.
