About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist working in Newcastle upon Tyne. I offer assessment and therapy for a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties. I have a specialist interest in working with people who are struggling emotionally as a consequence of physical health and/ or traumatic injury (such as car accidents). I have many years of experience in helping people with adjustment, anxiety and depression and overcoming traumatic experiences of injury or healthcare. I believe that everyone has the potential to live a life that they enjoy.

It is important to find the right type of therapy for you. The main therapeutic techniques I use are: Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and EMDR. I also incorporate mindfulness techniques where this is helpful. I will tailor therapy to meet your needs and work collaboratively with you throughout the process.

Starting therapy can be daunting and so I will strive to make it as manageable as possible through offering a compassionate and personalised approach to help you meet your goals. Please get in touch if you have any questions or think that I might be the right fit for you.
