About me

I offer a free 15 minute Zoom call so you can get an idea of what it may be like to work with me and to ask questions - there is absolutely no obligation to book any further contacts.

I am an Acting Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist based in Shropshire. I only offer online work via Zoom. There is a strong evidence base for the efficacy of therapy via video platforms and it affords greater flexibility for both parties. 

I offer sessions primarily for people who want to change how they relate to themselves and others; people who have experienced trauma (with associated low mood and anxiety); and people who struggle with regulating their emotions. 

I also offer clinical supervision for practicing therapists.

I have trained in the key psychotherapies: CBT, Systemic, Person Centred and Psychodynamic. I have post-doctoral training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy: an approach evidenced to be effective where numerous other approaches have not.

I can offer assessment and time limited work to identify and address key issues that may keep people stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving. This involves practical solutions and coping mechanisms. I also offer deeper work that explores the multiple processes underlying behaviour that are chiefly out of conscious awareness. 

I have 30 years experience of using counselling and therapy to support people. My key interests are anxiety, stress and trauma. I also specialise in working with interpersonal issues.
