About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. I work with children, young people and their families, providing support for a range of difficulties, including anxiety and depression. I have specialist experience supporting families when a child has a life-threatening or life-limiting physical health condition, across inpatient and outpatient settings; including adjustment to diagnosis, procedural anxiety, body image, self-esteem and identity difficulties, cognitive difficulties, eating difficulties, and bereavement support.

I hold expertise in a range of therapeutic models, including Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness and Systemic family therapy; drawing on these models in their purest forms and working integratively to incorporate the most helpful approach to fit YOU.

It is not easy meeting a complete stranger and sharing some of your most difficult thoughts and experiences in a way that might be quite new for you. As a warm and empathetic individual, I aim to create a genuine, transparent, collaborative space in which you can be heard, as a strong foundation on which to base our talking and work together to move forward.
