About me

I am a registered HCPC Counselling Psychologist (Reg: PYL 38107) and a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (Reg: 269442).

My belief that one size does not fit all means I work from a Pluralistic standpoint drawing upon various models of therapy. Taking a Person-Centred approach to Counselling Psychology means the therapeutic alliance forms a place of safety where change can occur and informs the basis of approaches used, including CBT, Person-centred, Narrative approach, Systemic, and Psychodynamic.

Having many years of experience working in a variety of settings mean I am skilled at working one-one, group formats, with families, statutory services, in-patient hospitals, and Multidisciplinary teams (MDTs).

I work with a range of presenting difficulties across the lifespan in person and online. Fundamentally, my identity as a Counselling Psychologist involves following the scientist-practitioner model, incorporating research and individual formulations to understand a person's difficulties and inform therapeutic approach and evidence based practice.

I have experience in providing therapy for a range of mood and anxiety disorders and have particular expertise in working with those on the Autism Spectrum having provided assessments and therapeutic support to young people for a number of years.

I am an Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Practitioner with good outcomes for trauma, PTSD, OCD, Depression and anxiety. Training provided by EMDR Academy UK.
