About me

I am a Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist with experience working in the NHS, private and voluntary sectors. I employ an empathic, warm and nonjudgmental approach to therapy and love working collaboratively with clients to improve their wellbeing. I recognise the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship and aim to help the people I work with feel listened to and understood. At the beginning of therapy I typically focus on trying to gain a shared understanding of a client's difficulties, where they might have come from, and what might be keeping them going. Following this, therapy is focused on working together to build on the client's strengths, meet their goals and make positive changes.

I am skilled at treating a range of mental health difficulties including eating disorders, anxiety disorders (encompassing OCD, social anxiety, panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, and separation anxiety), trauma/ PTSD, low mood, poor self-esteem, and emotion regulation difficulties. My specialist areas are working with eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and child and adolescent mental health.

Within my NHS work, I enjoy providing clinical supervision for clinical psychologists, trainee counselling psychologists, psychiatrists, and trainee clinical psychologists. In addition I lecture on the University of Surrey doctoral clinical psychology programme.

I offer a range of NICE guideline recommended therapies including: Cognitive Behavioural, Acceptance and Commitment, Narrative, Compassion Focussed, Dialectical Behavioural and Mindfulness therapies. I believe in tailoring therapy to meet my client's needs, and may draw on a range of different therapeutic techniques and models in my work. I offer short or long term therapy depending on preference.

Please call or email me if you would like an appointment. I offer a free 10-20 minute phone consultation to find out more about your presenting concerns, talk about your hopes for therapy, and to see whether I would be the right person to meet your needs.

For specialist eating disorder therapy please see www.treatingdisorders.com for more information about the therapies I offer.
