About me

Welcome. I am a highly experienced Specialist Psychologist and Psychotherapist/Counsellor, providing psychological assessments, and therapy for both individuals and couples. I work with children, adolescents and adults on a broad range of issues, including, depression, rumination, bipolar disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), anxiety, worry, stress, OCD, eating disorders, ADHD, Autism, PTSD, early onset psychosis, self-harm/suicide ideation, grief/bereavement, relationship issues, and behavioural/emotional regulation issues. 

I provide a non-judgmental and safe therapeutic environment where people can feel at ease, talk openly and reflect on their experiences. I am experienced in a range of psychotherapeutic approaches such as Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapies (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT). I have a particular interest in mindfulness, guided imagery and inner child work which can enhance a person's ability to experience a deeper connection with themselves and others. In my experience, these valuable tools tend to lead to improved mental well-being and more fulfilling life.

My research interests include exploring the function and conceptualisation of worry and rumination and exploring how individuals can become more in control of their thoughts and emotions. I have presented my research at the National Clinical Conference 2013 on, Worry, Loneliness and Coping Styles, and a number of papers at The National Counselling Psychology Conference on, (1) The role of Worry and Rumination, 2017 (2) Repetitive Negative Thinking in Adolescents 2017 (3) Worry: overlooked by Counselling Psychology and overshadowed by the Medical Model 2018 (4) Conceptualisation of Worry 2019. My current research is focused on exploring concepts and therapies which could help individuals regulate their emotions more effectively.

Your Sincerely
