About me

Whether it’s anxiety, trauma, stress, low mood, difficult thoughts, low confidence, relationship difficulties or a whole host of other potential reasons for emotional distress I have nearly 2 decades experience working within the NHS and private practice with a full range of psychological difficulties. I also work at the University of Liverpool helping to train clinical psychologists entering the profession. I take a collaborative approach with clients to identify their current difficulties and what therapeutic approach might help make positive steps towards change.

I have particular expertise in medical psychology, working with individuals struggling with their physical health or a journey linked with their physical well being - this might include coming to terms with poor health or infertility or a health journey with demanding treatment.

Whatever your struggle I would be pleased to take time to talk with you in a brief free telephone consultation (usually 10-15 minutes) to identify if I am the right therapist for you. Don’t hesitate to reach out, and if I can’t help I will try and support you on to identifying someone who may be able to assist.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
