I am a HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist, experienced in a range of therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion-focused therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. I offer structured and exploratory therapy, allowing us to work towards a specific goal you have or to focus on make sense of your experiences in life so far. I offer a safe, kind and experienced online space during afternoons and evenings. I help clients with issues such as: anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, low mood, low self-esteem, relationship and family issues, stress, anger, feelings of being overwhelmed, isolation or loneliness, lack of motivation, work dissatisfaction, lack of meaning in life, sexuality and identity issues, and physical health problems. My approach is integrative and I work from a holistic perspective, believing optimal health and wellbeing comes from a balance of the body and mind.
Therapy is a journey where the road can often seem a little uncertain. It’s my job to help guide that journey in whatever way you need. What is certain is that taking time for yourself in a safe and experienced space will bring about changes in the way you understand, think, feel and behave in your life and with others. It might be that you’re looking for strategies to overcome certain patterns you feel you’ve become stuck in. Or perhaps it’s developing an ability to talk openly about how you feel. Perhaps you want to process events that have happened in your past or maybe you want help navigating difficulties in relationships. Perhaps you don’t know what you want but just that you want something! My sessions will focus on helping you to draw and build upon the resilience and life skills you already have (however limited you may feel they are!) to give you the tools to manage the difficulties of life. Together we will work to remove the barriers to the relationships you want, the ways you want to feel and the life you want to live.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at University College London (UCL) as a Clinical Psychologist and have worked for around seven years in the National Health Service (NHS), voluntary, private and charity sectors. I have wide-ranging experience of providing therapy on a one-to-one and group basis, working with families and providing consultation and training to professional organisations.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
It can be difficult to seek help and I hope to ease this by offering a safe environment with no obligations. Connection is key to effective therapy; in an initial consultation we would discuss what has led you to seek help and explore whether my approach is the right fit for you.
Initial consultations are £90 and sessions are available on a sliding scale between £90-130. Please feel open to email me to discuss your needs and we can set up a consultation.
Please note that my practice operates via video-call only.
