About me

I'm an experienced Psychologist and run a coaching and therapy service called thiswomanswork.uk, where we offer short-term, goal-focused coaching or therapy for working women, looking at all life issues.

We offer short-term, goal focused, ‘I just really need to sort this out now’ sort of therapy or coaching. This type of therapy or coaching is based upon cognitive behavioural therapy models. There is a clear focus of the sessions and you work through how your thoughts and feelings impact your behaviour and how your behaviour impacts your thoughts and feelings. You will develop a picture of why things are the way they are now for you and learn techniques to help you move forward. It’s also worth saying these sessions can be more integrative, using techniques that will best help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m an Occupational Psychologist with a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council and the British Psychological Society. I’ve worked with people with a variety of different mental health issues when working for the NHS in Sussex since 2011 and offer consultancy services to organisations around mental health at work. I’ve trained in all key therapeutic modalities and completed numerous therapeutic sessions where I am always supervised.

I mainly offer therapy to women centred on managing work related issues, issues around work/life balance, family and fertility issues, but it’s easier to probably talk to me first to see if I can help. Or for more information please look here: thiswomanswork.uk
