About me

I am incredibly passionate about my work and truly believe that we all have the power to create change in our lives.

I can provide you with a safe space where you can begin to understand your difficulties. Using a warm and containing approach we can explore how your difficulties are being maintained and what barriers are preventing you living your life as you wish. We can work at a pace that feels right for you so that you are able to grow and find meaning in life. I can teach you skills and techniques that can instigate change, increase confidence and bring about a sense of empowerment.

​My therapeutic approach draws mainly on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, however where appropriate I like to be integrative in my approach and so also draw on Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.

​I can help you with feelings of depression (sense of hopelessness, isolation, lack of connection with others), anxiety (excessive worry, racing thoughts, social embarrassment), obsessive compulsive disorder (compulsions, intrusive thoughts and images), perinatal depression, post traumatic stress, phobias, low self-esteem, and anger.

Further information

I have over 13 years clinical experience. I began working as an Assistant Psychologist with children with profound and multiple learning disabilities and autism, and have gone on to work with violence and anger, brain injury and in primary and secondary mental health care, including crisis care. I have expertise in older adult mental health care and memory difficulties. I am currently working in NHS IAPT services delivering high intensity CBT interventions.

I don't believe that I, or any other therapist can be somebodies 'magic pill' but I do believe that with help and support we all have the ability to make sense of ourselves and the way we think, feel, and behave.

I also believe that you have to find the right therapy and therapist for your needs and accessing support privately offers an opportunity to elicit more choice over the care that you will receive.
