About me

I am a sensitive clinical psychologist who combines an aptitude for multidisciplinary team work and client engagement, with strengths in assessment and evidence-based treatment. Hardworking and enthusiastic, excellent verbal and written communication skills and demonstrated ability to conduct and publish research.   I provide a combination of evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy, premised around a client- centred view that a solution tailored to each individual or family is essential for lasting improvement. All treatment is offered and agreed following a thorough assessment of the presenting difficulties, guided by clients' goals and informed by treatment guidelines provided by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). I am experienced in working with brief and longer-term therapy needs.

I particularly enjoy working with adults and families, with a range of presenting difficulties. I am experienced in working with PTSD (both adults and children), depression, anxiety, self-harm, OCD as well as broader difficulties relating to eating, sleep, and grief and loss. I am experienced in working with autism spectrum and behavioural difficulties in children and adolescents. I aspire to provide the highest standards of psychological therapy and my work is regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

There is a single step in order to access the ground floor clinic.
