About me

I am an experienced Counselling Psychologist (CPsychol) and a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Within my practice, I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy to individual adults, adolescents, children from aged 5, couples and families, who display a variety of presentations and levels of severity. 

Support from a psychologist can be helpful for anyone, in any situation, or of any background. In life, you may find yourself struggling to cope with or process your current experience. This may involve feeling helpless, hopeless, confused, stuck and frustrated either personally or professionally. It is ok, not to be ok. However, you deserve to be heard. By engaging in talking therapy, we can relieve the difficult emotions and support you in rebuilding your life... to help you become the best possible version of yourself.

As a Counselling Psychologist, I work in a collaborative way with each client and endeavours to tailor the approach to suit the needs of each individual in support of their goals.

I offer a variety of short-term and longer-term evidenced-based approaches including person centred therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, acceptance, and commitment therapy, and compassion focused therapy. As a counselling psychologist, my knowledge and skills facilitate thorough and empowering assessments, formulations and treatment plans, whilst striving to help the client realise their full capabilities and potential.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have accumulated a wealth of experience gained from working in settings such as NHS, community and charitable organisations and educational settings.

From these, I am well versed in working with a wide range of issues and problems including: depression/low mood; anxiety; stress; chronic illness; chronic pain; cancer; bereavement/grief; sexual health; LGBTQIA+; gender or identity; relationships; trauma; childhood sexual abuse; addictions; life transitions; low self-esteem; and many other psychological difficulties and issues.

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.
