About me

I am a qualified clinical psychologist with twenty years of experience working with people with a range of psychological difficulties. This experience enables the people that I work with to feel confident that I can understand and improve their situation. I am approachable and supportive and provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which to work towards the goals that clients identify, supporting them to lead happier and more meaningful, balanced lives.

I am able to use a number of evidence-based approaches and work together with the client to develop and tailor the therapy, or combination of therapies, that work best for them. I can draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Systemic approaches, amongst others. Psychological therapy is a focused and active process where we work together and aim to resolve difficulties as quickly as possible.

What would happen?
It is important that you find a therapist that feels like a good 'fit' for you, and as a part of this I am happy to talk on the telephone about your difficulties and my approach to help you to decide if you would like to arrange an initial session

In the first session we would talk in more detail about the kind of difficulties you have, what goals you might have for therapy, answer questions that you may have about therapy, and I would explain what kind of therapies we could use. You are welcome to bring someone with you to this session if that feels more comfortable. If you decide to continue we would agree a plan for therapy and a timescale in which we review regularly to ensure that you are getting what you want and need from therapy.

During this process I would be respectful of the potentially anxiety provoking nature of talking about personal difficulties and of considering therapy, and would tailor my approach to suit you. If you are finding it hard to talk I will ask more questions, and if you have a lot to say then I will listen more.

What problems can I help with?

These are some of the reasons that people might come to see me:

  • Anxiety (e.g. social anxiety, general anxiety, panic, OCD)
  • Depression/feeling low
  • Low self-esteem
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Work related stress and burnout
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Childhood events
  • Anger difficulties
  • Physical health difficulties (e.g. pain management, injury, health conditions)

I also have specialist training in the neuropsychological assessment of adults and older adults following brain injury and diagnosis of dementia, stroke etc. This includes neuropsychological assessment and cognitive rehabilitation, as well as working with family members.
