About me

We continue to take on new clients throughout the Coronavirus Outbreak. Sessions are being delivered by video call and telephone.

Our Clinical Psychology service provides assessment and psychotherapy for children, adults, families and parents.

Our view is that mental health and wellbeing is resultant of a complex interplay between psychological, biological, sociological and environmental factors. Our approach to assessing and treating mental health difficulties reflects this philosophy.

Specialisms include child and adolescent mental health, developmental disorders (ASD, ADHD, ODD, PDA etc), attachment difficulties, ante and perinatal mental health conditions (antenatal and postnatal depression, anxiety and puerperal psychosis), adult mental health difficulties associated with the parenting role and developmental trauma (childhood abuse and neglect).

Training, qualifications & experience

Our Clinical Psychologists are registered with the HCPC and Chartered by the British Psychological Society.

Our therapeutic models include Compassion Focused Therapy, Theraplay, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Schema Therapy.

We have undertaken specialist training in mother and baby mental health, developmental trauma (childhood abuse and looked after children's services), ASD and enduring adult mental health presentations.

We are also experienced in providing consultation, training and workshops as well as supporting schools to support their staff and pupils' emotional wellbeing.

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

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.

Our therapy centre has disabled access and disabled toilet facilities.
