About me

I am a practitioner psychologist qualified at doctoral level. i have experience working with adults and children whether in 1:1 sessions or family sessions.  I tailor therapy to client need and draw upon a range of therapies such as mindfulness-based approaches, CBT and person centred therapy. I always aim to understand unique client experience and match therapy to what seems most comfortable to the client. I have found in my work that "off the shelf" therapies or approaches such as mindfulness can sometimes be too demanding or difficult for clients and I will always work collaboratively with clients to blend therapy to what they feel they can manage or cope with.

As a counselling psychologist my approach is client-focused and flexible. Often clients feel that diagnostic labels do not capture their unique story. Doctoral training in counselling psychology is very much focused on taking care to make meaning of individual experience and complex factors that might lead to mental distress without classifying client experience. I very much believe that clients simply need a guiding hand to heal themselves and that this is my role.
