About me

I am a practitioner psychologist with experience working with adults and children whether in 1:1 or family sessions.  I tailor therapy to client need and draw upon a range of therapies such as 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 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 labelling client experience.
