About me

I think it is completely normal that at different points in our lives, we need help with our emotional obstacles. I believe therapy helps people to re-connect with their strengths and resources. The approaches that I might include in my work are:

  • Attachment theory, an approach which considers early childhood and care giving experiences and how these influence current relationships with self and others
  • Narrative therapy, as a way to think about which stories have become a way of expressing someone’s identity
  • Systemic therapy, as an approach to think about family relationships and role of each family member in this system
  • Social inequalities, as a way of thinking about socio-economic factors, like money, education, ethnicity and how these impact on people’s health and well-being
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy, to identify the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Consequently I am an integrative practitioner which means that after the initial consultation, I tailor psychological interventions to people’s personal circumstances.

I am experienced in supporting families with children, who live with complex health conditions and/or life-limiting conditions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a degree in Psychology (BSc(Hons)) and doctorate training in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych). I have completed a range of additional therapy training, including in family therapy, compassionate mind therapy and leadership and management.

I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and my registration number is PYL3525

I have focused my research on young people’s experiences of stress and mental health in both secondary schools and at University. I have also published my research on the application of psychological formulations in teams working for the National Health Services.
