About me

Thanks for reading!

I am a Clinical Psychologist with 25 years experience working and training in the field of psychology. I have been qualified at doctoral level for 14 years. I work solely online, providing therapeutic services to clients throughout the UK, Ireland and to expats living throughout the world.

The human brain is tricky. It provides us with a whole array of amazing and more challenging emotions. Then during life, we have all these experiences that bring up feelings and responses that are overwhelming and often difficult to understand and process. This is where therapy can help.

The most important thing to me when working with clients is to provide a safe and comfortable space, where you feel contained and able to share all parts of you - so, that we can truly begin to understand and tune into what you need and how I can help. We can hold so much shame; opening up does not always come naturally. Clients tell me I help them feel at ease, seen and heard. I can bring much psychological knowledge and experience of using this to help others, but you are the one with the inner wisdom of your own life (even if it doesn't feel like that yet). This process can be challenging and emotional at times, but also eye-opening and transformative.

We can decide which therapies or combination of therapies we might integrate into our work together and how we might do so. I'm very person-centred in my approach drawing on my training and experience of Schema Therapy,  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.

I understand that choosing a therapist can be overwhelming, so please feel free to contact me to ask any questions you might have about how I might be able to help. I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation, if you feel that would be beneficial.
