About me

HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist with 17 years' post-qualfication experience across NHS, university and independent practice. Effective professional and friendly service. Additional qualifications: PGCert in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (intermediate qualification) and Masters degree in Narrative therapy. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups to overcome challenges and move towards goals. I use a range of therapeutic approaches, methods and techniques informed by my training and the unique characteristics of the person or people I am partnering with, in therapy. I use feedback and outcome measurement to fine tune therapy effectiveness.

I have significant experience supporting people to overcome challenges presented by:

  • ill health, physical limitations, pain, life-limiting diagnoses, disfigurement,
  • bereavement and loss,
  • physical and psychological trauma,
  • unfair and unequal treatment, (including discrimination, stereotyping and harassment),
  • depression, anxiety, phobias and stress,
  • loss of intimacy, communication difficulties, sexual difficulties and other areas of difficulty in relationships
  • conflict in relationships, families or teams
  • concerns about bonding or difficulties in relationships with babies and toddlers
  • feelings of being an imposter, fake, not fitting in or feeling not good enough
  • difficult to change behaviours and habits
  • living overseas
  • high pressure to succeed

I can offer services in Newcastle upon Tyne, Hexham and also online.

I spent three years working in an international university in Japan where I set up and provided mental health and wellbeing services for students, staff and family members. This gave me both personal experience of growth and development and also professional experience of working with people from many cultures and backgrounds, navigating cultural nuances and communication issues at the same time as working to resolve psychological distress or embarking on further personal development.
