About me

I am an experienced accredited Psychotherapist who has been working within the mental health field for more than 17 years. I can offer a safe, non judgmental and dynamic space to explore your difficulties using a collaborative approach.

I have been employed in a range of settings and gained experience in these specialties: alcohol and substance misuse, complex mental health, bereavement, adolescent depression and anxiety, adjustment to adversity including long term health changes, couples distress, perinatal difficulties, and eating difficulties.

My therapeutic approach focuses on cognitive behavioural strategies of helping others work collaboratively towards change and overcoming obstacles in their lives and strengthening their relationship with their inner self and increasing their sense of safety. If you would like to know more about building on your strengths and developing new skills to overcome your adversities please contact me for an initial assessment and discussion about therapy options.

Training, qualifications & experience

My core training is in psychology at University of East London, I completed a BSc Hons in psychology in 1998 and a masters degree in counselling psychology in 2004. Whilst training I worked within adolescent mental health settings, adult and children's paliative care and breavement service and adult substance misuse counselling where I developed skills in motivational interviewing and Person Centred Psychotherapy. I then went on to complete extensive training in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and schema therapy including a post graduate diploma in CBT at the Institute of Psychiartry in 2008.  I have followed this with further training over the years in behavioural couples therapy, perinatal mental health, eating disorders and compassion focused therapy.   I have also worked for a NHS obesity treatment team.

I currently also provide clinical supervision to therapists and continue to work for the NHS in a primary care psychology department with specialisms in perinatal and long term health conditions.
