I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the HCPC and Chartered through the BPS. I work with children, adolescents and adults, in addition to providing support to parents. I support clients with different anxiety disorders (e.g. panic, OCD, generalised anxiety), depression, and relationship difficulties, as well as supporting parents of children who are struggling with their emotional well-being or in reaching their developmental milestones.
I work using an integrative model based on systemic therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, and drawing on psychodynamic thinking and attachment theory. I have specialist training in attachment focused therapy (Theraplay Level 1 and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) levels 1 and 2). I have over 11 years experience in conducting educational assessments to assess for specific learning difficulties.
