About me

At some time or another, most, if not all of us, might need additional help in dealing with the difficulties that life can bring. I offer an empathetic and non-judgmental space from which I can help clients understand what has brought them to where they are now as well as facilitating a shift towards a more preferred present and future. My approach focuses very much on your innate strengths and how to build on these whilst also acknowledging the past.

I started working as a Psychologist in the NHS in 2009 and qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2014. My doctoral training equipped me with skills in a variety of therapeutic approaches and I work using an integrative approach to provide therapy that fits with the client.  I have met with many different people from all walks of life and people experiencing a range of difficulties. I have worked with children and adolescents, adults, older adults, those with learning disabilities, with individuals as well as groups. I also have a particular interest in working with people with chronic health conditions and persistent pain.

Regardless of the therapeutic model used, research suggests that the therapeutic relationship is key. I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation to give an opportunity for us to decide whether we feel we can work together. I am also happy to provide information over email.

Training, qualifications & experience

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
