Chartered and Clinical Psychologist

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.
