About me

As a Clinical Psychologist I aim to to practically apply psychological theory and research to help people to achieve emotional well being and enhance their quality of life when they are facing challenging life circumstances. Since 2012 I have worked in a variety of NHS psychology services, offering talking therapy and emotional support to individuals, couples and families. For the last 5 years I have specialised in supporting people with long-term physical health conditions, including cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, Fibromyalgia and bowel conditions (e.g. IBS and IBD).

My therapy sessions are informed by the the well evidenced frameworks of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I also run 8-week mindfulness courses and retreat days aimed at developing mindfulness skills and self-compassion.

I provide a safe and confidential space where we can talk about the current difficulties you are facing in your life and we will work together to understand these difficulties. We will then explore practical and psychological coping strategies so that these challenges can begin to feel more manageable for you.

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.
