Mental health difficulties can leave us feeling rejected, isolated and alone. This is a hard cycle to break, because we tend to manage our problems in ways that leave us feeling even worse. This is all part of being human. It affects our relationships, our sense of self and our ability to function on a day-to-day basis. It is at times like this that we need support. Someone who can help us to view our problems through a different lens and can help us develop the tools we need to break the cycle. Many people find that therapy is the key to managing their difficulties whilst leading more meaningful lives.
I offer an initial free chat over the phone or via email. I have been trained in a number of psychology therapies, which I use depending on the presenting problem. Should you decide to proceed with therapy, then we will discuss your goals and decide what approach may work best for you. The therapeutic process is a collaborative one and you are always in control.
I always adopt a compassionate and empathic approach with my clients. I strive to use my lived experience and psychological knowledge to truly understand my clients and work alongside them on the road to recovery.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BSc (Hons) First Class Honours Degree in Psychology, an MSc Distinction in Forensic Psychology, and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy). I have also received additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Focused Therapy (SFT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have over ten years of experience working with clients on a variety of mental health issues in various settings, including psychiatric hospitals and the community.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

When I work
Choosing a therapist that is right for you can be a difficult experience. For this reason, I aim to make the process as straightforward as possible. You are able to call or email me for free to discuss what you want from therapy, before deciding whether you would like to proceed with further sessions. I always take a compassionate approach with potential clients, as I appreciated that starting therapy can be stressful experience. There is no obligation to proceed and you are not expected to give reasons for your decision.
I hope this helps to alleviate any anxieties you may be experiencing and please feel free to contact me with any questions or queries.
