As a counselling psychologist my aim is to alleviate your emotional distress and promote your wellbeing through exploration and empowerment. Although I have a solid understanding of mental health diagnoses, my role is to understand your cultural, social, physical and spiritual experiences as opposed to labelling you.
Some of the most common issues that people come to see me about include:
- Depression, low mood and feelings of hopelessness
- Anxiety, feeling overwhelmed or worried
- Loss and bereavement
- Physical health conditions causing psychological distress
- Life transitions
- Self-esteem and confidence
...and many more
To see whether I am the right therapist for you then give me a call, text or email so we can discuss what you feel you may need support with. All calls, messages and emails will be kept confidential. Once we have agreed that we may be able to work together then we will find a time that's suitable for you to meet to explore things further.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training has given me the scientific knowledge founded in psychology to understand human behaviour combined with counselling skills to facilitate change. There are numerous therapeutic approaches but I strongly believe that there is no one 'right' approach, which is why I integrate several evidence-based theories to what might be best suited to you.
Aside from private practice, I also currently work for The Royal Marsden as a specialist counselling psychologist supporting cancer patients and their relatives. I also regularly volunteer as a clinical supervisor for a national charity helpline.
My previous clinical experience involves working in hospices, a GP surgery and NHS hospitals as well as within the private and voluntary sectors. I have had various roles in teaching and consultancy.

Clinical supervision is an integral part of our professional development to facilitate learning. Therefore, my approach to supervision is integrative, experiential, reflective and relational. I explore with my supervisees the use of themselves with clients as well as looking at the processes behind the different dynamics.It is also a place to discuss ethical dilemmas.
I currently supervise psychology doctorate trainees, qualified healthcare professionals and volunteers on a helpline.
My fees are £65 per supervision session although I do offer discounted rates for students.
