About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 9 years experience as a mental health professional. I have experience working with both children and adults experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties.

I work using a number of different psychological approaches, to provide personalised psychological therapy, tailored to suit each person’s needs. My therapeutic style is open and collaborative, recognising that we both bring our own expertise and experiences into our shared therapeutic space.

For more information about working with me, please have a look at my website

or feel free to contact me by email or telephone to discuss the areas you would like support with.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I currently work in a NHS secondary care mental health service, offering psychological therapy to support people with complex mental health needs, in addition to private practice.

I have worked at a specialist trauma service providing interventions for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), primarily using Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), a specialist Veteran's service providing assessment and consultation for ex-service personnel, and specialist psychosis services.  I have also worked at a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) where I worked with young people experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties.

Following doctoral training (Doctorate Clinical Psychology), I completed Level 3 training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I am trained to work using a range of therapeutic approaches and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of EMDR UK and Ireland.

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.
