About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, or struggling to cope with distressing thoughts and feelings? I specialise in helping people with: anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship insecurities, self-destructive behaviours, and chronic pain or illness. My therapeutic style is calm, hopeful, and compassionate. As humans, we all struggle at times, and positive change is possible with the right knowledge and support.

I am a Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS). I am trained to doctoral level and I provide evidence-based and effective psychological therapies. I have extensive clinical and research experience.

I know that it can take courage to begin therapy and that choosing the right therapist for you is important. If you would like to explore the possibility of working with me, please feel free to contact me directly by email or by phone. My website also contains more information about my approach and the psychological therapies that I offer.
